    Oh, boy. I don't think we need to worry about him doing anything close to that.

    She was only fifth longest serving PM. We already have the last of the cold warriors coming, nobody expects busy people to waste their time.
    Don't work out, work in.

    The star of this show is receiving the honor she earned, albeit posthumously, with over 2000 people in attendance! Wonderful! As a woman, this gladdens my heart to see another woman so honored!

    Good evening, Bonz!

    Another plus, IMO! And the British "Left" will be well represented tomorrow. It's the right thing to do, Bonz. :

    I remember when I was in Britain that I quickly noticed how filthy the tube was. Then I read some snarky piece in the paper by Thatcher, as she justified eliminating the tube maintenance, that "We British are not the Germans(Madame, no one was making that grotesque error in judgement), we don't have to eat off the subway platforms"-------------6 months later one of the tube routes spontaneously combusted from all the filth and quite a number of people died.....................

    What were the economic conditions at that time in England? Similar to BHO recently cancelling White House tours because of the sequester? Leaders sometimes do things that mystify the public, I guess.

    And yet she famously did business with Gorbachev. I'll have to see whether I can find some reference to the episode you describe.
