'kin idiots.

What next? A ban on french fries? Yorkshire puddings? French polish (ooh! - two in one go!)?

Let's see common sense prevail and bring back elderflower champagne.

Utter chods!

They think it's the same as 'Wensleydale' or 'Champagne'!! They truly are thick as fcuk this lot aren't they? If the dish had been called a 'Birmingham', they might be in with a chance, but not facking Balti! The immigrants had an opportunity in the 70's to copyright the name, but not the council 40 years later as the name is not location specific, and nor is the bl00dy pan it's cooked in!

The bid could mean a ban for restaurants outside Birmingham's "Balti Triangle" from serving a Balti.
By the same logic, should we ban the manufacture, sale and distribution of Yorkshire puddings outside of Yorkshire?
Yes, and to enforce it we should cut around Yorkshire and float it out to the middle of the North Sea.

Balti is the name for a one-pot Pakistani style of curry that is very popular in Britain. Balti food first appeared in the UK in 1977 when immigrants from northern Pakistan settled in the Sparkhill area of Birmingham. They had come from the Potohar area of Pakistan's Kashmir, and specifically the city of Mirpur.

I can see "-style" being biro'd on after the usual 47 varieties of "Balti" in curry shops up and down the land. Will put a pint of Luke warm Carling up a full shilling!

They shall not pass, it is better to die on your feet than live in Staines!

Quite right too. Though I feel an exception should be granted to the Curry house at Akrotiti, as he's from the Ladypool Road anyway :D

Stop grimfing and treat yourselves to an excellent Balti in Brum, with Nans as big as Duvets and big portions for a Fiver.

As it's the Naafi Bar...

Fcuk you all

Love and kisses

Dunno, but as the second most visited city in the country after London maybe some people like it.

Maybe it's the Balti.
