Battle of the pasty; Your say.

I SEE that bounder Osbourne, has declared war on the British pasty eater, by his punitive taxation on the nation's favourite snack, and anyone who has the brass faced cheek to ask for it to be hot. I ask you? Who in their right mind would be so cruel? The humble pasty that sustained the nation through both world wars, that supported Captain Scott as he braved the bitter icy wilderness, that sustains building workers toiling in the cold, bitter winter sites.

But whether you are a Cornish, steak and kidney, or cheese and onion addict, let battle commence and send the scoundrel Osbourne back to his vegetarian palace of Westminster.
