    Being a Brit and living here I found Streep’s performance remarkable.  When I heard trailers on the radio I thought that’s a bloody good imitation of the woman, for her Midlands’ child’s voice was half a tone off, but watching the film and seeing La Streep in full make up that she became Thatch making me relive the awfulness, the certainties and the idealogical extremism of terrible and somehow exhilarating years,
