I met her when she was Secretary of State for Education, in 1974.
Out of the 3 different party representatives who attended the school, she was the only one who answered honestly.
The school asked each representative, (on 3 different days), why can't sixth formers be paid to stay on at school? While tha Labour and Liberal people both agreed that school kids should receive a pay inducement, Maggie told us not to be so silly!
After all, she said. You may get money while you're in education, but once you leave, you'll be paying tax for the rest of your life, for every other school pupil!
... And she was the only politician who received an ovation.
R.I.P Maggie. No doubt Dennis has a G&T at the ready!
Going to my school was an education in itself. Which is not to be confused with actually getting an education (Schultz)
