Can this possibly bode well?

From The Independent:
Take a sheep's heart, its liver, and lungs, mince together with onion, oatmeal, spices, and salt, and boil in the animal's stomach for three hours. It is, of course, haggis, and now, it seems, the English just can't get enough of Scotland's national dish.


Marks & Spencer has seen a 35 per cent increase in sales of haggis compared with this time last year, while Asda, Waitrose, and Sainsburys have all seen rises of more than 10 per cent.


In 2006, the Scottish government expressed reservations about the high levels of salt and fat in their national dish, grouping haggis with burgers and chips on a list of restricted foods which should only be eaten by children under five once a week.

We live in desperate times.
