British food for British Government?
Gordon Brown recently talked about British jobs for British workers. Well now it is time to put his money where his patriotic mouth is…or rather it is time he stood up for British produce. Instead of Government receptions serving French Champagne, Chilean Merlot and Brazilian beers with Portuguese strawberries, French asparagus and apples and butter, the Government could be sourcing food and drink locally, providing a huge boost to our home grown produce. Frazer Thompson of Kent’s Chapel Down Winery, the owners of the wonderful new vineyard in Blue Bell Hill, has started a petition on the Number 10 website calling for the Government to source their food and drink from Britain. You can sign it HERE.
