Colonel Gadaffi's last words have been revealed by the bodyguard who stood by his side as he lay dying in a ditch in Libya.
The bodyguard revealed that the Colonel's last words were "I should have married Margaret Thatcher when I had the chance to"
The pair met at a Tyrannical Leader fancy dress party way back in the 80s, when Mrs Thatcher was considering divorcing Denis because he did not buy her a Birthday Card.
Gadaffi and Thatcher danced the night away, dressed as Hitler and Queen Elizabeth the First respectively, and then Gadaffi produced a ring and said. "Come be The Coloneless of Libya. I'll pay your husband 80 camels and a Nuclear Bomb for his blessing"
Margaret Thatcher thought about the offer for about 20 minutes but then, on the banks of Westminster Bridge, she broke Gadaffi's heart.
She said "I cannot marry you, Mr Gadafti, I'm not finished destroying my Country yet. But one day, when Denis is long gone, and my country is in financial ruins, with riots in the streets, and protesters camping outside the financial district, I will come and find you."
That day came on Friday, and Mrs Thatcher went to Libya, only to find that the second great love of her life had gone into hiding and was surrounded by troops.
He died today not knowing that Maggie had honoured her word and come back to him. They could have been the new Diana and Dodi. A very tragic end to a beautiful love story.
