For all those people who derided Jack for talking about compassion and offering hope, just remind yourselves of Margaret Thatcher's words on the steps of Number ten after winning in 1979.


On the steps of Number 10, she quoted from St Francis of Assisi: "Where there is discord, may we bring harmony. Where there is error, may we bring truth. Where there is doubt, may we bring faith. And where there is despair, may we bring hope."

last night on German TV Channel Phoenix they showed a documentary on Thatcher (presumably because Merkel became Germany's youngest Chancellor yesterday) and after this little homily was delivered on screen it cut to Jim Prior saying he felt like throwing up on the spot when he heard her say this.
