that kitchen reminds me of the cafe royal in regent street in london ,one of londons poshest diners , in the 60s, i had the misfortune to have to deliver a new complete kitchen to the premises , unfortunately we had also to take the old kitchen cookers ranges etc to the tip , we even refused cups of tea when they were offered , as for eating there no thank you . i never came across a more disgusting working kitchen in my life, and that was one of londons poshest , i can just imagine some of the diners if they really knew how their food was cooked ,YUK

As I live and breathe-that bum fodder has "government property" stamped on it. That's the shiny stuff that used to leave a brown streak halfway up your back.

What the hell are you doing with a picture of THAT Gordon ? Shocked
