You remember the one. It featured a load of hungry builders in the back of a van, singing the immortal lines, to the tune of ‘Que Sera Sera’, ‘will it be chips or jacket spuds/will it be salad or frozen peas/will it be mushrooms/fried onion rings/you’ll have to wait and see/hope it’s chips it’s chips/we hope it’s chips.’ Yes, what a great advert for McCain Oven Chips that was. except, in a baffling case of mass delusion, everyone’s now forgotten that the commercial was, in fact, for Steakhouse Grills, presumably on the basis that seeing as they were singing about chips, they must have been advertising chips.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
We’ve been absolutely fascinated by Inside The Commons over the last few weeks, and we think a couple of MPs from across the parties have come out of it rather well, aiming to use their platform to actually do some good for the people they represent, and one particular MP has not, not that we expected much else from them. Much of it has been devoted to chronicling the uneasy mix between the traditions of Westminster and modern day politics and that’s something expanded upon here as Julia Langdon, who’s been reporting from there for forty years, is joined by a number of distinguished guests to discuss how it’s in some ways better – including, as the title suggests, a little less sexism – and in some ways worse.
