TMB denies keeping low profile in advance of Queen's Speech

The Tripe Marketing Board has denied suggestions that it deliberately restricted its media presence in the run-up to today's Queen's Speech because it feared it could be abolished.

The accusation was made earlier today during an interview on the internet radio station Butcher FM by Donald McIntrow, deputy editor of the trade journal Offal Monthly.

Responding to Mr McIntrow's comments, TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle said: "It's ridiculous to suggest that we would somehow try to keep our heads down in advance of the Queen's Speech. We never worried for a minute that the TMB might be abolished".

Sir Norman said that any reduction in the TMB's social media presence over the last two weeks had been due to the imposition of a new staffing rota.  He went on to say: "David Cameron has described the Government's legislative package as "a programme for working people".  Tripe is a traditional food for working people, so it's got to be good news for our product".
