Letter: In praise of Mo

THANK YOU, Julia Langdon, for giving credit to Mo Mowlam ("Tony's way with women", 19 December). I've been waiting for some acknowledgment of her hard work towards the Irish agreement, from government or the media. A gracious compliment from eleventh-hour Mandelson, as he sipped his celebratory champagne, would have been welcome: "I am standing on the shoulder of a small giant." But no, not a word!

I look forward to Julia Langdon's book on Mo Mowlam to set the record straight.
