A VERY VERY Liberal friend (he was involved in the music scene from the 60’s and still lives in LaLa Land) admitted that (after seeing the film with Meryl Streep) that Margaret Thatcher’s weren’t so bad, just rigid.

I almost spit out my coffee.

Actually, I thought The Iron Lady was a great film (Meryl Streep’s performance was stunning) and was remarkably apolitical. I expected to hate it, but it showed her as she was: a person from a modest background despised by the entrenched powers both for being a female and being a shopkeeper’s daughter, who had gotten where she was out of determination to make her point, sort of like Sarah Palin if Palin hadn’t lost her nerve and dropped out of electoral politics.

I’m in London right now, and what’s bizarre is that one still sees so many references to her - and they are increasingly more respectful. I think that one reason is that whether people liked her or not, they knew where she stood.
