Day 9 - 3.00pm

Gosh! Where to start? Well yesterdays lunch was Smoked potato and poached hen’s egg ravioli with pak choi, roast chicken jus and leek velouté followed by Slow cooked Dingley Dell pork belly with choucroute, roasted apple, black pudding and pommes dauphine, dessert was Orange tart, meringue, seasonal berries and yoghurt ice cream. Wine - a 1990 Château Léoville-Las-Cases.

After lunch we were on our way back to camp when Tarquin was arrested!! OMG! The charges are a bit vague but he was arrested by the anti-terrorist and supernatural inquiries department, apparently the candles and other things he ordered off the internet form the first half of a demon banishing spell, outlawed since 1923!! It didn't help that his iPad browsing history contained links to the Necrinomicon and various 'how to kill' pages. Am sure everything will be fine.

Jemima and I arrived back at camp to find that Sebastian has become the 'Leader of the Revolution'? Every protester here is now wearing at least one piece of yellow clothing and frequently refer to Sebastian as 'The King in Yellow'. I am not happy. My genuine python Prada boots have not arrived. *very miffed face*

Jemima has now worked out all the clues Munty Jack has given us and says she will tell all tomorrow, and to be prepared for an almost unbelievable revelation.


Yesterdays dinner was a rather subdued affair, just Jemima and myself. Pan-fried sea scallops from the Isle of Skye with heritage apples, fresh walnuts, celery and cider emulsion then Roasted fillet of Cornish turbot with coco beans, girolles, morteau sausage, fennel pollen and chicken jus, dessert was Bitter chocolate cylinder with coffee granité and ginger mousse. For the wine we chose a 1982 Château Cos d'Estournel St-Estèphe.

Far too upset to return to camp so a couple of rooms booked at a pleasant little hotel just outside Bath.

After breakfast (eggs benedict) we decided to visit the spa as the stress was becoming a little too much. Just returned to the camp feeling much better.


  1. Dear Revolution,

    It's gone awfully quiet. I was enjoying the letter perfect descriptions of Gordon Ramsay and Hector Blumenthal's culinary delights, and also the sheer blizzard of posh wines, which must have hammered your liver inside a week! If you are in hospital (or rehab), get better soon!

    Best wishes,

    "I came, I saw, I conquered!"

    Or as Revolution might said "Vino, Vino, Vino!"

    The Occupy TM* Queen Square has achieved its aim as Jemima said as day 1:

    "We will leave, on a victory, only when we have have achieved our ultimate goal...... get Frankie Cocozza out of the 2011 X Factor"

    Now he has gone from said capitalist show, the Occupation serves no purpose and Revolution has gone. Back perhaps to the day job of advising Silvio on his hair....

    ...mind you even that job might be shortlived.

    We lived a dream on this blog that things might be normal one day. And one day indeed it might.

    Long live the Chateau Margaux 1978 and all who gurgle her.


  3. Has anyone seen my BlackBerry, as no-one seems to be about??

    All my notes for the interview with Goldman Sachs are on that!!
