Sarah Palin may not get to have an audience with Margaret Thatcher, but it’s not because the Baroness thinks the hockey mom is wacky.
In the wake of two reports quoting anonymous sources claiming that the former British prime minister is refusing to meet with an adoring Palin on an upcoming European stop because “Sarah Palin is nuts,” a former aide of the Iron Lady says that the purported snub is rubbish.
“I have spoken to Lady Thatcher’s Private Office regarding the story, and they confirm that the attack on Sarah Palin definitely did not come from her office, and in no way reflects her views. As a former aide to Margaret Thatcher myself, I can attest that this kind of thinking is entirely alien to her, and that such remarks would never be made by her office,” wrote Nile Gardiner, a political analyst for the Telegraph U.K.
He concluded by blaming the liberal elite mainstream media.
“There was never any snub of Sarah Palin by Lady Thatcher’s office. However, there has been a great deal of mischief-making and unpleasantness from sections of the liberal press in a vain and futile attempt to use Margaret Thatcher’s name to smear a major US politician,” Gardiner wrote.
