The Iron Lady

Load of bollocks. This has nothing to do with Margaret Thatcher's political career. This film is about gawping at someone who is losing their mind to dementia. We show sufferers of mental health conditions no sensitivity whatsoever in our society and it's even worse if you happen to have been a very powerful political figure for twenty years.

Margaret Thatcher's career was controversial enough without having to resort to dramatising her losing her mind just to sell cinema tickets. To make a film like this when she is still alive too is brutally insensitive.

Anyone suffering from dementia or knowing someone with dementia will be appalled by this film ..even sandal wearing lefties who suffered from her policies. This is just a voyeuristic invasive snooping into the life of someone suffering from a humiliating condition.
