The judge told Redhead: "The bogus email makes it a particularly serious aggravating feature relating to the fact that you were instrumental in deceiving the public about food during a period of time there is considerable public concern about the origin and correct identification of food products.

I personally don't see what the problem is. When I was in the RN the chefs often deceived us about the origin and correct identification of food products :)

And he sent an email. Didn't know the buggers could write let alone cook. And why ex-Royal Navy? Why not just 'Some crooked businessman conned Iceland?" Unless being ex-navy gets an extra 7 days number 9s. :cool:

I think it is because he is an e-chef he should know about food, hence bigger the con, little do these civies know about our food spoilers?
 
I once asked a chief chef what was for lunch; 'Stamshaw chicken'. I was happy with that but curiosity got the better of me so I made further enquiries. I mention this as evidence that chefs are trained to lie and we love them for it.
For those not too familiar with Pompey, Stamshaw is an area with a large tip so flocks of seagulls were always wheeling overhead: ergo a stamshaw chicken was a shitehawk!
 
Shitehawk roasted was a speciality of Scapa in the second world war, and is called oosh. I'm told it looks like chicken and tastes of fish, similar to penguin!

At the time of the Normandy Seagull advert all avian fare was called "Norman"

Norman - Chicken
Festive Norman - Turkey
Aquatic Norman - Duck
