Maggie stirs up sweet support
Yummy! Tory leader Margaret Thatcher mixes a sweet recipe for success.
She stirred up support when she visited a famous sweet factory yesterday.
Mrs Thatcher asked one worker what was in a box, and he replied: “Gobstoppers. Would you care for one?”
Despite the sweet talk Mrs Thatcher promised the workers that she would give Labour something to chew over at a local by-election next week.
During her tour of the constituency at Pontefract, Yorks, Mrs Thatcher tried all sorts of sweets from Wilkinson's factory. She joked: “If I stay much longer I will put on weight.”
