    Which I didn't think was very good, unless it was intentionally made from the pov of the elderly Thatcher as she experienced brief moments of lucidity in recalling her life in-between long stretches of hallucinatory dementia.

    I guess this is sort of like when Nixon and Reagan died. You're supposed to say something nice and pretend to not know what they were really like. Ok, she was the first female prime minister of the UK and one tough cookie who led her country through a tough era as she saw fit.

    There, was that nice?

    God save you Maggie. Perhaps only she can.
