The ‘Iron’ Lady

Thatcher’s nickname, the Iron Lady, has been totally misconstrued, according to newly released Cabinet documents. The newly released documents were forced to be released under the 30-year act, or something of a similar name (apparently Parliament have a imagination barrier). The documents show that after a total refurbishment of £2,000 to the Downing Street flat, Thatcher begged, argued even, to pay for a £19 ironing board, hence the name Iron Lady. It’s rather IRONic that she was willing to pay such a small expense; the documents released show that she had the carpets seamed, a chair cleaned, the crockery replaced and other things. It seems like they didn’t actually refurbish the flat at all, what they really did was clean a few bits and bobs and kept it secret for 30 years because, after all, there’s nothing you can do about it now.

I just wanted to make it perfectly clear that her name is IRONic. She came and tried to straighten out the creases of the British society and ended up doing nothing but putting a good old stain that can’t be removed. Well done, Thatcher! Good on you!

Refurbishment used in the loosest sense of the word.
