Margaret Thatcher and Mr Whippy

From the Mr Whippy Ice Cream website:

One important development in the 20th century was the introduction of soft ice cream (like Mr Whippy uses!). A chemical research team in Britain (of which a young Margaret Thatcher was a member) discovered a method of doubling the amount of air in ice cream, which allowed manufacturers to use less of the actual ingredients, thereby reducing costs. 
Before become a member of parliament,  former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher whilst working as a research chemist for J.Lyons & Co and developing emulsifiers, quite literally found a way OF TAKING ICE CREAM FROM CHILDREN.
