Wishing Maggie Thatcher a speedy recovery

It is fashionable to mock ex-PM Margaret Thatcher, some tweeters apparently obscenely wish her dead. As for Silvio Berlusconi in Italy, it is sometimes best to look at the individual's record in office and at the possible motivations of those who condemn them in such an irrational manner.

I returned from tax exile in the USA when Thatcher was first elected in the UK and stayed almost until the very end when it became clear her enemies were too well entrenched.

My guess is that history will determine she was almost alone among post-war 20th century Premiers of Britain who acted almost entirely in the nation's interests.

Well said, Mr Cole. I endorse your comments about Mrs Thatcher, the best PM this country has seen in my 5 decades watching politics.
