“On Tuesday night, at a Spectator readers’ evening, Andrew Neil interviewed me about my biography of Margaret Thatcher. He asked me if, after leaving office, Lady Thatcher had come to the view that Britain should leave the European Union. I said yes (I think it happened after the Maastricht Treaty in 1992), although advisers had persuaded her that she should not say this in public since it would have allowed her opponents to drive her to the fringes of public life.” ( from the article )
Margaret Thatcher was one of my heroes. I admired her so much because as a woman she was able to break through and able to hold Political Office. It is very hard for a woman to make it in a man’s world. Many people still believe Politics should be men only. She was a great Conservative Lady who many in the world respected, even if they didn’t agree with her, they respected her courage and strength.
I never had a chance to meet her in person and talk to her about issues, so I don’t know first hand how she felt about the EU. I do know one thing, she would be worried about Isis and the Islamic State who want to destroy us and the WEST. WE ARE FIGHTING ANOTHER WORLD WAR even though it hasn’t been declared yet. We as CONSERVATIVES need to focus on helping David Cameron and the Government DEFEAT ISIS who has threaten to come to the UK and attack us. They have threaten to come to Buckingham Palace. As a British Monarchist I take that threat to heart as would Mrs. Thatcher.
THOSE CONSERVATIVES WHO ARE THREATENING TO ACT AGAINST OUR LEADER, ASK YOURSELF DOES DIVISION MAKE US STRONGER AND SAFER? OR DOES IT MAKE US WEAKER BECAUSE WE ARE FIGHTING AMONG OURSELVES INSTEAD OF PREPARING TO FIGHT THEM?
She like my other hero Winston Churchill were true CONSERVATIVES and like me not afraid to stand up to protect the Queen and Union Jack from all enemies who seek to harm us.
WAR is coming. IF WE DON’T FIGHT ISIS AND THE ISLAMIC STATE WE ARE FINISHED. THAT IS THE REALITY OF THE SITUATION. ISIS IS MORE OF AN ENEMY THEN THE EU. WE ARE GOING TO NEED THEM IN THIS FIGHT AGAINST ISIS AND ALL WHO WANT TO HARM US. THEY ARE GOING TO NEED US. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO WORK WITH RUSSIA TOO.
Even if we leave the EU, we have got to work with them. We can not isolate ourselves and think we can defeat the Islamic State by ourselves.
The Conservative Party has a real chance to make gains. I do know she would not like the in fighting and the threats made to get our own way. We need to put what is best for the nation over our personal gains.
