The Iron Lady's Sex Appeal

In the preemie days of the Internet, I edited a (now defunct) Washington publication called The Women's Quarterly, published by The Independent Women's Forum.

Protest songs thrive on combat. Complicated policy details may cause the songwriter's pen to freeze but larger-than-life politicians who polarise opinion enable the ink to flow. It is striking that, despite all the frustration and ferment of the punk era, nobody wrote a memorable song about Jim Callaghan.

Thatcher, Chandraswami and I

How a future Prime Minister of Britain warmed to the godman with an Indian diplomat playing the reluctant translator India House is among the better known diplomatic establishments in London. I first set eyes on the imposing building in 1952, when I was a student at Cambridge University.

What Margaret Thatcher Can Teach Hillary Clinton

The same willpower which enabled her to make significant changes in Britain was energetically applied to the wider world.

She made many of us feel unwelcome in our own land | The Times

(£) The sour, sectarian side of Mrs Thatcher obscured the fact she was often right It was one thing to be doing the Thatchering, it was another to be the Thatched. I was 24 when Maggie became PM, 36 when she departed, and most of that time felt like a stranger in my own country.

For Margaret Thatcher, few tears shed in South Africa

The late British prime minister once labeled Nelson Mandela's political group a terrorist organization. Three years after Thatcher left office, Mandela became South Africa's first black president.

Anti-Thatcher animus speaks volumes about the isolation and insignificance of the modern Left - Telegraph Blogs

Nothing reveals the impotence of the modern Left more than its anti-Thatcherism. Some will be tempted to see the misjudged joy being expressed by some Leftists today in response to Baroness Thatcher's death as evidence that the Left remains a cocky, swaggering force, always ready to declare class war, even on a day when an [...]
