Deja Vu 1990: Gummer enlists daughter in BSE fight

Swap the word horse for BSE and here we are again.

"The government has again attempted to reassure the public that British beef is safe..."

"The Minister of Agriculture, John Gummer, even invited newspapers and camera crews to photograph him trying to feed a beefburger to his four-year-old daughter, Cordelia, at an event in his Suffolk constituency.

Although his daughter refused the burger, he took a large bite himself, saying it was "absolutely delicious".

"Beef can be eaten safely by everyone, both adults and children, including patients in hospital"
