DON’T be fooled by those heels. There is nothing kittenish about Theresa May .
Comparing Mrs May with Mrs Thatcher is wrong, of course. Just because they both happen to be female ... and Tory ... and Prime Minister of a deeply divided country.
Those similarities are entirely coincidental. I don’t think.
Theresa May shares Margaret Thatcher’s authoritarian streak. They say she is “flinty”. In fact, she is diamond hard.
Thatcher loved a tank. May will parade her military credentials on a far more lethal weapon next week.
She will ask Westminster to back a new generation of nuclear weapons costing an eye-watering £205billion.
They will replace Trident – Thatcher’s evil offspring.
Of course they will be dumped out of sight – from the Tory shires at least – on the Clyde. That makes Scotland a prime target.
