Margaret Thatcher Dies at 87

Sad news today as ′The Iron Lady′, Margaret Thatcher dies at the age of 87 from a stroke. News of the former British Prime Minister passing away came from Lord Tim Bell, spokesman for the Baroness Margaret Thatcher. She was the first woman to achieve the office of Prime Minister and made a huge impact on the UK and the world at large. An ardent Conservative, by American standards, she turned around the failing Socialist economy of Great Britain which was mired in state-run bureaucracies and powerful labor unions through most of the 1970s. Her solution was privatization, decreasing regulations and taking on the unions in a battle to restore some Capitalism. Thatcher played a major role in global politics, challenging the Soviet Union, helping to free Poland and combating military invasions by Argentina and Iraq. Her legacy is outstanding and she will be sorely missed by all lovers of freedom.

Queen becomes ‘Bond Girl’ at Opening Ceremony of 2012 London Olympics (VIDEO)

Queen Elizabeth II joined the ranks of the ′Bond Girls′ yesterday at the opening ceremony to start the 2012 London Olympics Summer Games. A spoof video features the latest James Bond actor, Daniel Craig, escorting the Queen to a helicopter, which transports them to the Olympic Stadium. Upon arrival, stunt-performers take over as the stunt-Queen and stunt-Bond leap out above the stadium to land gently thanks to their Union Jack parachutes. All under those well-known cords of the James Bond theme music! For me, this was the high point of last night′s events. In case you missed it, the video of the stunt is below.

Big Ben′s Renaming for Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee

Is it true that the British Parliament is considering Big Ben′s renaming to Elizabeth Tower? Today kicks off the 4-day Diamond Jubilee celebrating 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II rule of the UK. Sunday’s festivities center on a 1,000 boat pageant on the River Thames. So in honor of her reign as queen, the Parliament has majority support to rename the clock tower which houses the historic clock, an icon of both London and England itself, after her Royal Majesty. Some 331 British MPs have agreed to the move, which reflects when King′s Tower of the Palace of Westminster was renamed Victoria Tower during the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897. It was 60 years ago today that Queen Elizabeth II went through her coronation following the death of her father, King George VI, though she actually became Queen when he died on February 6, 1952.

Lost Spitfires Found in Burma

Image finding a squadron of 20 lost British Spitfires, found buried in Burma, in essentially factory-fresh condition, still in their shipping crates from 1945! But that is exactly what has happened to aviation buff David Cundall, who is a farmer by trade. The rare and famous fighter planes have been located after 67 years. With some diplomatic help from David Cameron and Number 10 Downing Street, these 20 aircraft will soon be joining the other 35 remaining relics of World War II. Cundall, 62, has spent some 15 years and about $200,000 searching for these planes. After a dozen trips to Burma, Cundall will soon be realizing a dream come true! The Royal Air Force enthusiasts can thank Cundall, as well as the leaders of Myanmar, President Thein Sein and former political prisoner, Aung San Suu Kyi. Myanmar, as Burma is now called, has been steadily becoming more free, especially as they seek financial help from the European Union.

Gov’t Letter: Dear Dead Guy, Please Reapply for your Benefits

Only a government can be this stupid. A family in Bristol City, England received a nice letter from the government informing their brother that, while they know he’s dead and everything, they are cutting off his benefits. But the letter was happy to inform the dead man that he could reapply for benefits later.

The letter was sent to the home of Steve Hutchings who died on Feb. 22 from brain cancer. Apparently he had been trying to get benefits on and off and was having trouble getting the government to approve of the benefits. But the late Feb. letter denied him once again. Reason: death.

2012 Olympic Secrets Lost – London Terror Scare?

A Metropolitan police officer inadvertently left documents with 2012 Olympic secrets lost on a commuter train. Scotland Yard recovered the documents, which may have included some security details, from another commuter from Kent. The secret material was turned over to a newspaper, then restored to officials. Scotland Yard is investigating the entire matter. The 2012 London Olympics are considered to be a high profile target for any terrorist plots. While it is uncertain who has had access to the documents, it is obvious that some details will need to be changed.

Prince Charles a Vampire? Related to Vlad the Impaler?

Is Prince Charles a vampire? The heir to the British Throne claims that he is related to Vlad the Impaler, the Romanian scoundrel who inspired Bram Stoker to write his novel, ′Dracula′. According to the Associated Press, Prince Charles says that genealogy shows that he is related to old Vlad. Could this explain why the prince has done work to protect the forests of Romania and to stop the construction of the Dracula Land theme park in the Transylvania region? Or is Prince Charles playing trick-or-treat early this year for Halloween?
