Allies of former prime minister regard darling of Tea Party movement as a frivolous figure unworthy of an audience
Sarah Palin wants to show to the Republican right that she is the true keeper of the Ronald Reagan flame by meeting the late president's closest ally on the world stage.

The UK is insignificant and is not the universe anyway, so it doesn’t matter. People don’t GO to the UK, they end up there.
I wouldn’t put too much stock in anything the Guardian reports. They are as left-wing as you can get, and in Britain, that’s pretty far out.
Maggie is not well health wise and this point Sarah hasn’t announced. So why should see her.
Hearsay by and unnamed “aide”.
“The UK is insignificant and is not the universe anyway, so it doesnt matter...”
they have chosen to live under shiria law and whorship queers
Read the actual article and let me know if Thatcher actually said what the article title states.
My guess is that any of the possible candidates except possibly Obama for obvious reasons would have been turned down and the story is jazzed up also for obvious reasons.
There were rumors floating around a few weeks ago that Thatcher was deathly ill. Not sure how true that was, though.
From my brief experience, Thatcher isn't so universally admired in the UK either.
Per the article Thatcher didn’t say any of this in spite of the title. So called ‘allies’ of her made these statements.
Unnamed sources close to Thatcher who miraculously confide in the Guardian? I don't think so.
This is a ludicrous, poisonous story.
I’m not a supporter of Sarah Palin for president but I suspect this has a lot more to do with Thatcher’s health than it does Palin’s politics.
I was going to post the same.. the Guardian is as left as you can get with newspapers in the UK.. (BBC is the televised version).
No... the ‘dangerous lightweight’ is who we have in the WH right now.
Not that I don't trust every word I hear from or read from the foreign version of our Libturd Media, but, where's my grain of salt?
It would appear that the reasons go deeper than Thatcher's frail health. Her allies believe that Palin is a frivolous figure who is unworthy of an audience with the Iron Lady. This is what one ally tells me:
Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin. That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts.
Where in this does it state what Thatcher said?
The article claims to describe how Lady Thatcher regards Sarah Palin but it contains no evidence to support this claim.
This article is garbage. Some ‘ally’ of Thatcher makes a nasty comment about Palin and they write a news story about it. Besides, didn’t she already meet with Thatcher in 2010? I remember reading something about it.
This is probably a BS story....Palin was openly invited last year to meet Lady Thatcher. The liberal rags over in the UK are notoriously known to lie and make up things
“This is a ludicrous, poisonous story.”
Par for the course for the sissy boy, slap party QueerMedia.
I call B.S. Lady Thatcher would not say this, methinks.
“Allies of Margaret Thatcher” in other words, Maggie didn’t say any such thing. Her people did. Headline is misleading.
Not only would Lady Thatcher not say something so snippy, the media are a pack of chronic liars working as the propaganda arm of the DNC so we need look no further for explanation. ... Is it guillotine time yet?
Considering the source, looks to me like the rag's trying to gin up a game of lets-you-and-him-fight.
In fact, Palin confirmed last week that she has plans to see Lady Thatcher next month, if she is well enough. So Palin must have solid info that she is indeed invited to see Thatcher, not a liberal rage with an anonymous source dissing her.
“The UK is insignificant and is not the universe anyway, so it doesnt matter.”
The demise of the once great UK is the world’s loss.
Apt typo alert!
I don’t know who these supposed “allies” are, but I seriously doubt that Maggie has become a snob in her twilight years.
It seems the concern troll is concerned.
Thatcher deserves better than this kind of reporting. She most certainly does not believe Sarah is a lightweight. She ought not be painted as less a lady she once was. Reagan, after all, remained a gentleman through the dark years of his dementia.
Man, the PDS is strong in these ones! Sarah Palin truly lives "rent-free" in their heads.
In a Facebook post scheduled to go up Monday, Palin writes: I have received an invitation for a visit to London, and part of that invitation included the offer of arranging a meeting between myself and one of my political heroines, the Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher.
The headline said "Margaret Thatcher to Sarah Palin: don't bother dropping by."
But when I get in the article, there's an unnamed 'ally' that's saying it.
I am an ally of Anthony Weiner. He intends to resign today.....Okay, now I'm waiting for the Guardian headline.... Anthony Weiner: I will resign today.
Baroness Thatcher was to attend a party in honor of her 85th birthday to be given by the new prime minister back in 2010. She had to pull out for health reasons and actually went into the hospital for a short stay. She also was invited to the recent William and Kate bash, but declined to attend.
There are rumors about the poor state of her health and one has to wonder if she will make it to the unveiling of the Ronald Reagan statue on July 4. I suspect that health reasons, not her attitude toward Sarah Palin, are the reason she does not meet with the latter, if it turns out that way. Of course the Communist press would love to portray that as a snub to Sarah, due to the universal leftist Palin hatred.
I agree, that’s why I was so disappointed when I had great expectations of moving there and enjoying a new life. I couldn’t stand it for more than nine months and left my job just to get away from the insanity of British cultural and social ridiculousness.
That's certainly true. I have family members there that still blame Thatcher for everything.
When you point out that she left 20 years ago and was replaced by a Labour govt., and why didn't they fix things? You get spluttering and “it takes time to change” noise...:^)
It's the usual problem of trying to get logic from a liberal.
They attack Sarah..... I vote for her.
Win win...free publicity an votes.
She’s got these socialist peon presstitutes by the shorthairs doing what she wants em to do.
Sarah 2012 !
Margaret Thatcher is near death, and is in no condition to see anyone. For God’s sake, when will FR readers learn that the Guardian (the old Trotskyite and new Progressive rag) is not worth reading or posting?
Apparently neither is Thatcher. Read the comments following the article.
What a load of rubbish.
Thatcher is very unwell and many days is unable to recognizes her family members and staff. She isn’t seeing visitors of any kind.
I have a very strong feeling Thatcher herself will be furious when she reads this.
It appears that the alleged "allies" of Margret Thatcher have not yet matured beyond the level of middle school.
THIS TITLE IS A LIE
The article itself says NOTHING of the sort
They only know what the US media has conveyed, slanted Tina Fey nonsense.
Think Katie Couric's "unnamed sources..."
