From the wonderful people who define the carrot as a fruit...

....come the swine that are cattle.

While googling for a reference to carrots being defined as fruit for the purposes of EU jam regulations, I found that Tim Worstall had done all the leg work years ago (for which thanks).

Anyway, the first pork processing plant in Turkey - death threats notwithstanding - is set to commence operations. Not very interesting in itself, but for this:

"Pork has important potential and is unused wealth in Turkey, said [Gencay] Tunç (founder of the plant). In 2006, the government amended the regulation on foodstuffs to comply with European Union laws. Pigs are included within the category of cattle stockbreeding".

Did you know that one of the biggest producers of pigskin for the fashion industry is Israel? Yes, really. Whilst Israelis are not allowed to have pigs on the 'hallowed' turf they circumnavigate this - clever/sneaky bastards - by keeping the pigs in pens raised on pallets, thus the pigs are not 'on the ground'. the meat is sold quite openly as "white beef". Look - business is business......

How primitive is this country still:they should think about this siriously if there is any chans to make profit and job for people especially in this economicly poor countrysids of Turkey. they don't need to eat the pork they just need to produce for export for their good.
