BTW, I don't know what Peter implies when he says people 'held their
noses' when they voted Thatcher, 'given the alternatives'. At the last
French election, some people held their noses and voted Chirac - the
alternative was Le Pen. Surely neither Labour nor the Lib Dems were ever as
disreputable as that?
===========================================
Peter ISn't implying anything. He WAS merely
speculating as to a possibility, having not been there,
having not paid attention to the matter at the time,
and so having no other knowledge (than the
unreliable media reports) about the matter,
yet continuing to be interested in what might
account for her apparent popularity (not necessarily
reflected in the poles), and continuing to elicit
such information.

Cheers,
Peter
