Maggie Statue Formally Unveiled

After surviving three vandalism attacks in the last two weeks, Maggie’s statue in her hometown of Grantham was formally unveiled this afternoon. So far, the statue has been pelted with eggs, doused in paint, and covered in coffee. Still it survives. By coincidence, 1922 committee chair Sir Graham Brady sat in the audience. All smiles, giving away nothing…

Government Supportive of a ‘Margaret Thatcher Day’

Kemi Badenoch dropped a major hint that we could soon get an official Margaret Thatcher day. Responding to a question from Sheryll Murray asking for one, equalities minister Badenoch replied:

“I would personally be very supportive of a Margaret Thatcher day, though I think that is more a question from the Prime Minister than myself.” 

Guido has asked No. 10 for their view…

Murray’s question seems perfectly sound. Down in the Falklands the residents are proud celebrators of Maggie, celebrating Margaret Thatcher Day every January 10th, with a bust and even Thatcher Drive in capital Stanley. There’s a template and no reason not to, let’s get it sorted ahead of next January…

Truss in Moscow Emulates Maggie to a T

Liz Truss is in Moscow and in the Guy newsroom we were betting this morning that she would cosplay Maggie once again. In Liz we trust and she never lets us down: the outfit she is wearing perfectly reprises Margaret Thatcher’s outfit worn to Moscow in 1987. Though Guido can’t imagine Maggie wearing faux fur…

She met with her Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov to discuss the situation in Ukraine. Striking an Iron Lady-ish tone she warned

“I’m visiting Moscow to urge Russia to pursue a diplomatic solution and make clear that another Russian invasion of a sovereign state would bring massive consequences for all involved. Russia has a choice here. We strongly encourage them to engage, de-escalate and choose the path of diplomacy.”

Really do think a brooch would just have set off the outfit perfectly…

Molly-Mae’s Not-Quite Apology

After relentless complaining from Twitter and the media, Love Island star and Thatcherite girl boss Molly-Mae Hague has released another statement clarifying her recent comments on hard work and aspiration. Looks like her team’s efforts to put this story to bed on Friday didn’t quite work… 

On Instagram this afternoon, Hague put out something of an apology:

“I wanted to come back online today as normal but I feel like before I do I just wanted to say this. When I say or post anything online, it is never with malice or ill intent. I completely appreciate that things can affect different people in different ways, however I just want to stress that I would never intend to hurt or upset anyone by anything that I say or do.

“I apologise to the people that have been affected negatively or misunderstood the meaning of what I said in the podcast, the intentions of the podcast were only ever to tell my story and inspire from my own experience.”

Apologising to those who ‘misunderstood the meaning’ of what she said is perfect politician-speak while not backing down from her original beliefs. This lady is still not for turning…

Love Island’s New Thatcherite Role Model

Twitter-obsessed co-conspirators may have noticed the name “Molly-Mae Hague” trending today, as the former Love Island winner gets slammed by left-wing whingers for her comments on aspiration and hard work. Speaking on a podcast the Pretty Little Things creative director espoused:

“I just think you’re given one life and it’s down to you what you do with it. You can literally go in any direction.”

“When I’ve spoken in the past I’ve been slammed a little bit, with people saying, ‘It’s easy for you to say that, you’ve not grown up in poverty, you’ve not grown up with major money struggles. So for you to sit there and say we all have the same 24 hours in a day is not correct.”

Naturally Molle Mae’s belief that individuals are responsible for their own lot in life, and that hard work can improve one’s life, have outraged the left, branding her “gross” and “tone deaf” and even “a little mini-Thatcher girl boss”:

Guido thinks 2022 could actually be the year of the “Thatcher Girl Boss”  …

Radio 4 Read Out Poem Equating Thatcherism to the Holocaust and Cancer

The BBC’s impartiaility drive seemingly doesn’t apply to the lefty ‘artistic’ drivel that Radio 4 comes out with, not least Today’s Thought for the Day segment, which would often sit perfectly well as a Labour Party press release. Earlier this month the channel broadcast a particularly egregious example of left-wing bias, during a show called Something Understood. The following poem was read out:

“Aberfan, multiple sclerosis, spastics and the Somme. Bloody mysterious.

Cancer, Culloden, famine and President Botha. Weird.

Motorway pileups, cot deaths and Hiroshima. A trifle peculiar.

Schizophrenia, Zeebrugge, Thatcherism and Belsen. Damn strange.

Aids, Ulster, Strokes, carboard city and of course the human being. Is he worth an hour on Sunday? Surely not.”

The poem clearly listed examples of the world’s most evil and tragic phenomena and events. Why was Thatcherism included directly next to Belsen and not, more relevantly, Nazism, Stalinism or Maoism that between them killed tens upon tens of millions? That will be one for the BBC editorial team to justify…
