During the Falkland war the English troops nicknamed the members of the local population 'Bennys' after a character from the English soap Crossroads, famous for his wooly hat and limited intelligence.
This was considered politically uncorrect and the solders were ordered to stop and that the population were not Bennys.
Henceforth the Falkland Islanders were refered to by the solders as 'Not Bennys'
Hey, corperal ask that Not Benny the way to Goose Green.
Historically, the pies were made from scraps of beef and vegetables, leftovers or from the local markets, under a pastry crust. The mashed potatoes were liberally covered in parsley gravy or "liquor". There has been a great revival in these dishes and quite a number of Pie ‘n’ Mash restaurants can now be found across London.
Traditional foods in London include pie 'n' mash and jellied eels.
