New Statue of Maggie Thatcher in Parliament

I took my Elderhostel group to Parliament and saw the new statue of Thatcher outside the Commons.

This lobby has 4 large statues of Churchill and Lloyd George by the entrance to the Commons and opposite them are Attlee and Thatcher, the rest of the 20th Century leaders have busts only.

The choice of the 4 seem fair enough I guess although I can't help feeling Macmillan also should have a large statue here, and maybe Asquith and Cambell-Bannerman?

Thatcher's statue is a little strange and resembles her spitting image puppet just a little - something cartoonish, Beryl Cookish about it.
