American Rhetoric: Movie Speech

"The Iron Lady" (2011)


PM Thatcher Delivers Remarks to the House of Commons Following Falklands Victory



We congratulate the men and women of our Armed Forces for their skill, bravery, and loyalty to this country.

We were faced with an act of unprovoked aggression and we responded as we have responded in times past: with unity, strength, and courage -- sure in the knowledge that though much is sacrificed, in the end, right will prevail over wrong.

And I put it to the Right Honourable Gentleman opposite that this is not a day for him to carp, find fault, demand inquiries. They will happen -- I can assure him of that, for we have nothing to hide.

No, this is a day to put differences aside, to hold one's head high, and take pride in being British.
