I BET if you go over to Wicken on Sunday you will be able to buy some British-made goods, which is more than you can do in some high streets these days. It was announced last week that HP Sauce is now to be made in Holland.

Even matches aren't what they seem. "England's Glory," the ones that always have a motto or joke on the back, are now made in Sweden.

One thing I always buy in Wicken these days is regular bags of potatoes. Grown in Wicken, bagged in Wicken and sold in Wicken. You can't get much more English than that. And what are these patriotic spuds called? Picasso!
