Gordon Ramsay's restaurant video featuring Rishi Sunak puts PR to the menu

Saturday, February 20, 2021

Rishi is facing a backlash after he sought advice from multi-millionaire superstar Gordon Ramsay.

In a tweet that accompanied the video, Rishi told Sunak that Ramsay will explain the hospitality challenges and what prompted him to start a TV show in lockdown.

First, as tangential as Ramsay has become to the world he once represented, hospitality was the subject of Sunak's first "talking to" about the future of English business.

Kate Nichollos, from UK Hospitality, said: "The support provided by the Chancellor over the past year has been instrumental in absorbing the worst of the damage and helping many more businesses survive.

The Chancellor, who was told exactly what restaurants and pubs are demanding from his Budget, said he was optimistic that the hospitality sector will "revive" with the economy reopened.
