3They already have an 'ash cloud' fee in their booking system but expect the fee to go up. He will in fact love this. He can use it to dump on Europe like he uses this kind stuff to dump on the Irish, Spanish, Italian and whoever governments and the DAA. It makes him/Ryanair look good.

5Tesco don't have to carry out quality control but they are going to. I'm not sure if any of the unaffected supermarkets will but it is disappointing that BK look set to buy their burgers form Germany,.

6I think Tesco and other supermarkets should at least carry out audits to guarentee the quality of what they sell. We would expect it so that suppliers didn't use child or slave labour so why not what what the wrapper says are the ingredients are in fact the truth. Otherwise we can't accept anything that is said, like calory count, fat or sugar content, or whether it is free trade or organic, or best before date.

7You gets what you pays for, whether it be burgers or flights.
Ryanair is one of the few airlines still making a profit but like all airlines their margins are thin. They don't worry about PR, and the results show that they don't need to.

9If you think beef burgers at 8 for £1 are going to be 100% beef then I've got a Glasgow football club to sell you. The UK FSA stipulates that full price beef burgers should be 62% and "economy" beef burgers be 47% beef, so you could look at the horse as a bonus.

1327/29% of whole burger. If the truth be known, there is nothing wrong with shoving in all the horsemeat, it is a labelling and consumer rights problem. If it said on the pack 'This el cheapo beef burger contains 29% horse' it'd be grand. Processed ham can be 11% water, it just has to say it.
To be honest, its been a long time since I bought an el cheapo burger, can't think, maybe I never have. I buy roo burgers when back in Oz. Might have bought them for a barbie once or twice, always good to palm off onto rug rats who wouldn't appreciate a nice slice of sirloin or roo.
It is just disappointing that this crap - which Ireland shouldn't be bothering its arse making, let them make them in northern England - may be causing damage to the food export industry.

14Then that puts a whole different picture on the problem. The meat content of the burger was very nearly 50%. Almost as much horse meet as beef. That wasn't the image I had in my mind but now you think of it it makes sense. I wonder how many other people thought it was 29% of the meat not the burger..
I don't eat burgers by the way.
