All things must pass
As a youngster I was far from the Blessed Margarets biggest fan, in fact I swallowed the lefty media cant with gusto. Her championing of western freedom and her opposition to communist Russia did however finally win me over to her side as I always realised that here in the west, life was as good, free and worth defending as it could get. Now it seems the great lady is seeing out her final days and I can only sadly reflect upon the massive presence and shadow the Iron lady once cast. Todays 'peas in a pod' tri party lookalikes all seem to be just so much puff and froth whereas with Lady Thatcher you could actually believe that her words would become deeds and not just so many ephemeral headlines. I know she had many faults and some of her decisions are today the source of much dissatisfaction but all in all the Lady along with her partner in arms President Ronald Reagan deserve honouring before we are left bereft in a land ruled by political chancers and moral midgets.
