Irony Of Theresa May’s Embarrassment, Margaret Thatcher Had A Landslide 34 Years & 1 DAY Ago!

June 8, 2017 vs June 9, 1983.

What a difference.


June 9, 1983 with Margaret Thatcher.

I voted, for her, in this election, in Harpenden, Herts.

June 8, 2017 with Theresa May.

Though eligible to vote, I did NOT because the U.K.
does not have a good mail-in balloting scheme.

Quite a difference. Maggie walked away with 397 seats. May has 317. That is a 80-seat difference.

To be fair Maggie had the BRILLIANT Falkland Island victory to bouy her.

Wonder if Theresa gave the June 9th date any thought when she called the election for June 8.

The Start Of What Would Be The ‘Falklands War’ Happened This Day, 35-Years Ago — March 19, 1982.

What a WAR!

It was the only war that I was totally and utterly ‘invested’ in emotionally.

I so wanted us, THE BRITS, to prevail and prevail big.

I followed every twist-and-turn, despairing when we suffered a loss and jubilant when we enjoyed a success.

The night of the victory, June 14, 1982, I was hosting a pre-arranged customer dinner (as was a part of my job) at a restaurant on the outskirts of London. It turned out to be quite the party. I was buying drinks for all. Didn’t care about the cost. I did have a ‘no questions asked’ expense account for entertainment BUT I think I paid for that money on one of my credit cards. It was well worth it.

What a glorious victory.

THANK YOU Mrs. Thatcher. You were great.
