The Iron Lady Reviewed By Lights Camera Jackson.

(The Iron Lady Review starts at 1.48)

Above is the online video review, from a young man known only as Lights Camera Jackson, for the recently released Meryl Streep movie The Iron Lady, which bagged the actress an Oscar this year for her portrayl of Satan himself, Margaret Thatcher.

Lights Camera Jackson is a self titled ‘kid critic‘ who has caught the attention of Jay Leno and has been nominated for two New York Emmy awards. Of course he isn’t everyone’s cup-o-tea and if being told by a 13 year-old American boy, sporting a bum fluff moustache, who was born eight full years after Margaret Thatcher had wreaked havoc across this country, that she was a person who was ‘really inspiring‘ wasn’t jarring enough, then his nitrous oxide induced enthusiasm for this flick will have you spewing bile.

According to Lights Camera Jackson, Thatcher:

‘…fought hard for England.’

Oh hello there Lights Camera Jackson, allow me to introduce myself, I’m Geography Globe MacKenzie.
