N ews of Margaret Thatcher's death this morning instantly and predictably gave rise to righteous sermons on the evils of speaking ill of her. Former Tory MP Louise Mensch, with no apparent sense of irony, invoked precepts of propriety to announce : "Pygmies of the left so predictably embarrassing yourselves, know this: not a one of your leaders will ever be globally mourned like her. This demand for respectful silence in the wake of a public figure's death is not just misguided but dangerous. That one should not speak ill of the dead is arguably appropriate when a private person dies, but it is wildly inappropriate for the death of a controversial public figure, particularly one who wielded ificant influence and political power.

And having already tackled nuclear war in the most devastating book of my childhood, When the Wind Blows, he was ready to take on the woman who appeared to be leading us towards the Third World War.

There were two giants, larger-than-life and both fresno california woman seeking free fuck puffed up with their own pride and vanity. One, Galtieri, the President of Argentina, had been called a 'tin-pot general' and the other, Margaret Thatcher, was nicknamed the iron lady, which suggested they were both made of metal.

The opening sets up the lead characters as grotesque and gargantuan metal monsters, dripping casual dating ca stockton 95210, leaking money and shooting fire out of their tits. The first half is totally berserk, and very reminiscent of Ralph Steadman.

In fact it has a pedigree going right back to the beginning of satire. The images of Galtieri and Thatcher leading boatlo of tiny soldiers towards each other is something Swift could have come up with for Gulliver's Travels.

The total insanity, and unabashed grotesquery of Briggs' Thatcher is something Gillray would have been proud of. Along with chinese dating uk trademark pearl earrings, stockings and suspenders, Thatcher wears 'shoes like the Wicked Witch of the West, and a similarly destructive fury'.

Raymond Briggs was clearly aware of the massive disconnect between the glorious find local dandridge tn sluts of The Snowman and the horror depicted in the Iron Woman.
