Margaret Thatcher - Grocers Daughter To Iron Lady

The 4th May 2019 should be marked by a public holiday in Great Britain, but it will be treated as a day of mourning by the hate filled Left who will be triggered by the very thought of the 40th anniversary of Margaret Thatcher coming to power.

Instead of acknowledging her monumental achievements the anniversary will most likely be marked with derision and exaggerated stories about her divisiveness and supposed cold hearted disregard for the poor and downtrodden.

The media and the hate filled Left will play down or ignore the fact that she became the first female leader of the Conservative Party and the first female Prime Minister in what was then the male dominated world of politics.

With one notable exception she was universally derided by all the institutions and influential power groups of the day including trade union leaders, feminists, socialists, communists, the media, the acting fraternity and the Russians along with their Eastern European slave states locked behind the Iron Curtain.

One of her most ardent critics and enemies was the European Economic Community (EEC) and its adherents. The EEC was the forerunner to the European Union of today and it was Margaret Thatcher that exposed to the public the secret nation building agenda of the Europhiles. 

The one notable exception to the universal derision was ‘the people’. The British electorate from all sections of society voted her into office in three consecutive general elections and she may have won a fourth but for the backstabbing Europhiles in her own party who removed her in a coup d’état to prevent their nation building project from being derailed.

Mrs. Thatcher took over the Premiership when Great Britain had declined from an industrial and military powerhouse into a nation bankrupted and demoralized by years of socialist mismanagement. Known as the sick man of Europe, British industry and public life was at the mercy of the trade union barons who brought the country to a standstill time and again in order to further their socialist agenda.

Against the odds, and armed with her uncompromising belief in both the British people and capitalism, Mrs. Thatcher took them all on and won. The trade union barons were put back in their boxes with a consequent recovery of industry and the economy.

As a result of Mrs. Thatcher’s free market reforms, deadbeat, inefficient, tax guzzling industries were privatized allowing the working class to become share-holders in their companies and proud property owners instead of tenants.

During her tenure, and in concert with her soul mate, Ronald Reagan, the Berlin Wall fell along with the Soviet Union empire and millions of enslaved citizens of Europe were liberated from the shackles of socialism/communism tasting freedom for the first time in a generation. The younger generation of the enslaved Eastern European nations tasted freedom for the first time ever.     

Mrs. Thatcher was a titan on the domestic and global political scene, she was fearless and indefatigable, earning herself the title of the Iron Lady by which she is still known today.     

What President Trump is going through today Mrs. Thatcher went through 40 years ago. Universal condemnation from the left and the media accompanied by vilification, insults and personal attacks against her and her family.

In October 1984 she narrowly survived an assassination attempt by the Irish Republican Army (IRA) which killed five Conservative Party colleagues and injured thirty-one. One of those killed was a fellow Member of Parliament.

As a message to the terrorists and her enemies, and as a measure of her courage and determination not to let the terrorists claim a propaganda victory, she carried on regardless with her itinerary.

In a message to the world that under her Premiership Great Britain is not to be messed with, the Iron Lady sent a task force half way around the world to reclaim the Falkland Islands after the invasion by the Argentinian military junta.

Much to the chagrin of the Great Britain hating Left, Mrs. Thatcher’s supreme confidence in the bravery, professionalism and dedication of the British military forces she united the entire nation behind her Falklands endeavor.

Under her leadership losing the Falklands war was never an option. If the Labour Party had been in power they would have surrendered the Islanders to the blood-soaked military junta regardless of their desire to remain British.

As a matter of interest, they also planned to sell out the British citizens of Gibraltar along with other British overseas territories and the Northern Irish, but I digress.

Her legacy of liberty, free enterprise, prosperity and national pride has been squandered by a treacherous political class more dedicated to globalism, supranational government and collectivism regardless of its deleterious effect on the nation and its morale.

Compared to the Iron Lady all successive Prime Ministers have been a collection of spineless cowards, pathological liars and treasonous Quislings whose loyalty is to the European Union and its project to fully integrate Great Britain into a centrally controlled United States of Europe.

Known as the grey man, John Major was the chosen front man for coup plotters. He was a fanatical Europhile who signed the Maastricht Treaty in 1992 without holding the referendum he promised. This was the Treaty that deceptively changed the European common market project from an economic and zero tariff-based project to the nation building political union we see today.

The grey man was followed by Tony Blair, one of the most reviled and destructive Prime Ministers in history who many believe should be charged with war crimes for his involvement in the Iraq war.

Falsely sold as a tidying up or streamlining exercise, it was Blair that signed the Amsterdam Treaty in 1997 which surrendered sovereignty over a whole range of areas from the Westminster Parliament to the bureaucrats in Brussels.

Blair and his cronies delayed the promised referendum on this treaty until 2006 by which time the damage was done. The referendum promise was quietly dropped long before then.

Next came the ignorant and economic imbecile, Gordon Brown. Not only did he wreck the private pension schemes and sell off Great Britain’s gold reserves for a song, he also signed the Lisbon Constitution/Treaty without the promised referendum.

This is the Treaty that gave the United States of Europe international legitimacy, it also surrendered what was left of Great Britain’s sovereignty.

Following Gordon Brown was the spineless, chinless wonder, David Cameron. This Prime Minister was going to re-negotiate Great Britain’s terms of membership then put these terms and continued membership before the people in a referendum.

The rest is history, he lied about his reforms and the people voted to leave. Like the coward he is, instead of implementing the result as promised, he promptly resigned leaving the door open to the fanatical Europhile, Theresa May.

She has spent her entire time in office trying to reverse the result of the referendum and keep Great Britain locked inside the EU institutions in perpetuity.

 Theresa May has capitulated to the EU bureaucrats every step of the way in a manner the Iron Lady would never countenance.

Judging by the potential leaders on offer today, Margaret Thatcher, the Iron Lady, was the last of the Churchillian Prime Ministers whose like the British people will never see again.

Memorable Thatcher quotes:

“I will always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left”.

“If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman”.

“The spirit of envy can destroy; it can never build”.

“There are still people in my party who believe in consensus politics. I regard them as Quislings, traitors……..I mean it”.

“If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn’t swim”.

“To cure the British disease with socialism is like trying to cure leukemia with leeches”.

“The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money”.


  1. I agree with every word. We need someone with her strength of purpose today, but unfortunately there's none to be found.

    1. The leadership potential in British politics is abysmal. They all seem to come from the same flawed gene pool.

      The only one I've seen sticking it to the establishment consistently is Nigel Farage but I don't think he can garner universal support.

  2. I also agree, and the USA DOES have somebody in leadership who is being attacked from all sides at all times. We need to unite and somehow quaranteen the ones who are causing our country to become a socialist 'economy'. MAGA

    1. President Trump has come along at a time when America was going down the same slippery slope to socialism as Europe.

      His willingness to take on all comers and fight for his beliefs reminds me of Margaret Thatcher.

      For what its worth he has my support. #MAGA.
