  Norman Fowler - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Right Honourable Peter Norman Fowler, Baron Fowler, PC (born 1937) usually known as Norman Fowler before he was given his peerage, and probably now best known as Lord Fowler, is a British Conservative politician who was from 1981 to 1990 a member of Margaret Thatcher's Cabinet.
Fowler later resigned this post and became the first politician to cite "to spend more time with his (my) family" as his reasoning.
Although it was the truth in Fowler's case, the expression later became a smokescreen for politicans who had quit high-profile roles for slightly more dark or controversial reasons.

FOWLER: We were, and that is regrettably the name of the game when you only have an overall majority of fourteen or fifteen, and there I think are lessons for the party on this, and on other issues as well.
FOWLER: Well, I'm not going to go into the descriptions, it strikes me as slightly confused description of the position, but what I would say is that the minority who have temporarily defeated us at this point, I don't think they represent the bulk of the Conservative party in parliament itself.
FOWLER: Well, I don't know what you mean by 'wither on the vine' the basic state pension, it was one of the points which was made in the film, I mean I would love it to have been an insurance based scheme, but it isn't an insurance based scheme it's a pay-as-you-go scheme.

FOWLER: That's the deputy minister and if that was going to be the case, I mean by the custom of these things in the House of Commons as you know, John Greenway, my number two responded to that.
FOWLER: Well, I think that if you read the report, and I think that the defacing of the Stephen Lawrence memorial was an appalling act and I have utter contempt for those people who did it, and I think that clearly we could have taken better action in defending it.
FOWLER: Well, I think they are two different cases, and I don't - as you go back to the report itself I think that there is nothing in the report which indicates that he should resign or indeed that that is the intention of Sir William Macpherson that he should do so.
