Over the pond, Tories have voted Margaret Thatcher a bigger hero than Winston Churchill.
MT's alignment with Ronald Reagan was I think a vital element in the west's winning the cold war and opening up Eastern Europe and Russia, but, WC was a hero for all times.
What's odd to me is to a man, every British person I've ever met has at one point or another said something nasty about Margaret Thatcher, basically blaming her for all modern England's ills.
I think that's odd, that she seems so reviled by her countrymen. I will say that Labour party kool-aid must be delicious.
