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.
It was a good movie
That was a great time...the Gipper and the Iron Lady
Those were the days my friend we thought they`d never end
