This cartoon by Andy Davey from The Sun is inspired by the recent visit by Meryl Streep to London to promote her new film 'The Iron Lady' (see trailer), in which she plays former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
In the cartoon we see current PM David Cameron and Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne outside Number 10 Downing Streep (ha ha!). Streep/Thatcher is heading their way, waving to a cluster of photographers. Cameron exclaims, "Oh my God! She's back."
Looks like we're in for a wave of Thatcher nostalgia. I wonder how Mrs T—who, in her famous 1988 Bruges speech, railed against a "European superstate exercising a new dominance from Brussels"—would have handled the euro-zone debt crisis?
