Iron Lady autograph.

Postby Dave_Holden » Sun Jun 10, 2018 3:42 pm

Margaret Thatcher signed her book "Statecraft" in person for me a few years back. I met her in a bookshop in Windsor. I am from her home town Grantham, when I told her this her reply was:

"Are they still talking about doing something with their lives, but never actually doing it".

Love her or hate her, she had backbone and changed British politics for ever. For me she damaged many communities in the UK and too much way to quick.

I have no idea what the book is worth now, guess it will go up in value as she is no longer around. She is massively popular in Hungary as she was so outspoken against the Soviet regime.

Worth £100 to £250 on ABE Books Dave. Not rare as 41 signed copies available but still a collectors item. :thumbsup:

She isn't very popular in Liverpool...

I despise her and every thing she stood for.

She's not popular virtually anywhere outside London, especially if you were in any kind of union :-q

I have many signed books on my shelf, all signed when I was lucky enough to meet the person at the time. I will sort out a few more photos :thumbsup:

I'm not that well versed in British politics but is it correct to say that Thatcher was the leader of the same party as Winston Churchill? The Conservative Party. Regards Mark

Thats correct Mark - Conservative Party. Churchill actually started as member of the Liberals but changed to Conservative early in his career.
