Maggie’s hardline approach on milk made her my saviour

We all have our own opinions of Margaret Thatcher.

The word ‘divisive’ has been used a lot this week, but as a ’70s child Maggie’s hardline saved me.

Free school milk was cut in the late ’70s to save £20m a year. Thank goodness.

In the summer, the tiny little bottles would sit fermenting in the never-ending sunshine for most of the day. The bubbling, solidified cheese in the neck of the bottle could make a Frenchman wheeze.

Or, in the winter the frozen milky sorbet would slowly ebb from the bottle, freezing your gnashers on impact.

I may have low bone density/calcium deficiency these days, but 35 years ago she was my saviour.
