"Let them eat pig swill - they love it" - Boris Johnson

UK - In 2001, in a fit of unnecessary alarm, they abolished swill feeding. In so doing, the Government whacked an industry which was worth 340 million a year, and which disposed of 1.7 million tons of biodegradable material in the most natural way possible. The 62 licensed swill users had their livelihoods taken away, without compensation. Now I am sure that many readers, being solid trencherpersons, will share my prejudices on this question. We all know a spot of properly cooked swill never hurt anyone.
