Surely Some Mistake

The Weasel as part of her campaign to keep Mrs BW and I entertained has been insisting that we ask her general knowledge questions during "tea". Having exhausted current affairs, I casually asked her who the first British woman Prime Minster was. "Thatcher" came the swift reply. As we had just done modern politically parties, I followed up with "and what political party was she leader of" She thought for a moment. "Labour" she said. There was a silence, followed by the sound of Mrs BW's jaw hitting the table.

I'd just be happy she used the correct term, 'Thatcher!', rather than the more formal and polite, 'Mrs...'

Rol - yes that's something I suppose. Mind you nowadays, Labour Conservative they are all the same!

Since Blair is her lovechild, I can see where The Weasel may have become confused

She IS a teenager, after all.

Thatcher would fit into the New Labour project wonderfully.
