Maggie Maggie Maggie – Memories of Thatcher’s England


Hard to believe that Margaret Thatcher has died, although she has been long gone from the public stage and eye. I wasn’t a fan of her policies – I worked for the rival Labour Party in 1980 as an intern for a young MP named Jack Straw who went on to become a household name himself. And back then, we used to march through the streets during one rally or another  chanting ” Maggie, Maggie, Maggie, Out, out, out.” But I did admire her courage and determination. And this photo (below) of Maggie berating Jack has hung on my office wall for some 30 years.
