Thread Name: BS: Margaret Thatcher's Birthday-13 Oct 1925
Subject: RE: BS: Margaret Thatcher's Birthday.
Wasn't George Brown Dolly MacLennan's husband? And the late Gordon Brown was a great second row for Scotland and the Lions.

My point about majorities was one that Thatcher herself brought up, when she changed the traditionally accepted meaning of "majority" specially for the first Scottish devolution referendum.

I said at the time she was first elected as Prime Minister, that although she didn't understand Parliamentary Democracy, she was an expert at manipulating the system!
