Via the Independent:
No person shall, in the course of business, import into England potatoes which he knows to be or has reasonable cause to suspect to be Polish potatoes
Don’t believe me – go check the government’s website for the full law, which was passed way back in 2004.
What has the Polish potato ever done to hurt Johnny Englishman???
(Oh, and while you’re busy sniggering at the stupidity of it all, consider this – in Tony Blair’s government has created a staggering 3,000 new criminal offences during its nine years in office).
