T-shirts bearing messages anticipating the imminent (hopefully) demise of  Margaret Thatcher have been removed from sale outside the conference hall hosting the TUC Congress, in Brighton, amongst accusations of being “tasteless”. They were being sold to raise funds for the Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centre.

One features a white cross on a grave with “Thatcher” across it, and the words: “A generation of trade unionists will dance on her grave”.
