You know it’s a crisis when a summit is called. Owen Paterson is meeting representatives of the industry, while Labour have called an Opposition Day debate this afternoon on a matter that has yet, and probably never will, kill anybody. Compare the horse meat saga reaction to near silence that greeted the Francis Report into the death of 1,200 people at the hands of the NHS. After a flurry of concern on the day the report was published, it’s now back to business as usual and criticism for anyone who speaks out again the Envy of the World. While Labour are gunning for scapegoats in government for the food industry, those actually to blame for what happened at Stafford Hospital remain under the radar at the Department of Health, presumably loving the giant equine distraction.
