I believe peas, diced carrots, diced potato and green beans, maybe a bit of onion m'lud, in a sauce of sorts. Guaranteed to look the same if vomited up but a product from an age when people didn't have fridges and shopped once a week.

Aye, more or less. It's a classic nostalgia thing. You could only think of it fondly if you hadn't been within a hound's gowl of it for ten plus years.

I last saw a tin of it on the way to the All-Ireland final in 1986. Even at 6 and 7 meself and our boy were having none of it.

So, which specific vegetables are included? That lot look a bit less than inspiring.
It's just a macedoine des legumes with cheap mayonnaise substitute, isn't it?

Ugh.
Peas, carrots, spuds, indeterminate white roots, plus a dollop of industrial Mayonaise and splittered gherkins. It's big in Ossi-states, CZ and PL, and great with smoked sausage for a picnic.

Quite deliziozo, albeit not pretty.

I'll take your word for it. I prefer my Piemontaise from Carrefour.

Similarly, I occasionally have a hankering for those tinned Plumrose cocktail sausages that were a junior version of their hot dogs. However, I think they too have passed.
Not in France.

Cheers, Malc! :D

Right, one for Carrefour or maybe the Casino equivalent next time I'm in Paris. Along with the washing-up liquid my sister likes.

Which'll be post Brexit, so I probably won't be able to bring back so many alcoholic specialities.

I once had some Russian salad in a tapas bar near Placa de Catalunya near the top of La Rambla in Barcelona. It was Yummy McMummy, and a real blast from ye past.

I know it's not in the Heil (that I know of, anyway) but this definately qualifies for this thread...
Councillor Bob Frost suspended over Liverpool abortion clinic slur

A Conservative councillor has resigned from the party in Kent following controversial Twitter posts about abortion clinics and slavery.

Dover District councillor Bob Frost tweeted the remarks to a prospective parliamentary Labour candidate.

He said abortion clinics in Liverpool were a form of "crime prevention", and joked that he had "bought two of the staff" from the city's slavery museum.

His move follows a decision by the local party to suspend him.

Only a person with the intelligence of a salt-encrusted slug would find his remarks even remotely funny
