  1. My wife and I had a game for many years, spotting the number of times Mrs. Thatcher was blamed for all the world's ills. (She invented greed, you know!). It was surprising how often she cropped up.

    I think probably her big mistake was cutting THE ARTS COUNCIL GRANT. This put every luvvie and media troll against her and, being mostly seriously unoriginal people, they have kept saying it ever since - often to applause in the background.

    Having lived through the pre-Thatcher years, running a small business and getting through to the post-Thatcher years, the improvement was tremendously beneficial in all sort of ways. Even New Labour did not dare deliver us back into the hands of the trade union barons. Of course, since John Major it has been downhill in many other ways since then.
