No wonder Andy Burnham has such shiny hair

Because he's been dosing up on his Omega 3:

Mr. Peter Ainsworth: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much fish was procured by his Department and at what cost in each of the last five years, broken down by species; and what amount and value of such fish met the Marine Stewardship Council standard in each such year, broken down by species. [217901]

Margaret Hodge: The Department holds the information set out relating to fish purchased in financial year 2007-08. Information is not available for previous years. Source

Product Approximate w eight (kg) 2007-08 Total c ost 2007-08 (£) Marine Stewardship Council Standard

Haddock/cod fillet tail




Tuna in brine




Sandwich prawns




Smoked salmon




Salmon fillet




Good for all sorts up other things, alas, thus also aiding Enver Hodge and the rest of them too.

I quite fancy a seafood / fish pun death match, so if anyone fancies joining in. I think this is the right plaice...

More evidence that this government is out of tuna with the rest of us.

I couldn't possibly, I have a haddock. At least, I think I can fillet coming on.

At this rate, this will be salmon chanted evening.

For Cod's sake, couldn't you come up with something better than that? I feel like contributing another, just for the halibut.

Alex Salmon, asked what the government Line was on fish knife crime.
Guppy Smith replied that she Cod see offenders being brought to Eel very quickly by the Coarse that she was proposing in this Plaice. The Sole Porpoise of taking them to see the victims would be to scare them onto the Skate and narrow canal path.The policy has already been tried in Whales.
Mr Salmon remarked he thought that this policy would just rub salt and vinegar into their already gaping wounds.

14Kgs of salmon fillet for 52 squid? Name that supplier, please!  

Blogger Obnoxio The Clown said... 4:58 pm

Yea, verily and forsooth, Tuscan Tony ... those prices are way too low, all of them!

Dare I say it? Something smells a bit fishy about all this!

TT - My mate in the catering business reckons that a trade price of £6/7 per kg is the absolute minimum for tolerable quality.

Nick - She hasn't sung yet.
