Spitting Image Edit

Tebbit was charicatured as a leather clad skinhead, who primarily served as Margaret Thatcher's enforcer. He would always refer to her as 'leader', and would physically abuse her cabinet members in order to keep them in line.

Norman Tebbit himself has said he enjoyed his portrayal on the show, and while his wife didn't, his children found it funny. In the 2007 documentary "Best Ever Spitting Image", he said he was very fond of his portrayal.
