nandos admits that it uses McCain chips. Ffs how hard is it to make proper chips. They deserve to go the way of the toy shop and Maplin 

Stuffing one's face with junk food appears to be the only activity on the British high street nowadays. 

Or getting payday loans, tattoos or painted nails...

I may have brought this up before. 

I assume all these places that advertise "hand cut chips" actually buy them en masse from producers that can call them this due to some vague "handled" process as part of their production ?

Run by a person and not a franchise manual?

Yep, this was back in the day before we had all these chains and franchises. The cafe was in the local theatre/ pavilion and was, I think, rented from the council. 

Great fun we had.... one of the ones was that they used to get quite big bands for dances.  We would put our posh togs on under our work clothes (it was one of those thin nylon type coats).  We used to go in to collect glasses, take the coat thing off and have a dance.

I've never been in a Nandos, as they sound shit, but this isn't that shocking really, many of us buy Mccain chips when we can get the exact same thing in Tesco packaging for half the price.

Don't eat oven chips.  Chip shop chips for a treat now and then is fun, though.

[best if cooked in lard, but that's a rarity these days]

It's not aimed at you.

It is targetted at under 18's that like to meet their mates somewhere and over 18's who can't afford to go to the pub.

It is more of a social place than a restaurant.

They cooked chips in lard on the Back in time for tea on last night. 1970s. Lovely program.

There will be somewhere in the US that cooks steaks in a deep fat frier, it’s inevitable!

When I was in Saudi Arabia I went to an American Xmas Dinner and they were deep frying the turkey in peanut oil. on an outside gas hob

      Turning Point, now in the UK.
      Fresh out the packet but smells a bit dodgy already. 
      Basically just another controlled opposition attempt, but so very obvious this time. 
      ^ 30 minutes long, no need to look at the screen, just listen. 
       
      Here’s a shorter video (~6 mins) on the same subject, it’s not as good though:
       
      Hilariously shite this attempt at astroturfing, the other side are struggling.

      The new live drill, which will take place on September 18, has been named Exercise Socrates 2 – and will rehearse the region’s hospitals and emergency services for a situation where patients need everything from burns treatment to psychological support.

      Ok, many of you did not believe me when I said Tommy Robinson is controlled opposition, or when I said the same of Anne Marie Waters, here's a video looking at the Football Lads Alliance (FLA) though :
      It does start to become pretty obvious when you take the blinkers off, lots of other things start making sense then too.
