Essex man names his baby after ex-PM Margaret Thatcher
A Conservative councillor has named his baby son after the former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher because he "wanted a name that stood out".
Asked if he was worried about the reaction of other children when his son, born on 8 January, reaches school age, Mr Gledhill said: "How many children at the age of five are going to say 'oh you're named after the first female prime minister - the one who gave everybody the ability to buy their council house or re-took the Falklands?'".
