First Led Zep, now the Iron Maiden (lady) shows up...

From BBC News just now. She's 81 you know.

Brown welcomes Thatcher to No 10

Lady Thatcher was greeted with a handshake

Former Conservative prime minister Baroness Thatcher is in 10 Downing Street for a meeting with Gordon Brown.
Lady Thatcher, 81, was greeted with a warm handshake from the prime minister as she arrived outside Number 10.
Mr Brown recently surprised many by praising Labour's long-time political foe as a "conviction politician" who "saw the need for change".
Mr Brown's wife Sarah is also thought to be at the meeting with Lady Thatcher, who was PM from 1979 to 1990.
The visit follows an exchange of letters between Mr Brown and Lady Thatcher shortly after he became prime minister in June.
A one-to-one meeting is understood to be taking place in the formal study - the Thatcher Room - followed by a tour of the building where prime ministers live as well as work when in power.
Saatchi and Saatchi
The visit, though rare, is not unprecedented and does not mean that Lady Thatcher is backing Mr Brown as prime minister - shortly after Tony Blair took power in 1997, he also extended an invitation to Baroness Thatcher.
BBC political editor Nick Robinson said Mr Brown also remembered her invitation to him to visit Number 10 shortly after he was elected to Parliament in 1983.
The visit comes on the day it emerged that the advertising agency credited with helping secure the 1979 election victory for the then Mrs Thatcher - Saatchi and Saatchi - has been given the Labour general election advertising account. Mr Brown's comments last week praising Lady Thatcher were taken as him suggesting that he - and not current Tory leader David Cameron - was a conviction politician like her.

I can't wait for Bush and Cheney to similarly earn the label of conviction politicians; twenty to life, or life without possibility of parole, or an extraordinary rendition to Saudi Arabia, etc.
