Fantastic! I think it’s a wonderful idea and would be very popular. I imagine it could include the ‘Winter of Discontent’ Corridor showing those terrible public service workers daring to go on strike because they were expected to pay for Heath’s Tory Govt. 3-day week. Then there could be pound coin on display seeing as Thatcher promised to save it but didn’t, causing massive inflation. I can’t wait to see the analytical Cubism piece expressing the Poll Tax riots in Scotland and the famous Banksy painting of Maggie against a backdrop of the retreating Argentinian ship, refusing negotiation or diplomacy. No doubt there will be further paintings of her Cabinet colleagues who were prepared to sell out and surrender the Falklands population. There will be examples of Neo-expressionism by artists showing the de-regulation of the banks and subsequent crash. Each of the hundreds of thousands of people left homeless could be represented by a huge sculpture of pieces of dirt on a giant court shoe. The present housing shortage which came as a result of this could be represented by Tracey Emin’s work: The unmade Building Site which is sure to draw in the punters. Another draw would be the display showing the successes of her privatisation of industry – a large blank white wall and modern art at its best. Jackson Pollock’s ‘Act of Revenge’ canvas depicting the destruction of coal mining would sit alongside the surrealism of the destruction of shipbuilding and steelworks. A large metal scrap heap representing all those who were thrown on it, by the sculptor Antony Gormley, would stand at the entrance. Inside would be his Angel of the South figure of her hugging Pinochet. The highlight would be a boat ride through the museum of her eleven years of failure and misery where at the end you are ousted by yer ain folk!!!!

Aye, I'm for it!

Well done GG, I don't think you have missed anything that should be exhibited that could explain Margaret Thatcher any better than you have just done.

Bet you could fair go an Irn Bru after that.

Ha ha, the idea of a museum just angered me again when I thought I had heard the last of her. And yes oh yes, it IS from the heart Lochend - and I barely touched the surface! She used to keep me awake at nights in the early 80s and lately, she's been doing the same. So let's stop talking about her so my blood stops boiling and fizzing or I'll have to sue Roger for an attack of apoplexy if he posts any more shocks!!!! :lol:

Still good news she is gone. We can forget about her now. Still cant figure out how the old witch managed to win 3 General Elections when no bugger voted for her.

How can you forget about her when they are planning on a bloody national shrine to her ?
Will this be funded privately or will it be sneaked into some sort of grant from the public purse ? Seeing as they want to locate it in central London I imagine the costs would be astronomical for a charity to run, it would be interesting to see how much it is going to administer compared to other local councils that are closing libraries and selling the properties to private companies.

I wonder if Govan Girl will be rushing out to get the latest hairstyle that's coming back into fashion.
