A frail Margaret Thatcher pictured tonight at the Thistle hotel in Glasgow. The former Prime Minister, now a Baroness, was preparing to  attend a dinner in the city with Michael Forsyth and Annabelle Goldie as part of the events to mark the 30th anniversary of her coming to power.<br />

It needs to apologise for the debts that every child born in our country now faces of £22,500, the shambles they created for our economy and the 11 wasted years."<br />
