The news that Yasser Arafat was poisoned with polonium should not come as a surprise for those who know what his favourite restaurant was.

My political science professor actually met Arafat back in the ’70s. Seriously though, was his favorite restaurant really a Polish one? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Polish restaurant before, though pirogue and kielbasa can be found fairly easily in the US.
Ha ha, anyone who eats there might find their teeth working loose… I am allegedly joking…
There are plenty of foreign restaurants in the UK, it would be easier to list the countries that aren’t represented.
I went into an Italian restaurant in London once and asked the manager in Italian what was recommended that evening, I found out that he was the owner and was a gay Turk, the chef was Scottish and they were sexual partners. Neither of them spoke Italian.
9/10 for the food though and I have been back quite a few times.
How cosmopolitan is that!
I’ve read that the Israelis say that this thesis has more whole than a Swiss cheese!
It makes total sense!
