Margaret Thatcher dies….

In lieu of something more substantial, here’s a link to probably the most generous thing I’ve ever written (or thought) about the self styled Iron Lady…

Such generosity does not come easy… She came to prominence the same year I first got the vote, and I came to England just as she was in the latter stages of an almighty asset strip of much of Britain’s industrial base…

But, she was a force to be reckoned with, and not all of the problems she provided solutions to were all of her own, or her party’s making…

More later… Usual rules apply to commenting. Keep it controlled please!!
