Bitter medicine

Advantages: Some of the substance
Disadvantages: All of the style

Speaking as someone who always loathed her and never voted for her party, I believe Margaret Thatcher’s premiership was, on balance, good rather than bad for Britain. But what a difficult balance it is to strike, with heavy weights on both sides of the ...

Review of Thatcher's premiership: Good or bad for Britain?

The devil better watch out as he is about to be made unemployed.

Advantages: The democracy she secured allowed us to have our say
Disadvantages: She hated her roots

As much as I dislike Thatcher I would not wish Alzheimer’s on anyone. For 68% of you it’s dementia or cancer that’s going to get you in the end. It’s a terrible illness and punishment enough for her sins. Death rarely affords dignity, the dignity the mine ...

The jury is out, and will be for a long time. The eleven-year tenure as Prime Minister of Margaret Thatcher, a towering figure in British politics - Ed Miliband’s words, not mine - was good and bad for Britain. According to a Sunday Times YouGov poll af ...

Review of Thatcher's premiership: Good or bad for Britain?

Maggie tHATchER

Advantages: Made Dallas and Dynasty hair-dos look decidely flat
Disadvantages: Didn't add enough due to word limit.

Britain does state funerals so well; we pride ourselves on the well-rehearsed salutes and canon-gun fires to our, ‘we are all Thatcherites now’ detriment. The establishment stopped the chimes of Big Ben, allegedly dawn-stormed known activist’s homes and ...
