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…

      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.

      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

    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.
