The scandal over horse meat dressed as beef reminded me of a letter I wrote to the Star in 2010, part of which read:
"I think I am right in supposing that if I ordered and paid for a selection of vegetarian foodstuff and an assortment of meats was included I would be entitled to have the order replaced, or a refund, and likely compensation.
"Millions of people voted tactically for the Liberal Democrats thinking they were opposing the Tories but it turned out they were supporting them.
"This situation cannot continue to be tolerated in a supposed democracy."
One hundred per cent beef turns out to be horse meat and the Liberal Democrat manifesto 100 per cent horse shit!
