Forget Brexit, let’s argue about chicken!

Gerry knows that this is silly season, but some members of the Twittosphere seemed to have got extremely bored. Dawn Butler, the Labour Shadow Cabinet member, has critisiced Jamie Oliver for his apparent cultural appropriation over jerk rice. Butler said:

‘I’m just wondering do you know what Jamaican jerk actually is? It’s not just a word you put before stuff to sell products. Levi Roots should  do a masterclass. Your jerk rice is not OK. This appropriation from Jamaica needs to stop.’

Deputy Tory Party Chairman James Cleverly also seems to have finished watching Nordic-noir series on Netflix and has had an argument with Butler about the many things that this country has taken from other cultures, a ‘defining feature of British culture.’

Gerry wonders if they could stop bickering for just one day…
