Margaret Thatcher (My 2nd Favorite Female PM) Was Born This Day, 92 Years Ago; October 13, 1925. (It Was Not A Friday).

Having, as a student, led a protest march against her I became one of the staunchest supporters as I aged — and started making some ‘serious money’! Yes, I was an out-and-our Conservative by the time I was in my mid-20s.

She was a GREAT Lady.

The 5th female Prime Minister.

I never realized that she was ‘that’ old, i.e., born 1925.

She will be remembered. She did some good things. Got me into the stock market — if nothing else. {Smile}

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

hjby Anura Guruge


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.

From the Wikipedia post as above. The ‘Blue’ was Thatcher’s Conservative Party. It was pretty much a landslide. I voted in ‘West End’ — to the NE of Southampton. I marked it on the map. It was a pretty BLUE area. {SMILE}


 

I do remember this. It was a big day. I voted. Made sure I did. Those days I never missed a chance to vote.

Wow. 38- years ago. Seems like a long time ago.

THANK YOU Mrs. Thatcher. You were great.
