Houses of Parliament- it's an English thing, there was a big fuss earlier this year when a Dutch company (Unilever?) bought it out.
Strange spicy/vinegary thing, a bit like your A1 Steak Sauce. It's a hangover from those old English spicy gentleman's relishes like Patum Peperium or Worcestershire Sauce
Label says- malt vinegar, sugar, dates, apple, tomato paste, salt, corn starch, molasses, spices, caramel, colour, natural flavourings. Hmm, I seem to remember it had tamarind in it too.
In England they have bastardised it into a generic thing called "brown sauce".
