Quote from Jackass
Shew did what had to be done to repair the damage done to the UK economy by a combination of out of control unions and successive Labour governments that pandered to them. Whilst she wasn't perfect and made mistakes, by and large she succeeded. I'm old enough to remember the state of the country in 1979, the shambolic mess left by Callaghan's Labour. I was brought up in a Socialist minded family, but my memories of the 70's have left me incapable of voting Labour again. Now after another 13 years of Labour government look at the shambolic mess we're in once more. It astonishes me how people are quite happy to blame the cure and not the cause.



It comes as no surprise to me that your user name is Jackass.  

As in life, so in a game of hazard, skill will make something of the worst of throws.

R.I.P. Mrs T. She did what had to be done for the good of the Country and with a real sense of duty rather than what could she get out of it. Unlike some of the idiots of recent times. She was a truly Great Briton.



Well said cheeky
An amazing woman who taught the lazy unions, IRA and the Argies not to mess with her.
My imagination wants to see the vivid colours of reality .

I can't believe people on here are celebrating her death. Ok, she had her faults, so despise or dislike her if that's how you feel, but celebrating her death is a bit unjust.

an old lady died

someones mother, sister, grandmother

are you really proud of yourselves

this is whats wrong with the world - weather you agree or not with what she did, celebrating a frail old woman's death says far more about you as people than her

That's scrounging lay-about Labour voters for you
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

I'm not one for usually commenting on such things, but I just can't help myself due to the nasty things that are being cast around on forums and social networking and people who actually commented that they "hoped she suffered" !!!!!
At the end of the day, she's also a human being....and how would those folks feel if somebody vilified a member of their family in the same way????

Absolutely spot on, couldn't agree more.
A wise man changes his mind, a fool, never.

I won't be out celebrating. But I won't be losing any sleep. She lived a long life and that was more than a lot of the people she affected got.

She ruined the country. She brought in laws that promoted greed and tax dodging by the rich. That still exist today and are part of our whole problem.
She systematically destroyed the steel and coal industry which has left with no core exports (British steel and such) and left us open to being at the mercy of Russia for fuel.

Like most MP's she was short sighted and never saw the bigger long term picture.

The unions were a problem and needed fixing. But by destroying the industry they represented she did far more harm than good and ruined hundreds of thousands of peoples lives without a second thought.

My thoughts exactly. Well said. Don't speak ill of the dead, especially on the day of their passing. What's wrong with some people?
