‘How anyone can say she was a villain? She was one of political history’s heroes’, Russell Quirk told GB News
London’s Victoria and Albert Museum has been slammed after naming Margaret Thatcher as a “contemporary villain” alongside Adolf Hitler and Osama Bin Laden in an exhibition on British humour.

The exhibit, which displays a range of satirical Punch and Judy puppets, charts the traditional seaside show’s history in the “Laughing Matters: The State of a Nation” display – but Thatcher’s inclusion next to historical villains was met with scorn.

Under the puppet of the former Prime Minister is the caption: “Over the years, the evil character in this seaside puppet show has shifted from the Devil to unpopular public figures including Adolf Hitler, Margaret Thatcher and Osama bin Laden, to offer contemporary villains.”
