Not Cooking Tonight in The Castle
It’s a story of traditional British pluck in the face of an assault from across the Channel: the nation’s Aga owners are uniting in the face of a Brussels directive that they believe is playing havoc with their pilot lights. Thanks to European Union insistence on lower sulphur levels in domestic kerosine, oil-fired Agas are said to be caking up with soot, and in some cases conking out.
My Aga clogged up over the weekend again because of the bloody oil and now is as cold as a womans heart. My thoughts about the EU are slightly less charitable than they normally are.
