A Woman? Not On My Terms!

Glenda Jackson, an actor of some fame and justified renown, has been a member of the House of Commons for more than 20 years, for Labour. Here she delivers a right smart bitch-slapping to the sainted memory of Baroness Thatcher into the teeth of torrid (for Tories) torment from the other benches.

     You might well recognize her face or voice., She played Elizabeth, I, in the memorable BBC/PBS teevee series in 1971, Elizabeth R, but she had a reputation for fierceness even before that, winning an Oscar for a controversial adaptation DH Lawrence's Women in Love, and demonstrating time and again her willingness to commit art. She delivers such a stroke, here, for her constituents.

Flash: Screw Mad Meg. Long Live Glenda Jackson!

Wonderful performance!

Everyone should watch this and take a lesson on how to talk back to power.

She never cringes from her indictment of Mad Murderess Maggie.

Thanks for posting the video!
