    Whenever returning from 'oop north', we drop into Killington Lake Services' farm shop for a slab of 'dead fly pie'-two slices of pastry wrapping a thick seam of currants. Simple but nice. All gone before re-joining M6

    Sounds a bit like Garibaldi biscuits - or 'squashed fly' biscuits as I like to call them.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Have you ever wondered why so many biscuits are named after revolutionaries?

    What - you mean Lenin, Marx, Trotsky, Mao, Rosa Luxembourg, Castro and Guevara biscuits? More a case of "a biscuit in every barrel", rather than "a chicken in every pot".

    "Mr Nice" wasn't a revolutionary, he just sold lots of weed, which led to his followers eating lots of biscuits
