Diplomatic spat of the week

"Chile and Peru have for some time been embroiled in a dispute over the origins of the potato. Chile's latest claim to be the region where potatoes first grew is being hotly refuted in the Peruvian press....However, the controversy is not over by a long chalk. Researchers in Bolivia say they have found traces of the potato which are more ancient than those found in either Chile or Peru". Source

And to think that there are people who deem the British press shallow.

Anyway, 'like a sack of old potatoes, the night has a thousand eyes'.
