Big Offal debate will go ahead

Sir Norman Wrassle
The Tripe Marketing Board has confirmed that it will be participating in The Big Offal debate at the UK National Meat Processors' conference in May 2015, despite attempts by rival meat-based marketing agencies to scupper the event.

The debate - the highlight of the conference - was due to see the TMB pitched against British Spleen, the UK Heart Council and Hmmm! Liver! (the Liver Promotion Board), until the LPB announced it would withdraw from the event unless the Haggis Council and the Northern Irish Drisheen Manufacturers' Assoication were included.

Speaking at a meeting of the East Lancashire Ladies' Circle this afternoon, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "I'm surprised that our colleagues at the LPB have taken this position.  I can only think that they are running scared at the recent successes of tripe.  I would like to reassure you that the debate will go ahead and, if necessary we will have an empty space on the butchers' slab reserved for liver - so to speak".
