I’M NOT a Tory supporter but I think that it was disgraceful the way the press and media focused on the distress of the Prime Minister during her conference speech (Echo, Oct 5). Surely the speech should have been the main focus?

Little was reported when in 1984 Margaret Thatcher tripped and fell down the steps of The Great Hall of the People in China. Is this another case of kicking our politicians when they are down?
