‘How Many Mrs Thatchers are there’ I asked
‘Oh, three at least’, she responded in a low, confiding voice: ‘there is the intellectual one, the intuitive one and the one at home.’

Published near eighteen years ago ‘Memories of Maggie’ is a collection of recollections from half a page to five that holds a particular bias towards Thatcherism or in some cases just Thatcher.
Don’t look here for an easy read; the ‘memories’ are disjointed with no strong structure and a varied capability when it comes to

A rather random collection of anecdotes and memories about Margaret Thatcher. These range from "I met her just once, but I'll never forget that she actually talked to me" to "I knew her for twenty years, she is the greatest". Unsurprisingly, most of these tidbits come from people who support(ed) Maggie, and the voice of opposition is rarely heard.

Contains a few good ones, but overall nothing special.
