Blog: Dean BestYou can keep your haggis

Dean Best | 4 August 2009

Our Scottish cousins are fighting back.

After yesterday's reports here that haggis could in fact be English (really, could it?), food makers north of the border have stood firm.

"The question of origin cannot change the fact that haggis has been nurtured and developed by Scotland for centuries to become globally renowned as our national dish," sniffed Paul McLaughlin, chief executive of Scotland Food & Drink.

"Haggis is and will continue to be synonymous with Scotland.”

Hear hear, I say. I mean, as an Englishman, I really would prefer the Scots kept their haggis.

Give me a Melton Mowbray pork pie any day.
