GORDON RAMSAY has probably just won a legion of fucking fans by openly backing Brexit and has said that Britain’s vote to leave the EU will “shake Britain out of laziness” and added that the end to the “influx” of migrants will give homegrown talent a chance to shine.
His arch-nemesis, Jamie Oliver – campaigned for Remain and blamed the closure of six of his Italian restaurants on the uncertainty that followed the Brexit vote, Ramsay said it could have a POSITIVE effect on the restaurant industry.
Ramsay said that “If anything, it’s a big kick up the a— for the industry, and it’s going to get back to the modern-day apprenticeship. So not only do I welcome that kind of change, but I think it’s going to put a lot more emphasis on homegrown talent, which I think we need to do.”
A curb on EU migrant labour will create opportunities for British workers, he told the Radio Times.
“That level of influx of multinational workers in this country has sort of confirmed how lazy as a nation we are – when individuals from across the seas are prepared to come and work twice as hard for less money,” he said.
Ramsay also attacked Jamie Oliver’s backing of a sugar tax “It’s all very well to spout off now about sugar tax and supermarkets, None of that was spoken about when he was label-slapping with Sainsbury’s for 10 years,” he said, referring to Oliver’s £10m 10 year stint as the face of the Sainsburys.
“Sadly, the only time he opens his mouth is when he’s got something to promote,” Ramsay added.
Ramsay, whos new show on ITV explores the cocaine trade, He said teenagers should be taught about the realities of cocaine, explaining that he sat his children down and showed them how the drug is often cut with cement powder or battery acid.
It “scared the life out of them”, he said, but he believes children should be given drugs education in the same way that they receive sex education.
Ramsay also talked about the best unkept secret in London and revealed that cocaine is rife in the restaurant industry, recalling an occasion last Christmas when a customer asked for a side plate to be changed because he had used it to snort Charlie in the bathroom.
A un-named chef at a celebrity book launch pressed a foil wrap of cocaine into his palm during a handshake, Ramsay claimed.
On another occasion, he cooked for a dinner party – the hosts had successfully bid for his services in a charity auction – and was asked to dust the souffles with cocaine mixed into the icing sugar. He declined.
