refuses to take her to the Lord Lieutenant's luncheon where the
Royal person will attend. So Audrey decides to bring to Alf's
attention the fact that she can get her own way and embarrasses
him into the bargain. Alf and Betty are due to open a new sports
centre, Audrey enlists the help of butcher Fred Eliott and they
change the time of Alf's visit to 1/2 hour earlier than planned,
Audrey rings the sports centre to tell them the Mayor can't make
it but the Mayoress will attend in his place. So Audrey and Fred
make it to the sports centre and get all of the attention that
should have gone to Alf, Audrey even steals Alf's speech and reads
it out. Unfortunately for Audrey, Alf and Betty arrive just as
Audrey is finishing her speech and Alf is furious. When they get

and has been told that Vicky isn't actually clever enough to do
