I know this is my second gratuitous 'Pie Post' this week but it is important 'National News' that is worthy of 'Lucy In The Sky' Blogging Attention. Here is our Prime Minister posing as a hard up Pasty Eater!
|With all the Porky Pies he tells he better be careful his pasty doesn't choke him!|
It takes a good old 'Pasty Row' to bring the Parliamentary dignitaries to my home town, I don't think they would have been brave enough to go to Cornwall, where Pasties and tourists are the mainstay of the County. Cornish Pasties have European Union 'Protected Geographical Status'. They have crucial place in History and Culture.
The Cornish Pasty Association Website has a great video explaining the Cultural Heritage of this humble 'meal'.
|Here is Ed Milliband the Labour Party Leader and Ed Balls (The Shadow Chancellor) Posing outside Greggs the Bakers in my home town this week.|
|Sometimes I sneak in here for a 'hot' Sausage Roll (but don't tell anyone). I would have been mortified to be caught on national news, sneaking my unhealthy snack.|
|This shot is just to prove to my 'Local' Blog Audience that this was in fact 'our' Greggs '.|
I did witness all this kerfuffle as I drove past but I was unaware as to who and what it was, as I was on my way to err. . . . ummm. . . do my bit for the 'Panic Buying Petrol Crisis'.
Strange times we are in indeed. I am sure at some point today I will be making Pasties and I won't be driving far!
