Moving account of the effects of terrorism. Norman Tebbit's wife Margaret was left a tetraplegic after the 1984 Brighton bombings by the IRA.

I wonder whether norman tebbit's experience of the brighton bomb might help him to empathise with victims of attacks by mentally ill people especially after his government's closure of mental institutions and the acceleration of care in the community?
I dont just allude to the people murdered by the mentally ill (more die this way every year than died in the terror attack on 7/7/5).
evry day and night people who have committed no crime are attacked in their homes and communities.Doors forced open,locks glued up death threats...local ombudsman suggests victims live with additional locks to cut risk of forced entry and wire basket to contain any substance posted that might result in fire as has occurred by mentlally ill attack elsewhere.
