The Iron (young) Lady before she swept to power
SHE was the greengrocer's daughter who grew up to be the Iron Lady. Long before the steely, groomed appearance and coiffered hair for which she became famous as Britain's first female prime minister there was a young woman who would think nothing of donning an apron and sweeping up at her father's store in the Lincolnshire town of Grantham.

Should we be grateful then that our bygone Prime Minister was willing to lower herself such as to don an apron and sweep up at her father's store? The woman was a saint! What a load of utter and absolute rubbish, to use the polite words! Any daughter of a greengrocer would have done the same, and much much more! It seems as if being famous and/or rich in this country these days means you automatically become some sort of a saint, regardless of what damage you may or may not have done (definitely did, as far as I'm concerned!)while you were of a young age and in a position of power. It seems to me that these days, all the old values have, to a great extent, gone flying out the window, and have been replaced by nothing basically because in my opinion, the people who wield any power in this country, through status, and/or wealth, and in particular, the ones governing the country, at the moment (a very small moment, hopefully!) do not have any old-fashioned values at all and the pursuit of money seems to be their only God.
