First of all, I am referring to England and not the whole of the United Kingdom.
Most English constituencies are Conservative but listening to the BBC you would well be under the impression that this was a Socialist dominated country. The only reason Labour actually get in isn’t because of the few strongholds in the North of England, it is because of the massive Labour voters in Scotland and Wales.
And, for the sake of argument, let’s say that Baroness Margaret Thatcher is the most hated doyen of the Left. God, don’t they make a lot of noise about her. Any stranger to our shores might be excused for thinking she is the most hated person in Britain.
But is she?
A recent YouGov poll of 2018 people (most of their polls are only 1024 people, so this was a much more accurate sample) conducted a poll to find who was the most influential woman in the world.
People in the survey included Florence Nightingale, Mother Teresa, Oprah Winfrey and Kate Moss. (Kate came last with less than 1%).
However, the winner, with over 32% of the vote was Lady Margaret Thatcher, higher even than Mother Teresa.
Almost two-thirds said commitment was a vital trait, but hard work, intelligence and independence were also important considerations for this poll.
So, next time you hear some insignificant leftie, such as the Harriets of this world, scream that Thatcher was evil, recall this survey and just quietly go about your business, knowing the truth.
