    I think that Margaret Thatcher and Abdul Rahmin differ little from American or Chinese Presidents in that they are elected members of political parties. I doubt that when Gunny started this thread he intended to show heads of republics only. In fact When I replied with the Thatcher stamps, Gunny replied "Yep, a Prime Minister will work. I remember her well. She was a great ally to President Reagan."

    I have to admit,that I was and am neither a fan of Mrs.Thatcher nor
    of Ronald Reagan.Living in Ireland in the last years of her reign,
    I remember her as a hanbag-flinging woman,shouting:"I want my money back".In her early years she destroyed the "trade-union-rule"
    in Britain and later went into the Falkland-war.Both was necessary.
    But for Europe she was just short of a desaster.So when she was
    deposed by a party-coup,I felt quite relieved.
    If somebody wants to show prime-ministers or royalties in this thread,he/she is of course free to do so.But I myself will stick to
    presidents.

    Living in the UK at the time I saw Thatcher in a different light, the more powerful trades unions were ruining us, disrupting transport, rubbish disposal, gas and electricity supplies sometimes during our coldest winters.

    When the Conservative party was in power I always had more money in my pocket than with a Labour government.

    PS. I too was in a trade union, the ETU - EETPU

    As with so many stamps of South-Korea,the above stamp was also issued in souvenir sheets.The s.s. exists in two versions.
    Here the first "correct" version:

    Hello all, I know that they are Prime Ministers, we've had this discussion before but they are elected heads of government.
