Margaret Thatcher in hospital

Recommended Posts

The Park hotel, fuck me, that place has really gone to the dogs. It's owned by a greek man who is seemingly clueless. I don't want to say too much about it, for fear of libel, but put it this way, I believe food hygiene is a matter of public record now. What a waste, it now makes its money ripping off people getting married and catering for coach loads of OAPs (sorry if I've offended anyone getting or having been married there recently).

 

The Grand, on the other hand, is superb in comparison. Copperfields at the back has the best pub food in Tynemouth.

I concur on both points. My aunty lives behind The Park and she swears her cat was killed by the load of rat poison they had to put down after being pulled by environmental health. Mind, she reckoned the cat before that was abducted by illegal fur traders.

From Margaret Thatcher to pubs/hotels in the Tynemouth area, I love the way threads go so random.

 

Anyone drink in the Maggy Bank - I imagine that must be Gemmill's local, probably seen him without realising....

I would occasionaly drop in at the old "Colin Campbell" in Shields - not one of yer trendy wine bars

 

The Park - that's the place - used to do about 4 weddings at the same time on a Saturday - the manager would shoot from room to room with a stopwatch announcing "the Bride and groom will now cut the cake" - so he could keep the whole show on the road and the rooms turning over at the right speed

Lady Thatcher treated after fall

 

Former Conservative prime minister Margaret Thatcher is under observation in hospital after breaking her arm.

 

The 83-year-old suffered the injury in a fall at home but is said by her office to be "recovering well".

 

She had been due to return home after treatment but doctors at the Chelsea and Westminster hospital have decided to keep her in overnight.

 

Britain's first woman prime minister celebrated the 30th anniversary of her election victory earlier this week.

 

Lady Thatcher's office said there were no complications or other health issues to be concerned about, following her accident.

 

"The hospital's decided, just to be sure, to keep her in for observation," her spokeswoman said.

 

"It's a simple fracture, but bearing in mind who she is, she's 83 and the shock to the system, it's just belt and braces. There is nothing untoward."

 

They confirmed she had tripped and fallen at about 0800BST. An ambulance was called and she was transferred under police escort, with her special branch protection detail, to the hospital.

 

She was given an X-ray and it was discovered she had fractured her upper arm.

 

Lady Thatcher, who led Britain from 1979 to 1990, has become increasingly frail in recent years and has suffered a number of minor strokes. Her daughter Carol has also spoken about her struggle with dementia.

 

Ill health forced her to abandon her regular public speaking engagements in 2002 but she still makes public appearances.

 

In March last year she spent the night in hospital after feeling unwell while having dinner with friends.

 

But earlier this week she was at the Carlton Club in London to mark the 30th anniversary of her historic election victory.

 

In September 2007 Gordon Brown surprised many of his own backbenchers by inviting the peer to visit Downing Street and praising her as a "conviction politician".

 

I'm assuming this was while she was still in office? B)

On a serious note I've wondered when Ronald Reagan had his Alzheimer's diagnosed and if it was during his time in office whether anyone had the guts to see the signs. In hindsight it explained a lot.

 

On topic I hope the bitch is in pain.
