image for Baroness Thatcher leaps into action in Somalia. 5 pirates dead, 12 wounded.
Scourge of the seas

In what many are calling 'Her glorious swan-song', Baroness Thatcher today potentially launched an unexpected violent attack on a small boat of Somali pirates.

Enjoying what could possibly have been her last free junket, Mrs Thatcher was flying 500 feet above the Gulf of Aden as a passenger in a helicopter, when she was seen staggering bow-legged in a confused manner towards the back of the chopper, muttering something about 'needing to clean up a nasty mess'.

'The next thing we knew, there was a high wind tearing through the cabin and what sounded like a battle cry as Mrs Thatcher launched herself out of the chopper', said Captain Myecaptain(69).

It is not entirely certain at this stage whether or not the ailing ex-primier accidentally fell, or purposefully threw herself the 500 feet down onto the dingy containing the pirates, yet many are calling it the last unselfish act, of a truly Iron Lady.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
