Going going gone

Theresa May ends her premiership as she began it.. with the UK still hopelessly entwined with the European Union.

The Prime Minister has just announced, she will step down on Friday 7th June.  She can expect an amazing send-off as American President Donald Trump will be in the UK on a state visit from June 3rd to June 5th.   We are sure he will have some kind words to say, and won't make the "L" for loser sign at her at all!

Good bye Theresa.  So long and thanks for all the fish.

Pomp and Ceremony as POTUS arrives

The 45th President of the United States of America, touched down in England today at the start of his 4 day visit to Great Britain.

President Turmp and the First Lady were treated to a full Military Guard as they arrived this evening for a meal with the Prime Minister at Blenheim Palace.

Tomorrow the President will meet Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth for afternoon Tea at Windsor Castle.   We hope he will be on time and knows not to touch the Queen!

Welcome to the UK, Mr President.

Margaret Thatcher

Former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher died today aged 87.

She was Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990.

For those who had a few pounds she turned it into a fortune for them.  For those working in the industries she took their few pounds and turned it into pennies for them.

She sold off British Rail, British Telecom, The Electricity Board and all the Council Houses.  If you were in the right place at the right time during the boom years you would love her.   If you were in mining, nursing and many other public industries, you would probably loathe her.

Loved and loathed in equal quantities, Lady Thatcher put the Great back in Britain and for a brief time the UK was once again, at the centre of the world stage.

The marble statue we are exhibiting in London City hit the headlines in 1999 when a vandal used a cricket bat to knock her head off, saying "I think she looks better like that".

A bronze statue of Margaret Thatcher will be placed
in permanent memorium in The Houses Of Parliament in London City 3, where hopefully it will remain contraversial as the great lady herself was.

London City - The Houses of Parliament, not out of a box.
