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?'".

To be fair, it's a lot less bad than it sounded. I initially thought he'd named his son 'Margaret'. 'Thatcher Maguire' is nowhere near as bad, it just sounds quite American. He'll most likely end up being called 'Thatch'.

He can always say he was named after former Wimbledon and Man City clogger Ben Thatcher.

Are you really putting Thatcher and Franco on the same level?

Welll....it's perhaps a bit extreme, but I like where your coming from! :mrgreen:
