Margaret Thatcher - Buy British campaign

"At the height of her 'Buy British' campaign,

[Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher] took to upbraiding journalists who interviewed her about their Japanese tape recorders, and even making them open their jackets to ascertain whether their suits had come from Italy or Hong Kong. The campaign waned somewhat after the Prime Minister's trip to the Falklands, when it was discovered that the heated hair-rollers she took with her had been made in Denmark."
