I had a very splendid lunch in Hot Pepper Jelly the other day - I had a Black Pudding Stack and a breakfast smoothie. The Black Pudding was excellent - properly spicy and fried crispy - so I'd go back for another. And the breaksfast smoothie is a very tasty way to get your oats.
I did see this sign in the window, though and given recent pronouncements by Gauke - apparently a government minister - it troubled my conscience. Is it my job to make sure that all the cash HPJ takes
is actually put through the books. Am I allowed to assume that this 'cash only' business is cash only for good reasons - that credit card processing is expensive and payment is slow, that cash is needed to pay the greengrocer and the butcher for supplies, - or must I check that the management is not acting immorally like the minister says
Given the immorality of cash transactions what are we to make of the fact that this "cash" stuff is produced on behalf of a Government Agency -the Bank of England - and that the Queen seems to be involved in some way. Does Her majesty know about this?
