Margaret Thatcher on Yes, Minister
Yes, Minister is an excellent show. Real prime ministers are not sitcom writers or actors. What happens when you put the two together? Margaret Thatcher’s poor attempt at trying to appear approachable on what is said to have been her favorite show. Fortunately, the following sketch was never part of a real Yes, Minister episode.
After the jump is a sketch done for Comic Relief that has Minister Jim Hacker asking the British public to donate money.
