|US Tripe - now known as TripeCorp™|
As he prepared for the meeting at his Washington hotel suite earlier today, Sir Norman told a reporter from local radio channel GNHV-21 that he had always had a special affection for the Americans. "During the war, my mother used to regularly entertain US soldiers from a nearby military base - I put my love of peanut butter down to that!" he said.
The agreement will see Lancashire tripe being exported in what Sir Norman said would be "industrial quantities", while the UK will see US tripe on its tables for the first time. "I am sure that British consumers will soon get a taste for tripe from cows that have a higher hormone content than we might be used to - just as they've got used to the peculiar taste of chocolate since the Americans bought up all our UK producers," he said.
Sir Norman said he was excited at the prospect of what he called "A New Deal for Tripe". "It's clear from the result of last year's presidential election that the USA has a huge appetite for tripe, and we plan to help meet that demand," he said.
