Watch your back

Brit is getting understandably hot under his collarless grandpa shirt about the Kraft takeover of Cadbury.

It's at times like these that we Brits need to draw on our moral and cultural reserves to resist. And a perennial source of inspiration has been found in England's glorious literature. Where else did Winston Churchill find his resonantly defiant phrasing?

To this end, I've adapted one of Nobel-laureate Harold Pinter's anti-American poems, 'Democracy':

There's no escape.
The big pricks are out.
They'll fuck everything in sight.
Watch your back,
And your Creme Eggs.


Oh yes, we shall fight. And I have nothing to offer you but blood, toil, tears, sweat and overly sweet, creamy vegelate.

Never mind, just down the road in Alferton is Thorntons (founded in Sheffield 1911)

We will send all the shareholders of Kraft a large box of Thorntons special toffee each, one week later while they are all at the dentist having their fillings put back we will strike and take it all back.

An Absolute full proof plan. We may be out of chocolate but we will fight back with toffee.

our vegelate may be rubbish, but its still better than their vegelate

Cadbury stopped making their superb Plain Chocolate with Almonds, the only chocolate bar I've ever eaten routinely. Bugger 'em.

So in what manner did you eat the other ones, Dearieme?

As long as Dairy Milk still tastes like Dairy Milk there will be some hope left in this world...
