TMB chairman apologises to Bulgarians
Tripe Marketing Board chairman Sir Norman Wrassle has apologised for any offence caused to the the Bulgarian nation when his comments about the country's tripe soup were made public after a TMB employee reached a settlement with the board before an Employment Tribunal.
Sir Norman's comments were contained in a recording of a private conversation. Speaking after the settlement had been reached, Sir Norman said: "I'm naturally disappointed that this recording has surfaced and I would not like it to be interpreted in any way that Bulgarian tripe soup is not perfectly edible. I understand that many Bulgarians swear by eating the soup as a hangover cure. It is not personally to my taste and I would hope this episode does not sour the very cordial relations we have with the Bulgarian people."
