Glass Houses And Gordon Ramsay

Gordon Ramsay and a carving knife. One is a large kitchen tool and one is just a large tool in the kitchen.
It was a very strange thing for the ill-mannered Scottish chef to attack the Australian TV female news presenter by questioning her sexuality, considering how he is the one with the caution for gross indecency in a public toilet.
Ramsay was arrested with two other male chefs in a toilet at London's Green Park Tube station in 1993 and cautioned for gross indecency. Oops. Was it a courgette in their pockets or were they just glad to see you Gordon?
On 5 June 2009, Ramsay started trading insults with Australia's Nine Networks journalist Tracy Grimshaw.
Ramsay questioned Grimshaw's sexuality and her looks saying a picture of a nude woman with multiple breasts on all fours with a pig's face resembled Grimshaw. Grimshaw hit back, calling him an "arrogant narcissist bully".
Very true Tracy, and yet he is so much more. Such as a lying, drink driving serial cheater who doesn't even cook his own food.

Lies: Ramsay makes much of being an 'ex-footballer'. He claims he was scouted whilst playing for Oxford United youth team although there is no record of Ramsay ever playing for Oxford United at any level. He also claims to have played twice for Rangers before a combination of injury and a premature release by first team coach, Archie Knox, put an end to a promising career. At the time, Knox was the manager Dundee. Ouch.

Drink driver: Ramsay was breathalysed, arrested and charged with driving under the influence of excess alcohol in London, 2002.

Serial cheater: Ramsay markets himself as a devoted family man but in 2008, the News of the World published details of a seven year affair between Ramsay and Sarah Symonds. Symonds then told of how Ramsay had been seeing other women behind his mistresses back as well.

Cheating Chef: It was recently revealed that Ramsay's restaurant, Foxtrot Oscar, used pre-prepared food that was heated up and sold with mark-ups of up to 586 per cent.

The sound of stones hitting his glass house must have been deafening which is probably why he issued a grovelling apology to the journalist, claiming it had been "blown out of context" and was "just a joke".
With the amount of skeletons rattling about in the Ramsay closet, he would do well to keep his big, obnoxious mouth shut. And stay out of tube stations toilets.

Apparently he is very human. I thought moderates and people from the left adovcated and admired people that throw out the mores and ideals of people from the right...

True Lucy, very true, but "arrogant narcissist bully" as a comeback? What happened to that famous Aussie wit? Not the best retort in history, I'm thinking.
