Media Repression on the Question of What is a “natural born Citizen”?

Mr. Moore’s first volume was released in May of this year, shortly after the death of the late Prime Minister. Even when preparing for her eventual passing Margaret Thatcher was capable of choosing a writer who would follow through with a distinctive, yet independent task of telling her story.
