    General Commentthe 70's and 80's were a messed up time in the UK. Then came along Margaret Thatcher- she was a fake. Tried to act all uppity but really wasn't. And she made all of England competive vs neighbors. So stand down Margaret means to resign. It also means to stop acting like a fake and get off your high horse.
