“Mr Burrow, do you think her detractors should show some respect now she is dead?” – No comment.

“Mr Burrow, overall would you a agree that she was probably Britain’s greatest peace time Prime Minister? – No comment.

“Mr Burrow, do you think Mrs Thatcher should be afforded a ceremonial funeral at the taxpayers expense?” – No comment.

Mr Burrow, do you have anything to say about the death of Mrs Thatcher?”

“Tha knows, me dear old mam used to say, “If tha can’t say owt good about t’dead, best say nowt t’all”.

I also remember this, ” In War: Resolution. In Defeat: Defiance. In Victory: Magnanimity. In Peace: Goodwill.”
