My tribute to Margaret Thatcher

Annie keeps telling me I should write something about Maggie. I can do no better than to redirect anyone who wants a more honest evaluation of her legacy than all the hagiography in the press over the last few days to this article http://www.salon.com/2013/04/09/the_woman_who_wrecked_great_britain/.

I will quote one sentence ‘Margaret Thatcher was a zealot, a friend to the worst mass murderers of the 1980s, a force for antisocial cruelty, and her violent means of ending the great British experiment in social democracy made the country a more brutal, less equal country’. Farewell Maggie.
