    Anyone in the UK who wants to get Cameron to climb down over the infamous pasty tax? Here's the Sun's petition, halfway down this article:

    I wonder how much of that pasty Boy George threw in the bin - he doesn't look too impressed with it!  Maybe it was made 5 years ago on Leeds Station like the imaginary one that Call Me Dave supposedly ate lol

    In my Marie Antoinette mode "Let them eat pasties!"

    Tax the whole lot of them! In fact double tax on them!

    PS In case you think I've gone mad- I am allergic to them!!

            You're lucky!  The one thing that is really hard to get in the London area is good fish and chips, and around here in the hinterland it is all chicken take aways that make KFC look classy!

              When I lived and worked in London back in the 80s, there was this fantastic fish & chip cafe on Theobalds Road in Holborn. It served the best fish & chips I have ever tasted, and was run by Italians. I and my colleagues used to go there on Friday lunchtime and stagger back to the office. Not much work got done at my office on Friday afternoons lol
