No more curious crockery: We want plates

A Twitter campaign is mocking the trend for serving meals on bizarre objects! What ever happened to a good old fashioned ceramic plate?

Ross McGinnes is taking a stand. The UK's experimentation with serving vessels has gone too far, and he's demanding a return to the good old-fashioned plate with his hilarious Twitter account, @WeWantPlates

From seafood in a skip to chips in a miniature shopping trolly, here are the meals to have you screaming WE WANT PLATES!
