And guess who popped in to offer support
SHE IS already a constant presence in Number 10, beaming down at the new Tory Prime Minister from her portrait in the study.
But yesterday, Baroness Thatcher popped by in person to offer her support.
The former premier, 84, took tea with David Cameron, visited staff, and looked over the silverware. She also told Mr Cameron that he was doing ‘the right thing’ by cutting spending to slash the deficit. In their hour-long encounter, Lady Thatcher compared the dire economic situation facing the Coalition Government with the one she inherited from Labour in 1979, according to her spokesman.
She last visited Downing Street in November to unveil her portrait – the first of a living politician to be hung in the residence.
Mr Cameron told journalists yesterday: ‘It’s great to have her back in.’
