The company was founded by a partnership between Michael Marks, a Belarusian Jew from Slonim (Marks was born into a Polish-Jewish family, a Polish refugee living in the Russian Empire (now in Belarus)), and Thomas Spencer, a cashier from the English market town of Skipton in North Yorkshire.. On his arrival in England, Marks worked for a company in Leeds, called Barran, which employed refugees (see Sir John Barran, 1st Baronet).. In 1884 he met Isaac Jowitt Dewhirst while looking for work. Dewhirst lent Marks £5 which he used to establish his Penny Bazaar on Kirkgate Market, in Leeds.. Dewhirst also taught him a little English. Dewhirst's cashier was Tom Spencer, an excellent bookkeeper, whose lively and intelligent second wife, Agnes, helped improve Marks' English.. In 1894, when Marks acquired a permanent stall in Leeds' covered market, he invited Spencer to become his partner..

One of her biographers wrote that Thatcher's "coolness, in the immediate aftermath of the attack and in the hours after it, won universal admiration..

Immediately afterwards, her popularity soared almost to the level it had been during the Falklands War..Thatcher was a hated figure in some sections of British society.. At the time of the bombing, the miners' strike was underway.. Morrissey, frontman of the popular English alternative rock band The Smiths, said shortly after: "the only sorrow of the Brighton bombing is that Thatcher escaped unscathed"..In 86, English punk band the Angelic Upstarts celebrated the IRA's assassination attempt with their controversial single "Brighton Bomb"..Daily Telegraph journalist David Hughes called the bombing "the most audacious attack on a British government since the Gunpowder Plot" and wrote that it "marked the end of an age of comparative innocence.. From that day forward, all party conferences in this country have become heavily defended citadels"..Sir, have these children never heard of Jesus?..
