Thatcher was a little unfair on the interviewer but I approve of the general theme i.e. its not enough to parade your conscience and say you hate something, you must do something about it.

The blonde is a very famous Swedish interviewer. Stina Dabrowski. She interviewed Kaddafi among others.

She (Thatcher) has a very funny view of Stalin though. Stalin (and the Soviet Union) killed more germans than the UK and the US did together. Is he also "better"?

Denmark and Norway were both invaded by Hitler despite not even having uttered a harsh word against him. Were they "better" simply by being victims of aggression?

I never liked thatcher, but more so for persona than her politics.
But you could see straight away in that interview that there was an uncomfortable feeling.
Add to this some really dumb comments from the intviewer, and you have a bitchy version of an Ali g / borat interview just waiting to bomb.

Wasn't thatch the one who refused to jump on the spot? When asked.

Right or wrong, at least thatcher had an opinion and she stuck to her plans until proven they were bad ones.

Well, interviewer made a fool out of herself spouting illogical arguments that only works in the swedish sectarian left and among swedish journalists (two overlapping sets). And Thatcher went to town on her. As it should be.

So now I have to put famous in Sweden everytime I write about someone who is famous? I mean I thought most of us were in Sweden? I mean I am, aren't you? Like I could say Carola is famous too because she is famous in Sweden (and the other Nordic countries too)...

There is famous - and there is famous. Frank Sinatra was famous - world famous. Carola is - well Carola who? Even a lot of so-called famous people in Sweden are hardly known by all Swedes, let alone outside its borders.

For fjuck's sake!

Carola is famous because she is famous in Sweden! You live in Sweden!

Stina Dabrowski is famous because she is!

There are loads of Brits who are not famous outside the UK but they are sitll famous in the UK. Look up the word in the dickshunary.

there are different level of famous you know! You can be famous for getting your norks out on some no hope wannabee celebrity style show. Or you can be famous for actually doing something either really well or badly (Eddie the eagle).
Being famous for just talking to other famous people? Perhaps if you are on the level of Parky, Jay Leno etc.., but then as soon as you stop the legend stops too.

skogsbo, she is the Swedish version of Parko...she speaks Swedish...get it?

Actually hardly anyone in Sweden knew who Parko is, well except the ones who have lived in the UK. YES it's true!

A few years ago they showed his show here too and that was the first time Swedes had ever heard of him.
