Thatcher

It's long overdue that I actually type something up here - I find it difficult to believe that it's been almost four months since I last had anything to say worth saying.

Anyway, Thatcher. I've already said anything I could possibly say about her at a more appropriate time - i.e. when she was still alive. All I can add now is that, a few years ago, a commentator said of New Zealand's then Prime Minister that she was "no Margaret Thatcher". Since then, I've been using that as a textbook example of "praising with faint damnation".
