Thatcher 'Demented' Says Daughter: 'Oh Really,' Say Ex-Miners

Carol Thatcher has revealed in a newly-published book that her mother, the former Tory prime minister Margaret Thatcher, has been suffering from dementia since the year 2000.

“That’s news to us,” said one South Yorkshire miner unable to find work in his unemployment-blighted town for over twenty years. “We thought she was demented when she shut down the entire coal industry forever, with her vindictive refusal to even leave care-and-maintenance teams to keep the mines ready for the day when rising fuel costs would make the pits economically viable again – a day, incidentally, that she hastened by thrusting the energy sector into the grasping hands of unaccountable businessmen driven solely by greed and profit.”
