Thatcher is Back!

thatcherbackA Law Society backed initiative called ‘The First 100 Years’  published a timeline celebrating the achievements of women connected to the law profession.  The list included former solicitor Nicola Sturgeon, Shami Chakrabarti and Guido’s favourite, Baroness Scotland. As Guido reported two weeks ago a certain female Tory barrister was missing. Subsequently confronted with the omission the team compiling the list has now added the first female PM to her rightful place. On the 26th anniversary of her resignation the Iron Lady is back. First Blair, now Thatcher. When will Disraeli return to the scene?

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
