Viva España

I bought some groceries at Tesco today. We're going to have an ox tongue salad this evening, so I sought several salad ingredients.

Here's an interesting, not to say surprising, observation: the cucumber, little gem lettuce, tomatoes and broccoli are all from Spain. The clementines are from Spain, too; and the Pink Lady apples emanate from France, along with the French Exquisa potatoes.

Talk about the slogan, Buy British! Tesco buys from wherever they can get the goods. What a cosmopolitan and continental shopping-basket. Never let it be uttered that his lordship isn't multi-cultural.
