Thatcher Gets Thrashing During House of Commons ‘Tribute Session’

Now then, now then…

As the gushing tributes to Margaret Thatcher continue on through the week, a recent ‘tribute’ session in the British House of Commons saw MP Glenda Jackson from Hackney, East London (herself an arch-socialist), go for the posthumous jugular, ripping the final veneers off of the Iron Lady’s chequered (don’t mention her close friend Jimmy Savile OBE here) political career.

Somewhat detached from the true public mood, Tory bench-warmers were visibly upset during the exchange, as they had hoped for an outpouring of love for the late Prime Minister but instead got just the opposite which puts Thatcher’s legacy into question… based on demonstrations around UK, the popular consensus this week being that she was ‘on the wrong side of history’. 

One wonders if Tony Blair will one day receive similar retrospectives for his sparkling political career.

Watch here…


.
It’s perhaps too painful to revisit at least one unredacted loving correspondence between the late Baroness Thatcher and Sir Jimmy Savile OBE – a letter recently declassified on FOI from the National Archives in Kew, West London.

From the Mail: “The letter, part of a Savile file released under the 30-year rule by the National Archives at Kew today, reveals how well-connected to the establishment he was… But parts of some exchanges between Savile and Mrs Thatcher were censored in October this year – eight days after claims that he had sexually abused people surfaced in an ITV documentary.”

Read it for yourself…



Why were Savile and Thatcher so close?

What could a Prime Minister and an insatiable criminal like Savile possibly have in common that would allow him to be her private guest at Chequers Court – the country house retreat of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom – over so many Christmas holidays?

Now then, now then…
