I've been laughing about that since I saw it this morning - I can picture the court case (very Pythonesque):
"You are charged that on the 24th May you wilfully sold a round of cheese for the express purposes of cheese rolling - how do you plead madame?"
"I was only trying to make a living, I never expected the Spanish Inquisition..."

Nah, Their Cheese Shop didn't actually have any to sell.

I agree. Waste of damn good cheese in my opinion!

I imagine if she simply sold a cheese to someone that was subsequently used in an illegal cheese-chasing event then she couldn't be held liable, there's no law against selling cheese and the vendor is not responsible for what a customer does with a product (otherwise I'd have sued Dyson a long time ago...), it would probably only be an issue if she supplied the cheese free of charge or for a nominal fee that wouldn't be considered enough to be regarded as a realistic purchase.

Although it could be determined that description the Dyson Ball Cleaner could be misinterpreted :rofl:
Whilst this story is amusing, it does somewhat confirm my theory that the world is now officially bonkers
Can you imagine the headline if someone received injuries:
"Granny Receives ASBO For Dangerous Cheese"
Brilliant. Yet another tradition that officialdom wants to interfere with.
And no-one expects the Spanish Inquisition!

Talking of cheese.
I'm at a family do at the weekend and last time I hit them with the Stinking Bishop.
Anyone got any recommendations (that are easy to purchase) for something with a similar chessiness ?
And I do feel a little weirder than usual asking this question on a hifi forum, but this is probably the best resourse.........

I can't wait to go and buy it and then take it to someone else's house to eat !
You're right, sell it at full price with a disclaimer on the wrapper "this product is designed to be eaten; the retailer accepts no responsibility should it be used for anything other than it's designated purpose."
And I'm not sure the cheese is wasted, I believe it usually survives the event and is then used for its designated purpose.
Double Gloucester? Pah!
(I was "made" quite near Cheddar, so I might be a bit biased. And don't confuse that stuff they sell in the supermarkets with real Zummerzet cheddar, preferably consumed ploughman's style with a couple of pints of proper cider - not scrumpy - to wash it down with). :beer:
Ravey Gravey Davy - sorry for delay in replying.
Just fantastic thanks - I invested in some as you suggested and then made a mixed leaf salad (I made the dressing with some green pesto, thinned with some lemon infused olive oil and I also threw in some toasted pine nuts). I also made some Soda bread to go with (came out really well too).
Perfect - any further cheese recommendations welcome at this time.
