Reclaiming Margaret Thatcher

I counted William Hague mention Mrs Thatcher eight times in his speech. The Tory high command treat Margaret Thatcher a bit like Boris Johnson’s beloved routemaster bus. She waits years for an appreciative word and then a fleet of them arrive at once.

Oh please. Do you think anyone fell for Gordon Brown sucking up to Tony Blair at the Labour conference? Everyone knows they hate each other. At least William Hague genuinely meant his appreciative words.

Don’t mention the buses!

We’re still trying to sort out the mess made when she privatized them!

And after all those warm words about her by Gordon!
