Yes you did ...you said you laughed.

That is why thankfully most people on here called you a complete twit (or words to that effect).





Why not find the post to prove me wrong?
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.

And to those who say she ruined the country, what exactly was the state of the country when she came to power? Who was responsible for that? The unions played their part in decimating UK manufacturing with their greedy excessive demands, making the UK totally unable to compete with emerging Eastern economies that laughed at the socially legislative economic suicide we were committing. It's just too easy to blame someone else though.

We had 70% employment in manufacturing prior to Thatcher and only 25% at the end of the tory term of power.....so intrested to know how you work that one out.

Yeah yeah yeah it was all the workers and the unions fault. What we needed was a really tough PM who could crush the workers and the unions and everything would be fine? Or so the right wing media would have led us to believe!

And what happened? Mass unemployment. Communities destroyed. The only thing that saved the country from economic disaster under Thatcher was North Sea oil and gas coming onstream. The timing was great for Thatcher. A get out of jail free card.

Surely only an exceptionally arrogant Prime Minister would have the audacity to bring in the Poll Tax and think that the population of the UK would tolerate taxation so blatantly unfair that the dirt poor had to pay the same as billionaires?! We are quite a passive nation, but in the end enough was enough. And yet no doubt over the next few days and weeks we will be told time and time again that Thatcher was the best post-war Prime Minister and equally glowing praise.  



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

Yes a true Brit, however my Fateher was in the NWT&G workers plus TUC. REALLY disliked the Woman.


Quote from pompeytog
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.

Gobsmacked at some of the views expressed on here.  Dissappointented.

The alternatives were Michael Foot,  Neil Kinnock.....would we have fared better under those governments?  I doubt it.  Great leader and a fantastic politician, no matter what your party politics are/were.  A true Briton.  Rest in Peace, your country owes you so much.
