Re: Glenda Jackson on Margaret Thatcher


Hey Chris,

Jackson is feisty and articulate. I loved the way she kept right on talking over all the boos and boo-hoo-hoos. Guess everyone wanted her to cowtow to the usual protocol: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Is the Iron Lady's rep really so fragile that a few heartfelt words spoken against her is going to tarnish it in the minds of her supporters or change anyone's mind about her, either way?

hi Kat,

From what I've seen of MP's behavior (which isn't a whole lot) the give-and-take can get very lively. Did you watch the little bit at the end of Ms. Jackson's speech? Some pompous MP objected to her comments on the grounds that the purpose of this was to pay tribute to the baroness. He was swiftly and emphatically shot down by whoever was holding the gavel.

Fascinatin' I knew Glenda Jackson gave up film and theater for politics but had kind of lost track of her. Rock on, Glenda!

I had forgotten about Ms. Jackson. What an extraordinary spirit.
