  • The Nanny-State is here to stay...

    Spotted in yesterday's "Times Online":
    "A spicy sausage known as the Welsh Dragon will have to be renamed after Trading Standards' officers warned the manufacturers that they could face prosecution because it does not contain dragon.
    The sausages will now have to be labelled Welsh Dragon Pork Sausages to avoid any confusion among customers."
    "A Powys County Council spokesman said:"the product was not sufficiently precise to inform a purchaser of the true nature of the food"

    So wave goodbye to toad-in-the-hole and hot-dogs...
