So the Cornish pasty wins protected status . That'll mean good news for Cornish jobs I hope. Well done to the Cornish Pasty Association for the work they have done on this.
Please note though that whilst our inoffensive crimped pies get recognition our 1000 year old frontier with England is on the verge of getting trashed by the two-faced LibConDems.
Equally, whilst Cornish Pasties are worthy of European recognition the government currently thinks that our Cornish culture is not. To date the UK government has refused to recognise the Cornish under the Council of Europe's framework convention of the protection of national minorities (FCNM). A treaty specifically designed to protect and promote the culture of long-standing minority groups like the Cornish.
