Labour Party leader Michael Foot is not tempted by the pork pie and sandwiches

Labour Party leader Michael Foot is not tempted by the pork pie and sandwiches. During his visit to the Midlands he made a speech, which lasted 45 minutes, at Central Methodist Hall, Coventry. He had an audience of 1,200 people who listened to his condemnation of the Tories. He called them "Idealogical lunatics" and described the Employment Secretary as "The unspeakable Tebbit." But Mr Foot was generally in good humour, warming to the enthusiastic audience and to his basic themes of jobs and the welfare state. Sensing that Labour had at last touched a raw gevernment nerve, he again rammed home the attack on the health service. While the Tories hated the NHS and would run it down, he claimed, Labour would boost its budget by 3 per cent a year in real terms. On jobs, Mr Foot outlined how Labour would put £550 million into West Midlands industry within 12 months of taking power, and he gave a firm pledge to rescue and sustain the machine tool sector.
He also did a walkabout in Nuneaton which finished at the Labour headquarters building in Abbey Street.
