The fury of Glenda Jackson…

Richard Osley

DID you see Hampstead and Kilburn MP Glenda Jackson tearing into the memory of Margaret Thatcher in a special House of Commons session aimed at paying tribute to the former PM this afternoon? She is clearly in feisty mood this week… as Conservative chairman Grant Shapps had already found out this week when he dared to write to her telling him how he will be tweeting all of the government’s achievements.

Glenda’s not a heavy Twitter user – but I don’t think that’s what annoyed her the most. Her quick, spiky reply tells him: ‘There’s no good news to broadcast here’. She writes that receiving Mr Shapps’s initial letter had caused her “considerable outrage”. Their letters are below for you to see in full. Like her performance in the House this afternoon, she doesn’t hold back.
