Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minister of The United Kingdom, were considered close allies. So Sarah Palin, in an effort to show her conservative Republican followers that she is the ultimate ‘ Reagan’ candidate, expressed her desire to meet with Mrs. Thatcher.
Palin told Christina Lamb in the Sunday Times about an upcoming trip she’s planning;
I am going to Sudan in July and hope to stop in England on the way. I am just hoping Mrs. Thatcher is well enough to see me as I so admire her.
But it seems this admiration is a one-way-street. Mrs Thatcher has other plans and according to the report, she is really not very fond of Sarah Palin.
It would appear that the reasons go deeper than Thatcher’s frail health. Her allies believe that Palin is a frivolous figure who is unworthy of an audience with the Iron Lady. This is what one ally tells me:
“Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin. That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts.”
Thatcher will show the level she punches at when she attends the unveiling of a statue of Ronald Reagan outside the US embassy in Grosvenor Square on Independence day on 4 July. This is what her ally told me:
“Margaret is focusing on Ronald Reagan and will attend the unveiling of the statue. That is her level.”
