Baroness Thatcher Dies: All Good Things Come To An End!

IT was all smiles from the gaffer in our electric department at Holcroft Castings & Forgings, the morning that Thatcher and the Tories won the election in 1979.  As things turned out it was a turning point for British trade unionism from which they have never recovered.  We learn that despite the protests of some on the left that there will be a ceremonial funeral with military honours at St. Paul's Cathedral.  Now where did I put that bottle of Champagne?
