More should take lead from Maggie
Regarding the T-shirts celebrating the eventual death of Margaret Thatcher on sale at the TUC conference.
Mrs Thatcher may not have been to everybody's taste, but she was still one of the greatest stateswomen of the 20th century.
The trouble with the lefties of the Trades Union Congress is that she put them back in their box.
She also held many male-dominated groups to account, including some of her colleagues in parliament and cabinet.

She did, however, take the bull by the horns on many occasions, including during the Falklands War and at the Conservative conference at the time of the Brighton bombing, she and many of her colleagues were nearly killed / murdered by the IRA.
She, however, in her indomitable spirit, the morning after the bomb exploded, got Marks and Spencer to open its doors at 5.30am so she and all the others could get some clothes.
I happened to be attending the Brighton Conservative conference at this time and also went along that morning.
I saw the way she carried on in the British bulldog spirit, even though several people she was close to had been badly injured.
These T-shirts/packs do not deserve news space, but I suppose some will revel in giving an elderly stateswoman a kicking when she is too ill to reply or speak up for herself.
Yes, she deserves a state funeral.
I, for one, will go to London to show my respect.
I really could not care less if the TUC do not come, we need our politicians in this day and age to be more like Maggie, but sadly I do not think this will not happen at moment.
