TV Fact #260 – July 11th, 2015:

The satirical British sitcom “Yes Minister” (1980-1984) and it’s sequel series “Yes, Prime Minister” (1986-1988) was quite popular, even with politicians. In fact, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (as she then was), a great fan of the series, wrote a sketch for the show with press secretary Bernard Ingham which was recorded and aired as part of the 1984 National Viewers and Listeners Awards. The sketch featured actors Paul Eddington and Nigel Hawthorne, both of whom are talking to the Prime Minister (played by Thatcher herself) about her notion to abolish economists. So none can say the Iron Lady didn’t have a sense of humor.
