Fact of the Day: Royal Politics

While the British monarchy has no real power, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is expected to meet with the Queen on a weekly basis. While the monarchy is advised to stay as non-partisan as possible, Queen Elizabeth's has had good and bad relationships with her Prime Ministers. The most frosty relationship seemed to be with Margaret Thatcher who ironically was her longest serving Prime Minister.

Two strong headed women with different ideas.

Thatcher was a tyrant, we are better without her. That is, we are just as bad with Cameron and the rest of the crew.

A little clash must have been just what they needed.

Margaret Thatcher had an icy relationship with everybody.

Wonder what their signs are. Some signs and women just can't get along.

Let's just say that neither of those women seem like people we'd like to sit down and have a beer with.

I find it interesting that strong-willed women generally don't like other strong willed women.
