    Oh gee, I wonder if it'll be favourable or unfavourable towards the Iron Lady? Especially with a leftist actress playing her.

      Depends on what You mean by unfavourable or favourable? if it's anyway close to the way she was and what she did then both!
      Strong willed, determined and capable of trading political blows with the best of them (a benefit in the early 80's) apart from what happened at the end (late 80's/90).
      Stubborn, uncompromising and spiteful. including that old problem of an increasing inflated Ego which quite a lot political leaders suffer from after being in office for more than one term let alone two or three, with the belief that they are always right and indispensable to the nation (that it will collapse/suffer some great tragedy without them[Mubarak?]). Tony Blair/Bush/Clinton all still suffers from this disease/delusion and would be committed if they was just another member of the public.
