She milked her political power

Published 10/04/2013

The death of Margaret Thatcher was a reminder of how I first became politicised at the tender age of seven in 1970.

My job at primary school was handing out the free milk to my fellow classmates but I was told by my headmaster that I no longer had this position because of a new education minister, a Mrs Thatcher. I learned then of the power a politician can have on our lives. This lady had no social consciousness. She will not be missed.
