Welsh cakes all round

Harry has a posting on Crooked Timber about Welsh cakes, complete with the recipe.

This reminds me of one of my favourite parliamentary by-elections: Brecon & Radnor in 1985. I spent polling day in Cwmtwrch-isaf. The polling station was at the local community centre and tellers from all the parties were provided with a table and chair. There was also free tea and Welsh cakes for all comers. No doubt this was against all sorts of electoral laws, but it did make things more enjoyable.

Incidentally, I travelled down to Brecon with the Liberals' East Midlands regional agent, a young man by the name of Chris Rennard. Does anyone know what happened to him?
