"In the UK our only female Prime Minister was an excellent politician and Stateswoman, "
And a more- or-less self-confessed fascist who fought and managed to keep a mass murdering war criminal from standing trial and declared his actions in Chile to be her kind of democracy.
When Pinochet was held under house arrest in London, awaiting the outcome of an attempt to put him on trail for the mass murder of his opponents in Chile, she accused the then Government who detained him of "running a police state", and she and her Tory colleagues held a rally in his support - the platform was decked with crossed Chilean and British flags - Chile was, by this time, a fascist state - an "excellent politician and Stateswoman" to some shades of political opinion maybe!!
One can see the parallels between Thatcher and Trump is one looks hard enough (though personally, I prefer the 'uncooked doughnut' resemblance to Boris Johnson
