There could soon be a calle Thatcher in Madrid

Make sure that you stay on the right, particularly if the majority Popular Party (PP) get their way in this Madrid street. Because very soon the city could boast la calle Margaret Thatcher after the former British Prime Minister who died at her London home earlier this month.

It would seem that the suggestion was put before Madrid’s city council by the arts department of PP mayor Ana Botella’s City Hall team. But Mrs Thatcher is not the only recently deceased to be put forward as candidates.

Spanish actress Sara Montiel and the writer José Luis Sampedro, both of whom also died this week, are also included on the council list which should be approved by the council assembly on April 24.

However there are some voices of dissention as Jaime Lissavetzky, the leader of Madrid’s Socialist Party, expressed his disapproval as did Ángel Pérez of the United left bloc.

Both objected on the grounds that the Iron Lady “did not live in Madrid.”
