This weekend in The Telegraph is a special DVD of Margaret Thatcher and also one about the Falkland war thought I would let her fans know so they can have the paper put by for them as with this offer they are likely to be sold out.

My memories of her is Maggie Thatcher the milk snatcher,

I used to love the Spitting Image puppet of her.

Re: Margaret Thatcher

Thatcher was a tyrant & political menace who robbed from the poor to give to the rich.

The day she was shoved out of office was a good day for Britain.

Re: Margaret Thatcher

I can't see the Telegraph selling out.

Thatcher was slightly before my (adult) time, so I've not had much dealings with the 'Iron Lady'.

All I remember is the Falklands and giving people the right to buy their council property.
Was the right to buy a good thing? I imagine it's left quite a few councils short of cash.

Re: Margaret Thatcher

Can`t agree more DeeZ.
Won`t be any sentiment from the shoe operatives in the Valley whose jobs were destroyed by her `market forces`.

Re: Margaret Thatcher

I was made redundant in the Thatcher years working for a company for 20yrs, it turned out to be the best thing job-wise that ever happened to me.
The shoe industry like the cotton was doomed with the cheap labour abroad

Re: Margaret Thatcher

On the day in 1982 that the British task force set sail to recover the Falkland Islands from the Argentine invaders, Margaret Thatcher was asked on television: "If you fail, would you feel obliged to resign?" "Failure?" she answered, "Do you remember what Queen Victoria once said? 'Failure - the possibilities do not exist'."
The remark goes to the heart of Mrs Thatcher's essential political message, and of her character. It shows her romantic patriotism, her confidence in her own sex, and her dauntlessness.
Margaret Thatcher makes a speech in 1975 at the Tory Campaign to keep Britain in the Common Market, as Ted Heath looks on
Failure had been the dominant experience of the British political class since 1945. After the exhaustion of war had come the painful business of extricating ourselves from empire. From the early Sixties was added relative economic decline.
Many people decided that failure was something Britain was rather good at, and took a perverse pride in it. Mandarins spoke of "the orderly management of decline". Satirists spoke of Britain "sinking giggling into the sea".
