Maggie Thatcher

I met Maggie Thatcher once, though I saw her a few times on stage. To me Maggie was the 1970's and 1980's. A time of much needed change. Maggie changed Britain from a country destined for a left wing slow death by moving the centre of British politics to the right. Whilst there has been some movement in the Centre of British politics it is the left that moved to the right rather than the right moving to the left.

To me, Maggie Thatcher was the greatest leader the British had in my lifetime. A conviction politician to the last. Those who came after Maggie just pale into insignificance. An icon of hate for the left. Living diety to the right.

Gone but not forgotten.
