    Of course it's a spoof. Only 3 hours ago I wrote on Twitter that I was beginning to think that Michael Fabricant tramping across Birmingham was almost as epic as Liz Truss going to Beijing to open up new pork markets.

    I can imagine many spoof campaigns being started, and one or two among them, quite surprisingly, turning genuine.

    Evening all :)

    As usual, late to the debate because I have a life.

    The best burgers I've ever had have not been in the UK - Mrs Stodge and I sampled Five Guys at Bluewater at the weekend. The bacon cheese burger was a decent effort for the money but only that. Indeed Mrs Stodge wasn't that happy with the patty though the milkshakes were top notch.

    For quality burgers, one has to go much further afield. Red Robin in the US is superb and we've twice enjoyed an outdoor evening dining experience in Palm Springs - cur The Killers soundtrack.

    The best burger I've ever heard was from Burgerfuel, a NZ chain, by the shores of Lake Taupo. They don't yet have a presence in the UK but IF they come they will be huge.

    Another food chain which needs to come to the UK is the Cheesecake Factory.

    I was with you until you said the Cheesecake Factory.....I remember first going to the one in central Chicago 15 years ago and it was very good, however like so many of these chains they have now expanded rapidly and notorious in the US for dodgy customer service.

    That been said, I am surprised they haven't come to the UK though. Although maybe they got cold feet after the likes of Cinnabon failed miserably.

    Dairy Queen is another US chain I am surprised nobody has tried here.

    Burgerfuel and Cheesecake Factory are both huge franchised brands in the Middle East, queues outside their mall restaurants all the time, food is okay but nothing really special.

    I have to say I am always really surprised that Krispy Kreme has got a foothold in the UK market. They are not only piss poor doughnuts, they are bloody expensive for what they are.

    But then, once you have had Voodoo Doughnuts (from Portland), everything is downhill from there.

    My first experience of the Cheesecake Factory was in Honolulu and I've also eaten in their branches in San Francisco and Las Vegas so possibly atypical but always found them very good.

    Their offshoot is the Grand Lux Café which is in The Venetian and is a 24-hour establishment. We once flew in from London and were staying in the Palazzo. The flight was long and we fell asleep in the hotel without unpacking waking at 2.30am starving. I remembered the Grand Lux and after sorting ourselves out we got there at 3am.

    I walked up to the Host and said "table for two" and he looked me up and down and said "no problem, sir, which menu would you like ?" That stopped me dead in my tracks until he asked if we wanted the Breakfast menu or the Dinner menu.

    That presented me with a poser - which is the correct option at 3am - breakfast or dinner ? Mrs Stodge went for dinner, I went for breakfast. After that, it was a morning walk down the Strip - delightful.

    I wouldn't know but it's always been my experience a restaurant chain is best on its home territory and better still closest to its point of origin.

    I know there's a Bubba Gump in London but I've tried it in Los Angeles and Vegas and fear it will be a watered down version (in almost every sense). Perhaps your experiences of Burgerfuel and Chhesecake Factory reflect the franchising option.

    Going to the Cheesecake Factory for a meal is fine. Yeah, it’s a little ostentatious and the dome on top of the restaurant always seemed a little out of place, and OK, the menu is ridiculously long and needlessly complicated. But it’s OK, because the food is good enough. And sometimes, that’s enough of a reason to patronize a chain restaurant if your creative juices have been consumed by your hunger pains.

    Twitter user @MaxKriegerVG, though, believes we need a true breakdown of the Cheesecake Factory’s exterior and interior architecture choices, the menu’s obtuseness, and what the restaurant thinks you should experience. And thank goodness for Krieger, because he’s woken us up to this reality.

    The Cheesecake Factory is a goddamn nightmare.

    If it is gambling you are after, there are a few bookies in town with fixed odds machines you can play.

    To be honest, that's true of every High Street in this country, including East Ham.

    This is why I do my gambling in Vegas.

    Perhaps it's this which will bring TMay down. Millions of adults will suddenly find themselves having to self-identify as porn uses or learn how to use VPNs.

    I saw a survey that said 54% of people thought the law was a bad idea; that's more than voted for Brexit.

    I'm not pro-porn, but the simple reality is that Pandora's Box has been opened, and everyone has had a good look, and TMay thinks she can just shut it again.

    All it’s going to do is teach every teenage boy in the country about VPNs, DNS and proxy servers, so in the future everything everyone does online will be encrypted in a way that the government can’t look at it - and the next generation will just think it’s normal.

    Massive law of unintended consequences, the genie is already way outside the bottle.
    A VPN may make it more difficult for the government to see what you have viewed but Pornhub will still have your data on record as a requirement of accessing the site

    A VPN will make it look like you are in another country, so porn sites won't be asking for your details in the first place.

    Those that get in serious trouble in China over VPNs are to do with selling "unlicensed services" in which they have lied to the state about what their business is really doing i.e. they didn't pay off the right Chinese official.

    Use of sanctioned VPNs is widespread within Chinese businesses and it is very easy for ex-pats to get access to a service.

    As I said, he was selling the service, an unlicensed one....not using a service. Chinese business wouldn't function without the licensed VPNs.

    Its completely bonkers. Coventry isn't far from Wolverhampton. He could even train some of the time with Wolves and play for Coventry. Instead they are going to relocate him over the other side of the country to play at the same standard of football. I bet the player is well pleased.

    Head desk bang...just admit you post something that was factually incorrect, it isn't hard, nobody will think any less of you.

    Also the reality of the situation in China is that anybody who really wants a VPN can get one and as it isn't illegal won't be going to jail. The issue seems to be more than from time to time the government will block one service or another / slow it right down, so most people have to subscribe to 2-3 to ensure they always have an internet connection (which for many normal Chinese people is a lot of money and not worth it).

    If we're continuing the fast food discussion can I put a word in for the PoundBakery.

    You can get two, that's two, pasties or pies for either a quid or £1.30 and they're pretty damn good as well.

    Is known as UKIP membership list.

    I don't think any of us have a high opinion on Williamson but why should anyone care about this.

    Aren't politicians all assumed to be b******s in any case ?
    In the post Harvey Weinstein/MeToo era any bloke trying it on with a subordinate is going to be held to a higher standard.

    It appears Mr Williamson was economical with the truth about his departure.
    In this era, sexual intercourse between men and women is viewed with suspicion.

    But it is hard to know who they really are, as everybody lies on their membership forms.

    Kinda of like Greggs, before they went mass market :-)

    Apparently Gregg is offering valentines dinners in select locations. I somehow feel Mrs Urquhart might not be best pleased if I booked a table for 2....

    He was selling the service which was banned from being used. Licensed VPNs only get a license for a reason ie they are not to be used for non state approved activities

    You said you can be jailed in China for using a VPN...that is fake news, there is no law against it. Read the link, with the original Chinese government text.

    You linked to a case of somebody running an unlicensed business which was lying to the government and got jailed for it.

    That isn't an individual using a VPN for personal use.
    If you sell an unlicensed VPN you can be jailed and use of unlicensed VPNs is banned
    Head desk bang...just admit you post something that was factually incorrect, it isn't hard, nobody will think any less of you.

    Also the reality of the situation in China is that anybody who really wants a VPN can get one and as it isn't illegal won't be going to jail. The issue seems to be more than from time to time the government will block one service or another / slow it right down, so most people have to subscribe to 2-3 to ensure they always have an internet connection (which for many normal Chinese people is a lot of money and not worth it).
    As the article makes quite clear selling a VPN service without a license has a jail sentence and as it also makes clear usage of an unlicensed VPN can have at a minimum a fine of around 15000 Yuan

    Any usage of a VPN without a government license in China is illegal. End of.
