Hepburn calls for Thatcher’s removal

with 5 comments

Stephen HepburnJarrow MP behind the times again.

Conservative Home reports that Jarrow MP Stephen Hepburn wants the removal of Mrs. Thatcher’s statue from the Member’s Lobby, once again reflecting a distinct attachment to a “time warp” in the past.

Perhaps he is more upset at seeing a reminder of political change that was real, radical, necessary, and built the foundations upon which the NuLabour machine was built. No doubt he too, like Tony Blair, stayed away from the unveiling of the statue to the one who put the “great” back into Britain!

It must be terrible having her looking down on him every time he passes by!

We’re all ears!
