The Thatcher Legend
A co-conspirator emails to point out the still continuing obssession with Maggie. Despite the fact that first-time voters at the next election will not have even been born during the Thatcher years, the legend lives on.
The co-conspirator points to the word-count in the papers for last week alone:
The Times – 3 Thatchers, 1 Thatcherite
Daily Telegraph – 13 Thatchers, 0 Thatcherites
FT – 8 Thatchers, 0 Thatcherites
The Independent – 12 Thatchers, 0 Thatcherites
The Guardian – 31 Thatchers, 5 Thatcherites
Guardianistas still can’t get over her, can they?
Guido feels we are about due a Thatcher revival, Brit Art trendies will soon no doubt be wearing ironic Thatcher T-shirts around Hoxton Square. Thatcher is surely due to become “cool” in 2007.
