For Sarah Palin (or her advisors) for suggesting that she expected to meet Margaret Thatcher during a forthcoming visit to London. Although the former prime minister is not quite royalty, and expects to be present at the forthcoming unveiling of a statue of former president Ronald Reagan in London, at her advanced age she nonetheless would expect to be consulted in advance about the possibility of a meeting. Palin's crass approach is entirely in keeping with her general demeanour. Palin for President?!?
