Hon. Thomas Lukaszuk, MLA, Minister of Education, Progressive Conservative, Edmonton-Castledowns
For medical students studying in the field of elder care & gerontology, this is truly a movie about compassion. Its showcases Double Academy Award (TM) Winner Meryl Streep playing Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in her heyday, as well as slipping back II present day where she has alzheimer's, dementia, & believes in the fact that she is still Prime Minister. It also shows how much she & her late husband Denis thought of & loved one another. Plus the fact Mrs. Thatcher suffers from hallucinations that Denis is still alive. Not II mention how difficult it is IV her daughter II look after her, & how straining it is IV Mark Thatcher, her son who lives in South Africa II have II come & look after her when his life in South Africa & not the United Kingdom.
Whether you agree as a political science student with Thatcher's policy's, you've got II understand this woman & hard as nails Prime Minister & Tory Leader won III straight majority governments. That is a record unmatched by any other Tory PM in the XXth century & gives her more days in office than even the great Sir Winston Churchill. Let us learn to pray IV Mrs. Thatcher II have continued strength & that she gets the proper care & rest/attention she needs II stay as healthy as possible in her retirement.
A Political Mastermind,
