Pickle? As in pickled chutney, or as my punkahwallah used to call it, chatni? Still poncy, just a century older.

What sort of cheese? I bet it's some poncey posh stuff from the Oxford Cheese Company or the Jericho Cheese Company...

Raydale Yorkshire chutney to be precise.......

(There's a lovely quote in one of the Smiley books about the civil servant Oliver Lacon 'who always liked to nail an abiguity'.......pickle is such an ambiguous word)
