A touch of class, and an anti-tribute to Thatcherism

Here’s how out of it I am. I didn’t know Glenda Jackson had quit acting! Well, I knew I hadn’t seen her in a movie in years, but just the thought that a two time Academy Award winner for Best Actress (“Women in Love,” 1971; “A Touch of Class,” 1973) is totally out of the business astounds me.

Even worse, I didn’t know she’s been a Minister of Parliament in the U.K. for 20 years!

And then I find out she went of the floor of Parliament and did a savage rhetorical autopsy on Margaret Thatcher when everyone else was eulogizing the former PM.

Here’s the speech:

Wow! Jackson left a lot of sputtering Conservatives in her wake!
