Yes! That is what I said - a Roy Jenkins china thimble. No, I have no way of explaining it either.
On one side is a picture of Roy Jenkins, and on the other side are the results of the Warrington by-election in 1981, the first time an SDP candidate stood as a candidate. They came second.
I am not denigrating the achievements of the SDP (and let's not forget the Liberal Alliance, either), but is this really the sort of thing we want to see on a commemorative china thimble?
(And they came second. Number Two. Second banana. Runner-up. Close, but no cigar. Second fiddle. Silver medal. In second place.)
