Tuesday 14th July 1981

My paper leaked to GUARDIAN (Ian Aitken on back page).

E cancelled AGAIN - Long meeting with PM and Brian Griffiths. She complains about press being against her (especially David Blake the Hampstead Thinker). Agree that I write on intellectual defence of the policy SOON.

Garden Party with MPW [AAW s wife, Margaret Patricia Walters] + Louise.

Dinner with David Hart.
