Thatcher [‘s Spokesman] thrashes Obama

June 15, 2009

I for one am SHOCKED that a former Prime Minister has criticised a current President in this way

What can her motives be? Is it constructive criticism aimed at helping Obama, or is she aiming to help the Republicans win in 2012?

Update: As 2 anonymous commentors have pointed out the article I linked to is not actually by Lady Thatcher but a contributor to her website who may not even know her.
I should have made this clearer.
I now have in the title.
I think the story is still interesting, and still wonder if Thatcher will help the Republicans in the 2012 elections. Remember John McCain was photographed with her in 2008 – as was Guliani.

Speaker Poll

June 15, 2009

I’ve created a poll so readers can vote for their favourite Speaker candidate. Obviously it won’t be representative unless all M.P.s vote but it might give some idea of public opinion.

In an ideal world which candidate would you like to win the speaker election?

A historic day today as the first ever hustings for the post of Speaker of the British House of Commons were held.
I wonder how many MPs not standing as candidates attended?
