    Pasty Wars.



    Doubts have been raised about the plausibility of Cameron's account as the West Cornwall Pasty Stall closed in Leeds Station in 2007. But apparently there is a Cornish Bakehouse there.

    The labour opposition of keen to show they are of the people unlike the Toff Cameron:



    They ordered 8 pasties between the three of them? Kinda reminiscent of of the Goodness Gracious Me 'Going for an English' sketch where they order 24 plates of chips. However, to be charatible maybe they were buying extras for their campiagn staff and were going to distribute them in true socialist style. Or like Jesus with the bread and fishes.

    Cameron will be delighted if a lot of silly fuss about a possible inaccuracy in something he said about buying a pasty distracts from the recent scandal of Tory fund-raising methods.

    cameron met a black man, ate a pastie and held a pint in the most unconvincing manner.

    If he lies about something as trivial as eating a pasty tho what else has he lied about?

    Dirty money and systematic corruption in politics is old hat, eating fictional pasties on the other hand is a national scandal!

    yeah, seriously. If you want a cheap pie and a can of beer after you knock off work you cannot have either. Osborne, a cokehead and consorter with loose women* has decided that you can't. Safe as fuck mate, why don't you just spread my cheeks and dry bum me while you are there.

    * I don't object to sex workers, just osborne using them. The fucking cunt.

    I bloody love Greggs. It's the only thing I envy about the North. I saw a programme once where they showed a Greggs branch somewhere up there and it was huge :D

    "oooh look, we eat pasties! They don't eat pasties, evil bastards! This proves that we understand the common man and they don't"
    "No no, we eat pasties too, love 'em. I love 'em so much I can remember exactly when and where I had my last one"

    For. Fuck's. Sake.

    No-one is coming out of this with any dignity, including the media that's covering it.

    Yes it is almost ridiculous in its petty, nasty party way. What do those dirty proles like? Cheap alcohol and greggs pasties. Well by golly I'll take both from them.

    George Osborne is a nasty little shit who should be impaled on a spike

    I worked for GDS who are greggs and bakers oven's delivery bods. It's an in house thing, the greggs deliveries were easy, they bakers oven ones not so much because they were in villages and thus access to buildings was a chore.

    I'd lay an entire tray of half-baked frozen sausage rolls as wager that David Cameron has never in his life frequented a downmarket bakery. He's just a fucking liar, simple as.

    the bakers oven in wycombe has now been bought by greggs. Is that the same all over the country?

    Greggs and Bakers Oven are the same company, they just jack the prices up for Bakers Oven. For the same fucking goods lol.

    If they have re-branded a former Bakers Oven as a Greggs it just means they were losing money trying to charge premium prices and are scaling down to a cheaper brand image.

    Actually I like that place. I've had "premium price" goods that make me gag they are so bad.

    I would not oppose this tax if it was exclusively aimed at Greggs, tbh. They are everywhere now, even competing* against the culinary might of Gerrards and Hulsons at home.

    * in economic terms only, their food is rancid

    DownwardDog Stop calling them cogs.

    I once had the misfortune to get on a flight from Newcastle to Barcelona. The words NORTHERN ROCK were not legible on many of the passengers' NUFC shirts due to crumbs and flakes from Greggs pasties bought in the airport.

    Stopped eating my daily Greggs belgian bun about three months ago - already feel loads better. Their food is shit.

    BUT it does fill you up when you are hungry and have fifty pence left in your pocket. Probably something that Cameron has never experienced in his life.
