Rus­sians put the iron in their Lady

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News - dclarke@irish­times.com

You’ve got to love this story about the rogue Rus­sian pi­rated ver­sion of The Iron Lady. Ap­par­ently, the ropey rip-off, voiced over by one mo­not­o­nous man, de­picts Thatch as a rav­ing maniac who loathed the poor and wor­shipped Adolf Hitler. “Crush the work­ing class, crush the scum, the yobs!” the ti­tle char­ac­ter bel­lows at one point.

Sounds a lit­tle like ev­ery sec­ond agit-prop theatre piece from the mid-1980s.
