According to the Guardian however Mrs T and the PM are due for another get together this weekend:
Margaret Thatcher is to return to Chequers on Saturday at the invitation of Gordon Brown, the Guardian has learned. The prime minister is expected to discuss the global downturn with the woman who dealt with some of Britain's toughest postwar economic conditions.
They way in which Mrs Thatcher dealt with those tough economic conditions is not remembered with affection by many Labour voters, but the guardian thinks that:
The meeting at Chequers is likely to be seen as a sign of the humble approach Brown plans to adopt during the political conference season as he tries to save his premiership by acknowledging the depth of the current economic difficulties. A one-to-one meeting with the Iron Lady, whose premiership was almost derailed by the dramatic rise in unemployment in the early 1980s, will show that Brown is prepared to take advice even from someone who remains highly controversial on the left.
To me it seems a bit like Einstein's definition of madness to do the same thing, hoping for a different outcome. ... All Brown will get is another hammering from the right for using a frail old lady for political advantage and another hammering from the left for asking economic advice from what they see as a personification of evil.
