Typical Mail story focussing more on the fact that the offender is (1) an immigrant and (2) housed by the local authority than the fact he is simply a common criminal.

John, your 1000th post is one decrying the Daily Heil.
I salute you with a tip of the hat.

Blimey. If I'd spotted it was going to be a milestone, I'd have made it more pithy.

I'm there near the bottom left in a slightly longer clip from the same video at:

I would rather have my wife's rings back than have these folks serving long sentences, but...

BBC also has the same videos, and a little less over-the-top coverage.

The day after Hedone we went to The Ledbury. The Ledbury is my favourite place to eat and this was another fantastic lunch.

We ate

Foie tartlets. Tiny and both delicate and rich, lightened with a little fruit. pictured elsewhere on the thread.

Saint-Nectaire Truffle Toast. This is such a good thing to eat.

Chantilly and Tartare of Cornish Oysters with Frozen Horseradish and Dill. I love oyster and this is great. We did share half a dozen oysters and a ginger pig sausage roll for breakfast too!

Roast Scottish Scallop with Lobster Puree, Grilled Leeks and Riesling. Possibly the largest scallop I have eaten. Cooked perfectly and tasted as good as it looked.

A Plate of Root Vegetables with Hazelnuts, Lardo di Colonatta and Roasting Juices. A simple-ish, tasty plate of seasonal good things. Not in focus - I blame the phone - sorry!

Sea Bass with Broccoli Stem, Crab and Black Quinoa

Mille-Feuille of Mango, Vanilla and Kaffir Lime


Blackcurrant and Vanilla Tart with Blackcurrant Leaf Ice Cream and another ofThinly Sliced Figs with Ewes Milk Yoghurt and Fig Leaf Ice Cream

I could go on about how good each plate was. I wont. It was all great. Service was great, food delicious and the wine (chosen by the sommelier) was perfect too.

I have eaten here a few times over the past twelve months. I cant wait to go back.

EDIT: My bad, didn't read it properly.

i was here on my birthday, and loved the meal. my girlfriend doesn't eat foie, and somehow that translated itself to no foie for either of us. but the dishes were lovely nonetheless. we split the wine pairings, and the wines were great too.
