Maggie

Margaret Thatcher 1925 – 2013. Our fearless leader passeth…….

I stood to attention and sang Land of Hope and Glory on hearing the news on the radio.

She rescued this country from its slide into a penurious socialist dystopia under the dictatorship of the union barons.

She took back the Falklands and toppled a vile murderous dictatorship, for which the people of Argentina should remain eternally grateful.

She faced down the Soviet Empire and helped to free the peoples of Eastern Europe.

She restored a spirit of enterprise to Britain, I remain forever grateful for the opportunity to participate in that.

Okay, so She did make a few mistakes, the poll tax proved a mean and fatal miscalculation, but Her intuitions about Europe proved correct, what a ghastly shambles that now looks.

Appropriately Her funeral will take place at St Paul’s Cathedral, Britain’s temple to its heroes; Nelson, Wellington, Jellico, Montgomery, they all lie there.

Perhaps I’ll go and line the route in case some protesting Marxists require my attentions.

Pete.
