HP Sauce

Have your say

Afraid I must take an interest in the ‘did he or did he not ‘ debate on Harold Wilson and HP Sauce.

There are photos of Harold (or was it Mike Yarwood?) on the internet addressing some event involving Imperial Foods circa 1975 and in front of him is a table with rank after rank of bottles of the stuff drawn up like the Guards at Waterloo.

This isn’t conclusive of course – the imbibing of Wincarnis tonic wine was incorrectly attributed to ‘Yer Darling Harold’.

However, on the occasion of the airline flight to President Kennedy’s funeral that remarkable lady the Duchess of Devonshire noted Harold’s dirty fingernails which wouldn’t have gone down well on the ‘Masters Table’.

Yours with nothing better to do while they demolish the Castle Markets.
