I'm doing an hour long phone-in on 5 Live's Richard Bacon programme at midnight tonight on the subject of whether Margaret Thatcher should have a State Funeral. I'm up against some lefty playwright called Ed Waugh, who wrote a play called MAGGIE'S END. Nice. It is probably just as well that he will be in the Newcastle studio.
UPDATE; A few people have commented that such a discussion is in poor taste and I shouldn't be taking part. I tend to agree that this is not an agreeable subject for polite discussion, but would you rather the whole hour was given over to Thatcher haters like Ed Waugh? I shall be vigorously defending the Good Lady's honour!
PS If you would like to phone into the show it's 0845 909693, text 85058 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
