In The Times on 9 January 2016 - Managing Director Neil Westwood from Magic Whiteboard has received two offers from Japan and South Korea for Margaret Thatcher's parliamentary robes. Offers have been received for £100,000 and £150,000 for former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's unique parliamentary robes.

Neil Westwood Managing Director of Magic Whiteboard won Margaret Thatcher's parliamentary robes after a bidding war for £84,000 at auction house Christie's on 15th December.
