Baroness Thatcher: Merry Moral Relativism

It’s nearly Christmas! Ho Ho Ho. Oh. Oh… I have been so busy, I haven’t even bought a card, let alone written one. Present buying started in earnest at 2 am this morning. Amazon, I hope your staff walk that extra mile, and pick and pack my items at the double. (And please can you

BARONESS THATCHER: Don’t You Just Love Hate Crime.

I had a letter from the police today. My local police authority, South Wales Police – and its “Crime Commissioner”, Mr Alun Michael – wrote to me asking if I would take part in a survey. God bless the police and crime commissioners. They seem to think that people would rather pay the police service

Baroness Thatcher: Remember, Remember the 11th of November

Yesterday, I had to travel along the M4. As normal for a woman of my age, I stopped in one of the service stations. Whilst there, I had the privilege to speak with two World War Two Veterans. They declined a cup of tea and a cake (“We are being very well looked after, thank

Baroness Thatcher : Two Minutes Hate

When Lady Thatcher died, I didn’t hold a street party. Neither did I hear Carol and Mark Thatcher tell people that they could not discuss their mother. I encourage those who wish to discuss her politics and her thoughts. She was a woman who made history. Her policies shaped the world. Her private life moulded

Baroness Thatcher : Lifting The Veil

Welcome to Britain. In Britain, we do not have the freedom to choose how we dress in this country. If you believe we do, I suggest you might like to try walking down The Mall wearing nothing but a knotted handkerchief and a smile. This level of public dress might be acceptable in certain parts

Thatcher on Thursday (slightly delayed) : Pay Attention.

Margaret Thatcher refused to privatise the Royal Mail. She memorably stated that she was “not prepared to have the Queen’s Head privatised”. I’m with Lady Thatcher on this. I’m also with 67% of the British public, The Bow Group, The Countryside Alliance and Labour. What? Me? The ardent Thatcherite is standing with Labour? I need

Thatcher on Thursday: Syria Spills and Spreads

“It is not a question of if – it’s a question of when. We know he has already devolved the decision to lower commanders and that means he has already taken the decision himself.” Those words were spoken by Col Tim Collins in 2003, on the eve of the invasion of Iraq. He was speaking
