Charm­ing Mar­garet

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

NATHANIEL PARKER re­marks about Mar­garet Thatcher that he ‘never heard any­one call her charm­ing’ (‘Bring­ing the house down’, Novem­ber 16). Dur­ing the 1980s, while serv­ing as Pri­vate Sec­re­tary to three se­nior Gov­ern­ment Min­is­ters, I met Mrs Thatcher a num­ber of times and found her al­to­gether charm­ing as an in­di­vid­ual, if (cor­rectly) steely on mat­ters of pol­icy. I was far from alone in this opin­ion. Per­haps you could kindly re­lay this to Mr Parker, so that an ob­vi­ous la­cuna in his ex­pe­ri­ence can be filled? Neil Hoyle, Kirkcud­bright­shire
