(satire – or is it?)

There has been some criticism levelled about the extent and length of time MPs have spent mass debating in parliament over the former prime minister Lady Thatcher.

Both the House of Lords and the House of Commons had been recalled from recess but critics said the seven hours spent by MPs gushing and spouting over the former prime minister was too much, compared to the mere 63 minutes devoted to mutual dissemination over former prime minister, Edward Heath, after his death in 2005.

Prime Minister David Cameron however took little time in coming to his climax when he lauded Lady Thatcher as a woman who made Britain great again, saying:

They say ‘cometh the hour, cometh the man’. Well, in 1979, came the hour and came the lady. And what better way for us to honour her, than by doing exactly the same?
