Thatcher keeps Queen waiting - while she blathers to a Bush ...
Mad, Mrs Maggie Thatcher made merry this Thursday night, at her 80th birthday bash.
Alas, This Old Brit wasn't asked to attend.
Maybe she'd heard he'd had a bit of health hiccup - or then again, maybe she hadn't.
Shame really, because he so wanted to meet her, shake her by the hand and thank her for past services rendered.
If it hadn't have been for her and her ignorant ilk, he may well have still been a true blue Tory -- instead of the 'traditional-not-new' Labour lad he became soon after she started serving up her own special sort of conservative crap.
And that's the truth. You'd better believe it.
She had the same effect on several other million Brits, too.
But, as they say, that's another story. So it's safely stashed away -- being saved for some special rainy day.
So for now, forget it, and simply settle for being shocked and awed by this.
Former Tory Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher has celebrated her 80th birthday with the Queen and 650 guests at a dinner in a London hotel.Can you believe it ?
Lady Thatcher looked frail as she arrived 15 minutes late - aides said she had been delayed by talking on the phone to ex-US President George Bush.
She kept her own Queen waiting while she blathered on the blower to a burned out, Bush ! ?
Charming, Margaret, darling.
Off with her head !

Then for a real 'raving' related rant by the Mirror's really left leaning Labour lad, Kevin Maguire, click the link at the end of this tasty teaser.
But be warned -- cutie pie Kevin can certainly come on strong.
The Prime Minister who gave her name to the bitter 1980s was a hateful figure.Well ? What did I tell you ?
Even as her strength wanes and the clock ticks remorselessly, we should never forget or forgive what she did to people who refused to bow the knee and how she wrecked millions of lives.
THATCHER preached harmony, yet fractured Britain into an unfairer, more divided, unjust country.
She scrapped the link between pensions and wages, plunging elderly citizens into poverty.
A hair-brained monetarist experiment allowed the pound to soar, sacrificing untold numbers of jobs. But the PM who'd claimed Labour wasn't working thought unemployment topping a record three million was a price worth paying.
Riots ripped apart Brixton and Toxteth. Working people who stood up to her were ruthlessly crushed.
Trade unions were neutered, creating a hire-and-fire economy of insecure, poorly paid McJobs.
The long pit strike, when she intervened to prevent a deal with Arthur Scargill's miners, proved what a vindictive, evil figure she was.
North Sea oil was squandered, the family silver flogged off, as gas, airlines, buses, electricity, water, steel and car industries went under the hammer in an orgy of privatisation.
The brunt was borne by communities in the industrial heartlands.
Rioting broke out over the barmy poll tax forcing dustmen to pay the same as dukes.
Even the Falklands War, which cost the lives of 250 British servicemen and was hailed by her as a triumph, was down to her inept foreign policy.
Boy, can that boy bellow.
Now go read the rest -- and enjoy!
