Ate them in Thailand once. They weren't too bad with a bit of hot sauce. I don't think I'd make a habit of it though.

 

Crickets. Tasted like hot crisps - human beings will eat anything. Tried worms but that was absolutely disgusting, nearly gagged.

You could buy them on the street in Bangkok. I used to buy them and feed them to the stray cats that lived in the grounds of a temple near Khao San Road. Never tempted by worms though. I've had sea cucumber which is like a giant slimy slug. Very popular in Japan in the winter months. They pickle them.

Yeah I'd try some. Bit of Suzy Salt and Percy Pepper, loverly jubbly!

 

I'm one of those who eats pretty much everything. Think one delicacy I probably would avoid is the live octopus. Sanakji. The film old boy put me off that one.....

One thing that has always got me is the Icelandic eating of fermented shark. I know someone who went there and tried it and to put it mildly they didn't like it too much.

Next they'll be reducing us to the style of food markets we saw pictures of in China with any old skanky animals hung up or alive in cages, that they tried to blame for the outbreak of the imaginary Covid. Remember? It was the Chinese' fault for eating fecking bats! 

 

And we're likely to do it if we're poor & hungry enough. 🤨

If anyone except the current crop of satanic psychos were behind it, I might consider it. Nutritionally I don't think there's much wrong with insects, it's more the agenda behind it that would make me refuse.

It ain't hard to raise rabbits. Plenty of wild squirrels in the city. Opossums make for a lovely stew. Doves can be tasty. There's still a lot of varmints for me to get through before I'd need to resort to bugs.

Now they want your kids to eat insects.:classic_angry: Now we know what the program-ing 'I'm a celebrity get me out' was all about.

 

I don't understand the push for this.

 

Years ago I read that the country of Ireland can produce enough agriculture to feed the whole of Europe. If Ireland alone can do that - how can we have food shortages?

 

Secondly, speaking to a UK farmer and they are still being paid NOT to grow! This has been going on since the 70's!

 

Aplarently we now have a fuel shortage, well Diesel engines run fine on BioDiesel so why aren't the farmers growing crops to produce cheap fuel. Even if its only for Ambulance's, Buses and Lorry's etc.

 

BioDiesel is Carbon neutral, it takes Carbon out of the environment while growing and when its burnt as fuel it simply puts the Carbon back into the environment.

 

BioDiesel has less NOX gasses than regular fuel, so its clean, renewable and Carbon neutral.

 

Why are we banning Diesels when running them on BioDiesel is cleaner and cheaper and less polluting. 

 

Why pay the farmers NOT to grow when thdy could grow the fuel that would power their own machinery saving them money and can be sold as fuel.

 

The waste from producing BioDiesel can be made into Cattle Cake to feed livestock, again saving farmers money.

 

And thats not mentioning the benefits of growing Hemp to produce clean carbon neutral fuel, cleaner paper and rope and fabrics etc

 

Petrol cars can be run on the fuel distilled from Hemp, Diesel cars run on BioDiesel, both are cleaner, cheaper, sustainable and Carbon neutral.

 

We have problems yes - but we also have the solutions, they just won't introduce them until they figure out how to charge you the same amount to maintain their profits and Tax revenues.

I'm quite fond of escargot especially in garlic butter 😊 but actual insects, the closest I've come is in China when my then girlfriend was munching away on fried crickets and offered me one, I declined politely.

First of all, there has never been any shortage of fuel, only the "manufactured contrivance" a few months back that gave people the 'perception' of a fuel crisis because they were panic-buying unnecessarily.

 

Secondly, I'm sure I've written about this before, but yes the UK Government 'missed a trick' in its attempts at 'Brexit' with regards to farming in the UK.

 

UK farmers have been in receipt of subsidies from the EU for years, and this was designed to keep production levels down, so that farmers on the European continent could enjoy an advantage.

 

What I believe the UK Government should have done, is to have unfettered our farmers, and start encouraging them to ramp up their crop and livestock production, so that we could have started producing more food for sale in the UK, rather than relying on cheap imports from the EU.

 

The EU subsidies could have easily been replaced by the UK Government providing grants and funding to farmers so they could buy more equipment, and start recruiting and training UK workers to do these new jobs, instead of importing cheap seasonal labour. (After all, we paid far more to the EU than we ever got back from them)

 

But no, instead the UK Government's "new farming policy" encouraged farmers and landowners to 'rewild' their land, or have useless solar panels or wind turbines installed, because of "green renewables" etc.

 

And as things stand, we are still importing vast amounts of food that we could be growing or producing ourselves, and due to transportation costs increasing as the price of fuel increases, consumers are being hit hard with price rises.

 

The UK Government has fucked over the people of this country, because it is not acting in the best interests of the people of this country.
