      The nickname(s) isatelling place to start…The ‘Iron Lady’ it served to draw on the feminist vote (…fresh,innovative…etc), ‘mother’ the rest of the vote and ‘seduce’ government ministers and officials;a’tough-talking’ woman breaking the stereotypes, exploiting masculine overtones to sell and impose legislation that might have labelledamale politicianadictator, enabling the greatest transfer of public wealth to the private sector in modern decades.
      Excessive self-esteem,asnippy rather plain featured woman who probably discovered there was considerable flattery (at the least) to be enjoyed from rich men in suits-if one parroted the statements ‘We need nuclear weapons because having them makes peace more secure!’ /policies/books (not Orwell, of course) that they gave her. And there was the dominatrix aspect, the S&M overtones of the late period of the ‘Iron Lady’ that many conservative males (parliamentary and otherwise) were flirting with-the total package. And behind her? Rupert Murdock, et cetera. The so-called ‘Iron Lady’ (sorry Meryl) wasatool, like anyone with suchanickname.

      The nickname(s) is a telling place to start…’The Iron Lady’, it served to draw the feminist vote in (…fresh/innovative, etc), ‘mother’ the rest of the vote and ‘seduce’ government ministers and officials; a ‘tough-talking’ woman breaking the stereotypes, exploiting masculine overtones to sell and impose legislation that might have labelled a male politician a dictator, enabling the greatest transfer of public wealth to the private sector in modern decades.
      Excessive self esteem, a snippy rather plain-featured woman who probably discovered there was considerable flattery (at the least) to be enjoyed from the ‘men in suits’ - if one parroted the statements/policies/books (not Orwell, of course) that they gave her. Needless to say many conservative males (parliamentary or otherwise) also enjoyed the S&M overtones of the late period ‘Iron Lady’ - the total package. And behind her?…Rupert Murdock, et cetera. The so-called ‘Iron Lady’ (sorry Meryl) was a tool. Like anyone with such a nickname.
