As this website becomes more widely known and as the latest Gulf War drags on, more and more very pertinent questions are being asked by a whole host of different sections of society.

This has caused even more panicking amongst the local left wing "PC Fascist" as they continue to attempt to stifle any debates that don't suit them.
( So what else is new ?! )
It has been with great sadness on my part, to find that these dictatorial extremists have gained a foothold in one of my long time favourite watering holes, the Portobello Gold.
This culminated today ( Tuesday 28th October 2003 ) with me being barred from the above public house !
I had been a trouble free customer at The Portobello Gold for many year !
I have been branded a Nazi !

Anti Racist Hitler
In this part of town a Nazi is the same as a Racist, that is, ANYONE who does not agree with the dictates of the local "PC Fascists".
Or ANYONE who is winning an argument with a Labour supporter.
In fact ANYONE who asks embarrassing questions, or points to embarrassing facts !
Do not forget that I have not been banned because of anything that I have said to anyone in the Portobello Gold, either staff or customers ( I have never been a Political Missionary )
Not because of any sort of wrongful behavior on my part, but purely because of the things that I have highlighted on this website.

On My Supposedly Being A Nazi ?
I have placed one of my favorite quotes below, as it sums thing up very nicely.
It's by Simon Heffer of the Daily Mail.
"This is, in theory still a free country, but our politically correct, censorious times are such that many of us tremble to give vent to perfectly acceptable views for fear of condemnation.
Freedom of speech is thereby imperiled, big questions go undebated, and great lies become accepted, unequivocally as great truths."-

Portobello Gold - Locations
Notting Hill and Portobello Road in particular is one of the most famous media locations in London.
Portobello Gold is situated right in the heart of the Portobello Antiques market which only runs on Saturdays. As opposed to the fruit and veg market further down the street, the Antiques block is the quietest part of the whole road, with no through traffic and mainly pedestrians.
Over the years, the following features have proven to be the most popular:
1. Our tropical conservatory with sliding glass roof, offers plenty of light on a winter’s day. The (Kentia) palms, weeping figs and Yukkas are 20 years old and are very photogenic. As the bar operates as an Internet Café during the daytime, it is reasonably quiet in the weekday. Crews can be fed and watered in this area throughout the day.
2. Our roof terrace is a great favourite and was chosen by Working Title for roof top scenes in 'Notting Hill'. There is a pleasant view of St Peters Church to the rear, Kensal Rise four miles to the North and a perfect panorama of the whole of the Portobello Road Antiques market (on Saturdays only). The 900 sq ft space is not overlooked and access is straight out of our hotel apartment (no clambering up ladders).
Other popular facilities include:
Unlimited use of broadband Internet access via wireless and laptop sockets is available throughout the building. There is also an Internet café on the ground floor.
Our seven hotel rooms (all with direct outside lines and digital cable TV), can double as dressing rooms.
Our kitchen and bar can cater for units of up to 70 people (usually from 8am)
Parking is exceptionally good for London – except Saturdays. There are pay and display and single yellow lines and, with the market only on Saturdays, very little traffic.

The object of any confidence trick is to create a sense of doubt about the obvious.
When I went to school to say 2 X 3 was the same as saying 3 X 2, that's arithmetic not race. Also when I went to school, to say you wanted more of something was the same as saying you wanted less of something else, that's arithmetic not race. To say you want more ethnic diversity, is exactly the same as saying you want less of the ethnicity that you already have. That's race, NOT arithmetic. I am very offended that I, and others of my ethnicity, "British White/Caucasian" are under constant pressure via the Media and the Judiciary, to accept that LESS OF US, is better for everyone.In fact, for us, it is now more or less a crime, not to agree with this !? Am I a Racist ? Absolutely not ! I want more "ethnic minorities" every bit as much as they want more of "me"
How much is that ?
Our venue in The Chilterns is in an unrivalled position conveniently located (to Central London) and offers a superb empty period barn with minstrels gallery, lan dscaped rock pool and outstanding views. Britwell HIll has been a favourite of discerning Location Managers for decades.

The Portobello Gold welcomed me recently when I stayed in the hotel. Their staff were outstandingly friendly and the wireless network was handy when I had business to do (while drinking a pint!). The selection of beers was surprising - czech, german, belgian and more and my friends loved the wine list, which I think was put together by the owners wife who had been a somelier in France for 15 years. I loved it!! I definitely recommend it, even though I would prefer to keep it a secret - it looks unappealing from the front.

In the heart of the Antiques Market, Portobello Gold was London's first gastropub and celebrates its 20th birthday in Jan 2005.

It is renowned as being the spiritual home of the oyster shooter. They also have seven rooms from a backpackers at £25 up to a rooftop apartment with sunny views at £180.

Catering for private parties of up to 60 guests is available upon request and seating in the garden area is provided, weather permitting. They also provide Internet access.
Portobello Gold Oyster Bar serve a wide selection of beers, wines, spirits and cocktails. They have a Happy Hour between 5.30pm and 7pm every day of the week except Sunday.
Portobello Gold - The Gallery
The Gold Gallery showcases a new photographic or art exhibition every month. Whilst the most prolific art form here comes from a wealth of excellent photographers, we embrace all forms of art including paintings, artefacts and even African barber signs! It all adds to the diversity that the Portobello Gold is famous for.
Exhibit in our Gallery
The point as far as the Gold is concerned, is not to be a profit centre, but to give exposure to up and coming artists and photgraphers and to vary the feel of the place and to introduce new customers to the restaurant and bar in the process. We suggest a 10% commission be offered DIRECTLY to the staff by way of incentive and so it is important that they are au fait with your work.
To maximise exposure of your work it is essential to make the most of the preview. We have in the past, left publicity to the artist and it hasn't always prompted the interest deserved.
Why Portobello Gold?
Portobello Gold has been a popular place to eat and drink since 1985 and, to many people, needs no introduction. Bearing in mind that 700-1000 a week pass through the Gold, what small gallery can offer that sort of attendance? Your show will run for one month and it is a good idea to be around at crucial times. It is up to you to replenish brochures. Don't assume, however, that we will have the time to spend with your customers - but our staff are trained to give as much help as possible.
To stage a preview we charge £300.00 to include the following:
1) Cost price catering (24 bottles of wine and a buffet for 100 people)
2) Small administration fee to set up the preview
3) Help with the publicity (access to our ever increasing mailing list)
4) Space on our website
5) Mail-out to "Listings" services for up to 150 people
1) Printing and framing (if applicable)
2) Invitations, brochures, flyers, price lists/fact sheets
3) Press releases
4) Door security
5) Photographer to cover the event
