Cabinet papers reveal Thatcher 'hoarded' biscuits

Her unsavoury management of meetings included yawning during AOB, drawing unfeasibly large penises all over the Minutes and she was once caught re-editing Hillsborough reports with the melted end of a chocolate hobnob.

Cabinet papers show that Geoffrey Howe was frequently bullied and forced to sit wearing only his underwear, every time there was a pit closure. While regular agenda items included hiding Michael Heseltine's pen, laughing at northerners and something obliquely referred to 'Cecil and the soggy biscuit game'.
