    Default 'Iceland' boss on FSAI burger test results: “Well, that’s the Irish, isn’t it?”

    Iceland boss apologises for comment about 'the Irish'

    Mr Walker had been asked to explain why Iceland burgers passed British tests for equine DNA but failed the Irish tests.

    He replied: “Well, that’s the Irish, isn’t it?”

    The FSAI rejected Mr Walker's comments and warned that any attempt to cast doubt on the veracity and robustness of DNA testing carried on its behalf is disingenuous, dishonest and untruthful.

    His grovelling apology is pathetic.

    Here's one former Iceland customer who won't shop there again so long as Walker is CEO.

    I thought that horses were very popular in Iceland.

    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Maybe we should remind him of something that is Irish....

    Iceland sell their products for the lowest price of anybody going in UK and Ireland and nobody questions the ingredients.

    They've got a fifth gait which probably adds to the taste.

    As far as Mr Walker is concerned, that's exactly what I'd expect, Well that's the British for you, inn'it?

    They are just miffed that it was us that first discovered it all. Their minister of agriculture admitted as much last week.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Pretty much as they wanted to use it as an Irish problem and UK was ok, that one fell flat on its face very quickly.
