    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

    "I grew up in the '30s with an unemployed father. He didn't riot. He got on his bike and looked for work, and he kept looking 'til he found it."

    Though the remark was made to a party supporter and not to someone who had lost their job, as popularly supposed, the hard-line employment secretary thereafter became Norman "On yer bike!" Tebbit, and "Get on your bike and look for work" became the Thatcher-era admonition to the unemployed.
