PM questions Thatcher film timing

David Cameron has praised the actress Meryl Streep, in her role playing Margaret Thatcher in the Iron Lady, but has questioned the timing of the film's release.

The biopic has been criticised for the way it shows the former prime minister suffering from dementia.

Mr Cameron told Today presenter Evan Davis that he had watched the film and admired the "fantastic" acting, but "you can't help wondering why do we have to have this film right now?"
