The Ballsiest PM in History Dies – RIP Margaret Thatcher

She might not be popular. Well, where I’m from she’s definitely not popular. Nor is she popular in the North East or in Wales where she crippled the economy with the closure of the mines. But whether or not you agree with her hard line policies, you cannot deny that she’s the ballsiest Prime Minister to have been at the helm in this country. And here’s one of my favourite quotes from Thatcher. One that is perhaps quite timely at the moment….

My policies are based not on some economics theory, but on things I and millions like me were brought up with: an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay; live within your means; put by a nest egg for a rainy day; pay your bills on time; support the police.

 

RIP Thatcher.

Side note: anyone know if there’ll be a bank holiday for the funeral? 😉
