Well said Gordon

February 25, 2009

I don’t know David Cameron (although Mrs F went to school with Samantha Sheffield (as she then was) and her sister) but it goes without saying that my sympathies are with the Cameron family as they grieve for the sad loss of their elder son Ivan. As a father myself I cannot imagine what it must be like to lose a child.

I just wanted to say, however, that today, and I think for the first time, I was proud of our Prime Minister, whose speech to the House of Commons was perfectly pitched and clearly heartfelt. Well said, Prime Minister.
