Quote of the day 18th March 2022

"I want to focus" (today on) i"Margaret Thatcher’s speech here in October 1989.

As the Iron Curtain was about to lift she stood here and told the Winter Gardens:

‘The torch of freedom that is now the symbol of our Party.....

.... became the beacon that has shed its light ....

.... across the Iron Curtain into the East.

 Today that beacon shines more strongly....

....than at any time this century.’

(Oliver Dowden, Conservative Chairman, Opening the Conservative Spring Conference in Blackpool today and referring to an earlier speech by Margaret Thatcher at the same venue.)
