The Iron Lady

It’s a strange kind of world when I come over all nostalgic for Thatcher.

The comparisons come flooding in to my mind. Why don’t American presidents – or candidates – ever face the public like this? America has lowered the bar for political competence so far that if a candidate can get through a debate without falling on her face we can declare her ready to run the country.

One day America will have a woman president, but I hope it is a competent one – even it is one that still makes me angry 25 years later.
