Well, I guess I owe you an apology Chris. I misinterpreted your joke. An unhappy face may have easily been meant sardonically.
However, if you think that only one (1) case of mad cow is the actual reason that there is still a ban, after all the testing thats been done (long ago), then I doubt you understand international politics too well.
Walkndude, I still haven't recieved any intelligent reply to your HB comment. Afraid too?
