Drewan Baird. Oudtshoorn. 13 April 2013. 15h00. Said Denis Thatcher, husband of (former, now deceased) Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, on one occasion:
I was at the 14th hole at Sandwich, looked at me watch and thought, “Bugger me, things are a bit tight.”
I then jumped in the car and went like a bat out of Hades up the A20. I got to Number 10, took the stairs three at a time, did me ablutions, changed into me Sunday best, and got to the bash only two minutes late. And still got a bloody bollocking!
Recounted in Peter tory’s Diary in the the Daily Star (4 June 1985), giving the impression that he had been told the story by Thatcher himself.
