Since 2002 the fine burghers (it has been pointed out that Cornwall, being a rural county - and indeed being a formally Celtic nation was not host to Saxon burghs - therefore it would be host to Burghers. So instead I should say Jurates) of Cornwall have been trying to get protected status for their pasties. Matters came to a head a while back when a Devonian won the pasty makers crown, and there is the complicated issue of when a swede is not a swede, (when it is a turnip).
So today is a remarkable day, today is the day of recognition. From this time henceforth unless your pasty has been concieved and baked on the other side of the Tamar it cannot be decribed as Cornish.
So how do we prove that this is so. How do we prove that that pie is a pasty - by it having an EU logo.
So let me get this staright, if a Cornish pasty wishes to prove it is cornish, it must state that it is european. Why not have a cross of St Pirran with the CPA logo and be done with it?
Do we really need an EU logo to localise?
