A step back from politics for a moment for the most important debate of our times that is raging at the moment – Hot Cross Buns!

You see my friend Peter has been having a bit of a debate on his blog about Hot Cross Buns here.

Now having been brought up as a Catholic boy, I know that you should only eat them from Good Friday onwards, but like so many traditions that really has gone by the wayside these days, indeed growing up I remember with fondness the taste of freshly toasted buns with lashings of marg.

Still, I was going to try and keep to the Easter only idea this year.

That was until I got home from canvassing this evening to find my wife whipping some cream, with a pot of raspberry jam on the side and buns ready for toasting. Needless to say I was easily tempted and I can report to you all that Hot Cross Buns, served like cream tea scones are really most excellent!

    Now you see… if hot cross buns were given out
    on polling days the turn out would be huge!
    (or is that bribery and corruption?)

    Sadly I think it would be considered bribery, but at the risk of making everyone groan – I think that’s a “tasty” idea!
