Probably, I know the girlfriends fiesta is longer than my 90 and similar body widths, but fiesta wider including mirrors, the new minis are bigger still.

Reading the story... yeah blah blah blah he has a second home and has money... that's the crux of the story... green eyes monster-ism

He would pay council tax on all his homes though.... so maybe the "irate" resident might want to consider that; and while he's living in his other houses he'll still be paying council tax for services he's not using, thus a win win for the local community & council...

And maybe his house is more than a 5 minute walk from the shop? obviously the local resident was beamed to the shop by the SS Enterprise as opposed to walking out in public too Rolling Eyes Laughing Laughing

United Kingdom 2014 Defender 110 Puma 2.2 USW Aintree Green

Looking at the picture it looks like the Polzeath Spar shop which is just down the road from Rock where I assume ramsey has his home like the rest of the rich and famous round there.
Ok ramsey has parked longways instead of nose on like the ad hoc parking bays are but it isn't the height of the season and I doubt there is people jostling for a parking space.

TBH the "local" is probably more upset with the planning permission ramsey got for a £30K igloo in his garden last year. Laughing Also can be found on Fb, Ytube, Insta & Twitter @4WDSouthwest

First Jamie Oliver has one, now Gordon Ramsay. Think it might be time to sell mine and move on Rolling with laughter

Who the hell would want to be famous? I would more than likely get caught on camera picking my nose Laughing

They could be having a healthy discussion about whether the new Defender is a suitable replacement for the previous version
