My speech was delivered from a prepared text, copies of which were distributed. It is clear from the text that I did, in fact, speak in warm praise of Ms Pembridge's undoubted fighting qualities. I described her as "a woman of indomitable energy, courage and sincerity".
The reference to "dangerous feminist" was clearly jocular and nearly everyone took it as such.
