SIR, WE’VE LOST MARGARET THATCHER

Yep, even the iron Lady herself has turned on the war
in Iraq. Claims she was never for it.

"I was a scientist before I was a politician. And as a
scientist I know you need facts, evidence and proof -
and then you check, recheck and check again."

"The fact was that there were no facts, there was no
evidence, and there was no proof. As a politician the
most serious decision you can take is to commit your
armed services to war from which they may not return."

-- Margaret Thatcher


If they lost her, they've got big problems.

Oy, the lady really is for turning, no?

And she's not whistling dixie about the science bit, either. She took a degree in chemistry at Oxford at one of the rather formidable women's colleges before the entire university went co-ed.
