Quote of the Day

"The basis to Thatcherism - and this is where I come to the spiritual part of what I regard as the desperate, desperately wrong track that Thatcherism took this country into - was that everything I had been taught to regard as a vice - and I still regard them as vices - under Thatcherism was in fact a virtue: greed, selfishness, no care for the weaker, sharp elbows, sharp knees. They were the way forward."  --  British actress and Member of Parliament Glenda Jackson setting the record straight on Margaret Thatcher's political legacy.  Here are more of her remarks on video.  Sounds like it could be used as a critique of Reaganism, too.
