Iron Lady Ironing

From the archives of All things Ironing - Margaret Thatcher ironing.

Margaret Thatcher, the 'Iron Lady' offered to pay for an ironing board for No 10 after becoming PM, having insisted on using her own household items.

In documents from 1979, kept secret until 2009, the Iron Lady said she could provide her “own crockery” and “an excellent ironing board”.
