The revised figures mean that this is the 229th successive quarter in which tripe sales have fallen. Sir Norman said he was not downhearted by the results, as the fall represented the smallest on record. "The idea that we're in the business of hoodwinking the public is ludicrous. We're clearly close to turning the corner. If we don't do it this quarter, then I'm sure it won't be long after that," he said.
Responding to questions from the audience, Sir Norman admitted that the TMB planned a relaunch of Tripe Club - the popular children's membership organisation that ran from 1958 until the mid-1970s. "The new Tripe Club will be aimed squarely at 'Generation Tripe' - those who were born after the Second World War and who may have forgotten just how tasty tripe can be!" he said.
