PastyGate

Posted: May 29, 2012 in This is the Voice of Lefty Reason

Hilarity yesterday as the ever-ridiculous LibCons u-turned themselves inside out over pasties and caravans.  Yep, that’s right folks, the Cornish delight and the mobile home are the new focus of Government policy.  You couldn’t, as they say, make it up.  An utterly embarrassed David Gauke, Treasury Minister, appeared on TV last night to defend the U-turnery.  The definitions of “hot” and “cold” takeaway food were feasted over; are the tasty flakey-pastry-beauties hot?  Cold? Warming up?  Cooling down?  On a shelf or in a cabinet?  I envisaged armies of Government “Thermometer Tsars” roaming the high streets of Britain casing Greggs and Hampsons in search of illicitly warmed up meal-deals.  It really has come to something when the definition of a “hot” pasty has to be debated and altered in an attempt to defend another ill thought out and unenforceable Government policy.  I imagine that never in his wildest and most hideous nightmares did Mr Gauke ever see himself on national TV having to defend this nonsense and quell the Pasty Riots; I almost felt sorry for him.  There will be dancing and rejoicing in Cornwall at the news that their favourite is back on the menu.
