Margaret Thatcher - Remarks after Brighton Bombing

This clip, from a BBC documentary on Margaret Thatcher, includes her remarks after the Brighton bombing.  She had been the target of an assassination attempt which did not kill her because the bomb was planted in the wrong place.

Still ... the restroom in the Thatcher suite—where MT had been just moments before—was destroyed.  Denis Thatcher, the Prime Minister's husband, described it as having been "blitzed."
