Afternoon all,
It’s the election day in UK, and, as such no political comments please. Where Angles Fear to Tread is bravely stepping into the breach tonight to report on the results that matter, the outcomes, tears, spills and anything else we find of interest.
Those who followed the US election with us will know the format. We are here in a secret location in Kent, England, with boards, food and a Red Bull cafeine type substitute for the late night. We have already been out shopping for things which are quintensially British and have the following ready for consumption tonight and early tomorrow:

  • Bacon, Sausage & Egg for Breakfast
  • Bitter (proper beer)
  • West Country Cider
  • Pimms & Lemonade
  • Crisps & Dips
  • Baked Beanz – it’s got to be Heinz(!)
  • Heinz Tomato Ketchup & HP Sauce
  • Jammie Dodgers
  • Bakewell Slices
  • Cheese – Red Leicester, Wensleydale & Stilton
  • Flapjack type snacks
  • Cornish Pasties
  • Bread
  • Sausage Rolls
  • Scotch Eggs
  • (Jamaica) Ginger Cake
  • Indian Starters
  • Pork Pie
  • Mushrooms, Tomatoes and Grapes

We are also planning to go out to eat this evening, so we needed to choose a typical British location. Many options here in Kent, including Fish & Chips, a pub lunch, strangely not Italian Pizzas etc… However, we’re off to have a curry! One can’t get a lot more British than that for an evening out.

Following obstuseangle’s introduction, I will say a quick hello, before we go into town and try to find some food & drink with an American angle. (Apologies for the bad pun).  I will also write a huge, long and rambling introduction later.
