Joyce Hopkirk organizes a brewery bash

"Joyce Hopkirk's career as woman's editor of the Daily Mirror is fondly remembered for the occasion when a male colleague informed her exasperatedly that she couldn't organise a piss-up in a brewery. Ms Hopkirk's genial response was to book the boardroom at a leading London brewery, lay on a lavish supply of food and drink and send invitations to her accuser and other Mirror colleagues to attend this piss-up in a brewery she had indisputably organised. It was a pity that all the invitations were sent bearing the wrong date."
