I find it really sad an MP can get up set about jerk rice! Especially in this new multi cultural shared society we live in.

August is known in the press as the silly season (or should I say seasoning) because there are no real news stories due to holidays. I think we can file this under that category.

I would have thought Dawn Butler would have bigger things to worry about like the rise in violent crime which "Mayor Can't" doesn't seen to be able to get to grips with.

If we want to go down the road of cultural appropriation there are plenty of things that people from her culture have appropriated from the west, clothing, hairstyles to name a few. But of course that is a one way street in her world view.

As someone once said cultural appropriation is where you do not give credit to the origin of something implying you came up with it. I don't think Jamie has done that here because he's called it Jerk Rice it may not be the correct recipe but it a nod to the roots.

Jamie Oliver is a massive bellend. He goes on about sugar and so the government introduces a sugar tax for no other reason than to penalise the poor. He now wants to end bogof offers on takeaway pizzas (which are massively marked up compared to their cost to make anyway) in a bid to save the children. Oh and his own kids have stupid names like Turnip and his wife looks like she’s a bore in the sack. 0.5/10

She is from Trinidad and has clearly appropriated Jamaican cuisine.

My doctor friend gave me an article from the BMJ. The manufacturers have known about dangers of sugar since the 1950s and like "Big Tobacco" have hidden it. I don't understand why people go against Jamie. We have a massive health crisis in this country and he is trying to do something about it.

Pre war there was no obesity and yes whilst some people did not get enough food the main reason was that people cooked from raw ingredients. During the fifties TV dinners arrived with their pre loaded salt and sugar and guess what that's when our problems started.

His restaurants dont just serve "healthy" food. So Pizzas are bad for you? What does he serve in Jaime Italian? Can't stand the bloke and am still waiting for him to carry out his threat/promise of leaving the UK if we voted for Brexit.
Having said that the MP is jumping on a bandwagon and should have more pressing issues to worry about

That's a well seasoned response.

Dawn Butler's contribution to switching media attention away from ongoing furore regarding Jezza's weak leadership and handling of anti-semitism. Jerk seasoning is clearly the burning subject of conversation in Dawn Butler's constituency = NOT! She is only succeeding in showing herself up to be another political buffoon.
