What? None of them?

That could create a crippling stumbling block to loads of trade agreements.
There's little room for morals and ethics in a true business environment. It's just the way of the world.

Wot abhat noshing on oysters then?

Actually for someone normally on a low protein diet deficient in a number of minerals, especially iron, reptile blood would be a great tonic.

The still beating heart of a snake, preferably a cobra dropped in a glass of 50/50 vodka and snake blood is not quite as awful as it might sound, but hardly kosher!

It's amazing what one has to eat or drink in order not to offend your host. There is the occasional pleasant surprise, for example Canadian Prairie Oysters proved to be very nice indeed!

I kind of see your point, but when we trade with countries that are not democratic it usually ends in disaster. We are now trading with Iran courtesy of the EU, who have decided its a great move to develop and use their new INSTEX Transaction system to get around the sanctions because it allows direct access to Iranian banks and uses the Euro instead of the Dollar.

Great !

This is all we need - more funding of terror regimes, nuclear weapons programs and our enemies.

you'll be saying its ok to boil urine and drink it next. Some countries are still living in the dark ages and i see it as cruel. There's enough food to feed us with things that grow from trees, bushes and in the ground.

Re: China Must get It's Come-uppance?

1 Drinking snake blood for virility is no weirder than eating a miniature flatbread and washing it down with a bit of wine while believing it somehow turns into flesh and blood and the whole proxy cannibal affair is the core of a particular religious practice.

2 Yesterday China, today us - doctors and nurses are being threatened with disciplinary action, even dismissal, if they speak tot he media or post anything on social media about the state of the NHS re. coronavirus

A lot of people drink their own urine au naturale as it is. Unless you've got a dose of something or such as an NSU (not the motorbike) or infection it should be sterile.
A quite famous Indian PM, I believe it was a disciple of Ghandi - Morarj Desai - certainly did.

Not as tasty as a nice juicy steak or a well cooked piece of Haddock with batter on Lion Queen......Yum! Yum!

I've just decided what the first thing is that I will do when this is all over..........F&C
