In 2006 or so I bought a set of nesting dolls at a Salvation Army store in San Francisco. There were 5-6 dolls and they were all Cold War leaders: Gorbachev, Thatcher, Reagan, etc. I thought they were the coolest thing on earth, but gave them to someone as a gift. I'd love to find the same set again and buy them again. There's no chance of contacting the person I gave them to. I keep searching eBay and googling but can't find them. Can you help?
I have just seen the movie Iron Lady, and was wondering whether anyone here could recommend me resources to better understand the British economy and government before and during Thatcher? [more inside]
Does anyone remember and know where I can find an old Flash animation that I saw on the internet years ago, which featured hopping bunnies, the floating head of Margaret Thatcher, and a jaunty song containing the word 'ja!'? [more inside]
UK politics and society and culture - recommend good books about the Thatcher years. Both left- and right-leaning titles desired. [more inside]
TechnoFilter: My friend once gave me a mix-tape made in the late 80s or early 90s that included this song. It samples Margaret Thatcher talking about "monopoly money", "modern warfare", etc. She doesn't remember who the song is by or what it's called, but was kind enough to record an MP3, which I doubt anyone will care about me posting: rusrs.com/thatcher.mp3 [more inside]
