Gordon Ramsay

The latest lucky recipient of the British Medias 'build 'em up high to then knock 'em down low' passion poor old Gordon Ramsay appears to be in free-fall. And we think this is just plain daft. In a food mad country Ramsay is our only internationally recognised Chef, the fayre in his restaurants is absolutely top notch (as anyone who has ever been will tell you) and his plain speaking on TV programmes remains one of the few reality checks left in our I-Can-Do-Anything-too society. And he can run Marathons. And he can kick a football really hard.
