From Mr S. James

Sir: So, Alison Hargreaves is dead. She seems to have been very lucky to have been able to do exactly what she liked, when she liked and how she liked, with little thought for either husband or family, who now face a future without her. She was not a "heroine", simply a product of Thatcherite policies who thought that she should be able to do as she liked without thinking of anyone else. She spent her life on holiday.

Yours faithfully,

S. James
