I was in Lidl last night and was amazed to find green, red and yellow peppers in a plastic bag covered in union jacks. Great British Peppers I thought as I put them back. I’m sure that peppers can be grown in the southern part of England or possibly in greenhouses, but I’m these ones came from Spain and were packed in Britain.
Then there was a section of Great British Cheeses including I noticed, some with suspiciously foreign names. Just some mistake by the staff, I’m sure.
In my efforts to find food that wasn’t covered with jacks, I did discover some really nice French ham, some German sausage and some lovely Spanish chorizo, so all is not lost, and along in Aldi (much better), I got some nice Scottish cheese.
Honestly, Brits, we’re really not that thick.
In the meantime, to cheer me up, show me Brits taking back control in foreign parts:
Taking back control of thuggery, eh?
