Scrimping for crimping.

Cornish MPs pledge to fight a so-called 'pasty tax'.

VAT is being added to hot take-away food.

The 20% levy means a £2.50 Oggy will end up costing you £3.00.

Camborne Councillor Jude Robinson has issued a challenenge: "Are our MPs going to defend our pasty, our businesses and our exports from the coalition? Or are they going to do what they did over the Devonwall boundary changes and the NHS; make a few squeaky noises and then vote in favour when the whips order them to fall in line?
 
"The wide range of excellent pasty shops in Camborne town centre will feel the pinch making it even tougher for business on our high streets and companies like Ginsters, which export thousands of pasties from Cornwall and are vital for our economy will be affected as well".
