Among the many parodies of Obama's "Hope" poster we made during the 2008 elections was Margaret Thatcher's image captioned as "Iron." It has been since a popular selling item at our online store.
But last month we were also contacted by the treasurer at the Grantham Museum in England, who asked for permission to use this image in their campaign for a Margaret Thatcher statue in Grantham, Lincolnshire, where the future Prime Minister was born and raised.
Grantham already has a statue of its native son, Sir Isaac Newton; it is only fair that it also has a statue of its native daughter, whose contribution to politics might be as important as Newton's contribution to physics.
We also created a web banner, which is now displayed at the project's website and serves as an avatar on its Facebook page, as well as a permanent logo throughout the campaign video.
We were promised photos of merchandise with our image in the museum shop and/or campaign events, as well as samples of actual items - mugs, T-shirts, etc. Stay tuned for updates!
Nope. You can’t raise a statue of her. Hate crime. She was a conservative, therefor she must have been a racist. I’m calling the Thought Police.
I would hope the statue be MADE OF IRON.
