The meaning of bruschetta

There is no stopping this particular Barthesian mytheme. BBC Online’s Magazine rounds up the blogging on Glastonbury and then wanders off into a discussion of bruschetta blogging.

It’s tempting to see the debate as like that of Monty Python’s People’s Front Of Judea, but of course, the argument isn’t just about the meaning of bruschetta: it’s an animated conversation about such old British favourites as the war, the government, the media and, of course, class.

One thing it has also done has meant that I can’t eat a bleedin bit of oily toast without feeling I’m a traitor to the cause.

Do we need our own food item for the pro-liberation left?
