Tie that donkey down

Tristram Hunt ("Let traitors flinch", 27 August) rehearses the canard of Michael Foot wearing a donkey jacket to the Cenotaph. This story, like so much written in the Sun about the pre-Blair Labour Party, was a lie. May I suggest that Hunt consult Another Heart and Other Pulses, Michael Foot's account of the 1983 election campaign, before he considers adding further currency to this malicious little myth.
