Introduction

A zany political adventure where you take the role of Denis Thatcher striving to overcome insurmountable oods to escape from the political jungle.

Playing Instructions

Don't just stand there reading the cassette box. Get stuck into Ken Livingstone, Norman Nebbitt, Mary Whitehouse and all those others from the political jungle. Okay, so doing what you want with Tony Benn doesn't get you through to the next stage of the game, but it makes you feel better, doesn't it?

Your objective is to avoid Maggie, overcome all the horrors you meet and reach the sanctuary of The Gravedigger's Arms.

Just be careful about how you treat the Royal Family. My chances of getting an OBE are pretty slim, without you upsetting little Willie and his Mum. And I can do without Prince Andrew waiting for me on a dark corner.

If you upset the Pope, on your own head be it. I'm not going into the fiery furnace because of your irreverance. And speaking of the Pope - don't in front of Ian Paisley unless you want a right earful of the Armagh twang.

There isn't a bulletproof vest available in your size, so watch out at Greenham Common if the bullets start to fly.

That's all I'm prepared to tell you about this game except to say that all the usual adventure game instructions are accepted, plus some more that you will have to find out for yourself!

In case you hadnít realised, you take the role of Denis Thatcher. I have chosen for your guide through the adventure that lovable MP from Bolsover, Dennis Skinner.

You can deal with all the monsters in the game, but tangle with the Iron Lady and you wonít half get it when she gets you home.
