When Thatcher died I partied gleefully in Trafalgar Square but most of the country didn’t share my sentiments and Thatcher would today be high up in most lists of the best prime ministers of the last century. She was buried with her much wanted ‘legacy’ intact. She was dead but she was not downfallen. Now however her downfall may be at hand.
She may well be seen in history as the Prime Minister who presided over not so much a cabinet as a criminal conspiracy. Today Operation YEWTREE would be knocking on the door of the Ritz and carting her off to a jail sentence.
Thatcher was wilfully blind to what was obvious around her and therefore let it continue. She stuck her head in the sand. Soon they’ll be removing her portrait from Tory clubs countrywide and pulping the hagiographies. She may have to be disinterred and moved to a landfill site. Any volunteers.
