Well done Jack! You’re going Global!
This is just brilliant Jack, I am so glad you’re gaining an international presence particularly in the US – our benefits system and even employment laws are lavish by comparison.
You’d think, but those liberals at the IMF rank the UK’s unemployment benefits provision 46th in the world and the US’ the 31st: http://euwelfarestates.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/world-ranking-in-unemployment-benefit.html. (Whilst I think that’s terrible, IDS et al probably think this shows there’s more to do!!!).
Anyway, I digress, congratulations Jack!!!
Brilliant so sick of celebrity chefs with there supposed cheap meals you are the real deal in my eyes. Keep it up
A brilliant article, Jack. I’m hoping the government is shamed as your words spread.
Will you still talk to us when you’re a global megastar? 🙂
They should just give you your own cooking show, it would be more interesting and far more useful than a lit of the celeb chef shows are.
yes, I agree – a cooking programme would be ace and very watchable
Well done Jack, you should be very proud of what you are achieving. Lovely photo as well.
We’re listening here across the pond too. I work for a food security non-profit in Ottawa and over the past 2 years we have seen rapidly increasing numbers of families accessing food banks in Ontario for the first time.
Congrats on the MacLean’s article, I’ll be sharing it.
Yeah great article and another awesome pic
Dear Jack great article and I totally agree with the others you should have your own cookery programme and spread the word.Thank you for your inspirational blogs and I will be donating to my local food bank in Eastbourne and I will be getting your book too.
