    Funny how the people who love Thatcherism weren't the ones who had to suffer under it. For me, I'm going to dig out my copy of Hunt Emerson's interactive graphic novel YOU ARE MAGGIE THATCHER, in which the reader "wins" by making the most nauseating political decisions possible.

    Margaret Thatcher: Death of a Class Warrior
