The Iron Lady's clothes

The Victoria and Albert Museum in London has turned down a donation of Margaret Thatcher's clothes because they are not of "outstanding aesthetic or technical quality"... apparently. 

The museum (if you have not been, do go next time you are the capital because it is absolutely fantastic!) collects and displays costumes, clothes and fabrics for the nation and the story goes that the Thatcher collection does not fit in with their criteria so itwill go on sale by auction next month. Although the auction part of the tale is true, (here's your chance to get a handbag!) the V&A denies that it was ever offered the collection. Perhaps we may yet see the Iron Lady's wardrobe on display in the museum's fabulous galleries?
