Plenty of work for Knacker of the Yard.
And, of course, we must not forget the very close links to some Saudi princes that enabled her feeble-minded son to become a multi-millionaire.
How can people have revered this woman? It baffles me.
Most of the changes her government brought in were rescinded when they proved to be flops.
And telling me that Labour were just as bad cuts no ice - I have no time for any of the rotten, corrupt, snouts-in-the-trough bunch. There are a few honourable exceptions, many of whom can be identified by seeing who claimed what expenses.

And people ask why I am so cynical - it's called experience.
