One of the best prime ministers this country has ever had. She had more balls than Blair, Brown, Cameron, Major, and Corbyn put together. She dragged this country out of the mire and into the modern world. So yes..a statue sounds a good idea.

@ The Greek, as is the legacy of Blair and Brown, who put the country into a near irretrievable debt when they kept buying their way back into power via all the generous public sector pay deals, and benefits, they introduced.

The legacy of Blair and Brown... which essentially is the legacy of Thatcher continued.
Thatcher didn't call Blair her greatest achievement for nothing.
And yes, Thatcheresque de-regulation followed by Gordon Brown's "light touch" in the same vain had nothing to do with the crash at all did it..
Because I despise Thatcher, why do you assume I automatically support Blair and Brown? I don't...

It's always a treat to see posts on the forum confirming studies that show right-wing opinions (including racism and homophobia) are usually held by people of lower intelligence.
'In an analysis of two large-scale, nationally representative United Kingdom data sets, we found that lower general intelligence (g) in childhood predicts greater racism in adulthood, and this effect was largely mediated via conservative ideology. A secondary analysis of a U.S. data set confirmed a predictive effect of poor abstract-reasoning skills on antihomosexual prejudice, a relation partially mediated by both authoritarianism and low levels of intergroup contact. All analyses controlled for education and socioeconomic status.'
Just say 'Thatcher' and on cue the right-wing morons begin their 'greatest prime minister... more balls than...' nonsense.

Clifford, how can you possibly say we're more likely to be homophobic when we say with pride that we prefer women with balls?
