The Far right, rascist groups in Britain like UKIP and EDL are tonight raising a storm over what they claim are “Halal” Heinz beans and calling for a boycott.

The UKIP lot will be really stuck for things to eat then. Meat & Poultry is classed as Halal when slaughtered according to Islamic law. Here are some facts about Halal.
