'There's some really sad news for us,' I said . 'Margaret Thatcher died yesterday."
'She was a wonderful person who honoured her word.'
'Do we publish our book, to keep the promise?'
'Yes, we must. It is the correct moment and that's what she wanted us to do.'
'Will anyone be hurt ?'
'No, it's history.'
