Quote of the Day

(After Sir Geoffrey Howe's resignation speech which brought down Mrs Thatcher)

"If that's what Denis Healey thinks being savaged by a dead sheep is like, I'll be giving any dead sheep in Leeds South-East a wide berth."

(Anonymous Tory politician. This is a reference to the fact that Healey, who was MP for that constituency, once described being criticised by Sir Geoffrey as like being savaged by a dead sheep.)
