Thatcher - Her Most Regal Majesty, the Queen of Snark
void where prohibited, except by law
So, Thatcher. We all know the bad. What I'd like people to remember is that she clawed her way up from humble beginnings and carved out a space for herself among the elite. Also, having got there, she tried her very best within her own paradigm to ensure that the ladder wasn't pulled up behind her. There has not since her been a British politician so committed to equality of opportunity, and this is a sad thing. Our supposed left wing politicians could do far worse than look to Thatcher when it comes to giving impoverished but gifted people the means to succeed.
