Maggie Streep

Guido is late to this, but quite a stunning resemblance:

As His Grace said, probably as close to the truth as the film will get…

      Today? FFS every day on here is a Thatcher love in!

      The smell of stale bodily fluids on the keyboards of the regulars must be truly appalling.

    is this an advert for Dulcoease?

      is Dulcoease right for me? says:

      Dulcoease may be a good choice for you if you are straining when going to the loo, and/or there is a change in consistency of your stool

      It can also be used if you’re suffering from haemorrhoids, or from anal fissures which may be due to straining when going to the loo. It can help to ease the pain and discomfort when you go to the loo, and can be used alongside pain-relieving haemorrhoid treatment.

      • 74
        the need for speed says:

        Dulcolax Suppositories are fast acting so they can be used in specific circumstances when almost immediate action is required. They are often used by the elderly and there is a Dulcolax Suppository for Children

    Totty Watch? says:

    Are you kidding?

    Maybe for the decrepit, bloated, living in the past, dyed in the wool Tory wankers on here but no red blooded male would get even a semi at the sight of Mrs T surely?

    Oh maybe that murderous dictator Pinochet, who’s seemingly OK cos Maggie had the hots for him.

      When legend becomes fact...print the legend says:

      You are of course commenting on the Lady as she is to-day in her 80′s and let’s face it none of us are at our best as we approach the evening of our lives….

      However much the left try and denigrate her…….. Mrs T was one of the greatest British leaders of the 20th Century and was instrumental in changing Britain forever. She was even responsible for the genesis of “New Labour” and the lurch of the Labour Party to the centre ground of British politics away from the failed socialist policies of the left

      But having said all that she was of her time much as Churchill was in WW2 but was the right person in the right place at the right time in history for Britain. At the height of her powers no politician in the UK or elsewhere came close to her

    I doubt that La Streep will be 10% as good as Patricia Hodge was in the Falklands Play.

    Tatty watch says:

    Sorry but Streep just looks like a hideous version of herself. Is it too late to give the part to Grayson Perry?

      Critical Bill says:

      Too airbrushed – the real Mrs T. had a coarser, provincial face that years of toil in the backbenches did nothing to improve.

    You just know there’s a ‘Devil Wears Prada’ angle to this somewhere.

    The Lady's Not For Turning says:

    This film will be a left wing hatchet job. These fools cannot stand the fact that Lady thatcher transformed this country from a 3-day week shithole ruled by union barons, with uncompetitive nationalised industries, and an unmotivated workforce. Indeed, they rejoice at the fact that the labour government spent more than a decade trying to undo her work.

    • 95
      jgm2 says:

      They did a fucking thorough job destroying the country in a decade if I may say so.

        Down With Brown! says:

        Hollywood and the west end luvies hate Thatcher because she stood up for ordinary hard-working people against the lazy liberal/socialist elite.

    A world first !
    the words stunning and mrs thatcher used in one sentence

    Down With Brown! says:

    I bet you Hollywood won’t be making a film about Gordon Brown in 20 years time, unless it is a cheap tacky horror flick.

    Muscular Mac says:

    A bit more attractive than the real thing. Like an Airbrushed Thatcher.

    Handycock says:

    I would give her one and would have given Thatcher one, but every time I tried to chat her up, she called me a ‘pervy Oik.’

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
