Nothing on God's green Earth makes less sense to me than the fact that she's apparently the only conservative left in Britain. But here's more good sense from the blessed Iron Lady.

Thatcher: Britain must start to quit EU (Philip Webster, March 18, 2002, Times of London)

"It is frequently said to be unthinkable that Britain should leave the European Union. But the avoidance of thought about this is a poor substitute for judgment."

She's right, of course, and could go further--until the Party calls for Britain to get out of Europe and join in a trade and military alliance with her former colonies (US, Canada, Australia, India, etc.); calls for genuine reform of sclerotic bureaucracies like National Health; and calls for a return to traditional British values; it is awfully hard to see why anyone would vote Tory, except as an anti-Labour reflex.
