    Default Thatcher: "The Irish are all liars"

    Thatcher:

    “Although I helped to organise the Labour Party’s opposition to her policies throughout the 1980s, I only ever met her once. It was the day I was appointed Northern Ireland secretary and our paths crossed,” he said.
    “She came up to me and she said, ‘I’ve got one thing to say to you, my boy ... you can’t trust the Irish, they are all liars’, she said, ‘liars, and that’s what you have to remember, so just don’t forget it.' With that she waltzed off and that was my only personal exposure to her.”
    I wonder what Lucinda Creighton and Alan Shatter, both staunch Thatcher supporters in recent days, have to make of this??

    Her grandchildren are brought up in the US, she hardly saw them and I think her children are in South Africa and Switzerland.

    Her granddaughter Amanda is pretty hot:

    How many "ordinary" Irish people did she have dealings with?

    She was clearly referring to Irish politicians,

    So she is 100% correct,

    Her granddaughter is very hot. Is she Carol or Mark's kid? Why didn't one of them do the reading instead?

    Weren't Thatcher's children originally adopted - but were sent back!

    Well she had a point, and before any panties get twisted i would think it is fair to assume by ALL she meant both 'sides' in n.i...
