Hello Dear Reader…………..well one in particular…………..wavy Dave!!!!!!
Now, I’m not for one moment suggesting that Wavy Dave is a regular reader, but if he had any sense, he would start listening to the people who pay his wages. Now I know posh bods like himself would never be seen dead, pasty in hand, in the office canteen, eating his lunch with the normal folk. He’s never likely to hitch up his overalls and head to Gregg’s for a hot savoury. Why would he…………….chef will sort it!
The last time a government imposed a daft tax that no one agreed with, a huge ‘fuss’ was made! In recent times, the Cornish pasty has been given the same status as Stilton cheese, or even Champagne. To be called a Cornish pasty, it must be made in Cornwall. This has helped secure local jobs and has boosted the local economy. Food costs do not include VAT but what next? 20% tax added to your hot crusty bread, will it be cheaper an hour later when it’s cooled down? This tax is just silly and certainly, a bunch of posh toffs who get someone else to cook lunch for them will never feel the impact of this!
Is this a frugal issue? I think so. Many people can still afford a freshly baked pasty for about £2 and it’s a meal in itself. This will now make Cornwall’s favourite food a lot more expensive!
On a lighter note, here’s Kernow King and his tribute the county’s favourite food!
