Thatcher shouted down by students
Secretary for Education, Mrs Margaret Thatcher, was shouted down by a group of students when she went to Enfield College of Technology in London yesterday to open a £300,000 tutorial block.
The opening ceremony had to be abandoned after a few minutes.
Mrs Thatcher was unable to make herself heard above the noise of forty chanting students, who had gatecrashed the main hall of the Roberts Building.
The students said that money spent on the opening ceremony would have been better spent on books for the library.
