Summary of Evening Post article under headline BALLROOM TRUCE
MT described her first meeting with her Labour opponent, Norman Dodds, at a ball in Dartford. Introduced on the ballroom floor, Dodds insisted she choose the dance and the tune. "I chose a tango, which is my favourite dance," said MT, "and the tune—‘Jealousy.’"
She added: "It turned out to be an exhibition dance: everyone left the floor to watch us!"
