This Day in History: 1993-06-04

Tonight’s edition of Have I Got News for You – which went out at 10pm on BBC Two – saw Roy Hattersley replaced by a tub of lard. Mr Hattersley failed to turn up for the programme recording. This was apparently the third time he had cancelled at the last minute. The tub of lard was credited at the end of the programme: “The Rt. Hon. Tub of Lard MP”.
