The bullshit of Clarke Gayford

That’s not almond milk dear…

Clarke Gayford has said more to the media in 6 weeks than Peter Davis ever did in nine years of his wife’s draconian rule of New Zealand.

One of the things he said, in between moaning about how people are being mean to Cindy, was that she once got up to make him almond milk.

Jacinda is someone who so constantly thinks of others that she once woke in the middle of the night worried I was out of milk for my morning cup of tea.

So she got up and decided to soak some almonds at 2am, just to make me almond milk at dawn.

It was the best cup of tea I’ve ever had, and I hate almond milk.

Yeah, bullshit. For a start who keeps almonds lying around just waiting to be made into hippy almond milk?

Secondly…that wouldn’t have worked. All the recipes I can find about almond milk say the almonds should be soaked for two days!

  1. Soak the almonds overnight or up to 2 days. Place the almonds in a bowl and cover with about an inch of water. They will plump as they absorb water. Let stand on the counter, covered with a cloth, overnight, or refrigerate for up to 2 days. The longer the almonds soak, the creamier the almond milk.

So, does Jacinda keep pre-soaked almonds in her fridge?

Are there no dairies, servos or supermarkets in Pt Chev?

Surely it would have been quicker to cycle, or even walk to get some milk so poor little snowflake Clarke could have milky tea?

These two, Clarke and Cindy, are the fakest of fake…and soft to boot.
