'I'm particularly keen on this one, as it shows someone else in the cabinet. Liz Truss, the foreign secretary, had been pictured atop a tank in Estonia, a la Margaret Thatcher in West Germany in 1986. It was blatantly obvious that she was attempting to show her Thatcher-esque credentials, boost her rankings in the party and show her leadership ambitions.' Peter Brookes
