I have a piece on Baroness Thatcher's 85th birthday in today's Express. It's here.

I understand from Iain Dale that she sent a letter to Number 10, saying that she couldn't come to the party because of illness. "Unfortunately," she added, "the lady's not for returning."

I saw this comment yesterday,
"Margaret Thatcher must be gutted. Her 85th birthday and the only thing on the telly are miners celebrating."

But seriously what a dreadful beast she is. Someone who supported Pinochet and called Mandela a terrorist. A good friend of Israel though.....

And anyway why does Stephen need to keep having to direct us to Daily Express articles doesn't he know that we all avidly read it ever since it managed to keep the Madeleine McCann case on its front page every single day for a whole year

Stephen Pollard,
You write:

"We have our own enemy within but a very different one: the supporters and allies of radical Islam, who threaten the fabric of society and our basic values. Just as Baroness Thatcher was firm in her stance and ignored the appeasers of communism so Mr Cameron must never accommodate the threat from radical Islam to make for an easier life."

Of course, you don't believe that the burka should be banned. For some reason, you believe that it is analogous to banning the waving of the Israeli flag in public.
Just for the record, when did you last do so?

Perhaps it is time that you released a "mea culpa" and admitted that your analogy was extemely foolish?
