Had Their Chips

‘THE days of chips with everything are drawing to a close.

‘You’ll never take me alive!’

The Independent reports that the humble potato is under attack from noxious pests, like the spud-free Atkins diet and the popularity of rarer vegetables.

As a result, the British Potato Council is launching a campaign to restore the potato to it position as mainstay of the British plate under the slogan ‘Fab not fad’.

‘Not only are potatoes great for energy, but they are low in salt, almost fat-free, cholesterol-free and with important vitamins and minerals,’ enthuses Fiona Hunt, a nutritionist for the council.

And if you are lucky enough to find a sparrow to go with them, you’ve got yourself a great meal.
