    They weren’t under Mrs Thatcher’s leadership!
    She introduced charges that were later scrapped by the subsequent Labour government. These charges of course went against the stipulations of many bequesters.

    Best article about her I’ve seen today.

    She was our MP in North London in the early ’60s and one thing I will say is that she was always consistent and strong in her contempt for the ordinary British worker, even turning down a grant application from our very elderly WW1-veteran neighbour, reminding her that she “should have had more foresight and saved for a rainy day”.

    Lady T met a millionaire husband before she ever had the chance to get a proper job (as a chemist) – a husband with powerful friends who found in the pretty, fluffy Margaret a great foil for their Machiavellian ideas.

    The media loved her: after all, she possessed ‘the mouth of Marilyn Monroe and the eyes of Caligula’ – this ambitious, bitter, wannabe lawyer with the millionaire hubbie – such giants we will never see the like of again. Seriously?
