Like mathewpiano earlier I will also be raising a glass for tonight, happy in the fact that she has died. No respect for her or her policys at all. She destroyed far to much and for that she has a lot to answer for.
Can't shed a tear for someone who destroyed so much in this country ..
Now I would be upset if Cher had died...
Think of all the extra Tupperware parties.

Perhaps some could choose to misconstrue this thread as somehow "goading" or "trolling", but I certainly would not; more than happy to accept it at face value.
Firstly- RIP Mrs T; You are a legend, and generations to come will see you as one of our greatest ever Prime Ministers, bar none.
Secondly - Shame on those who havn't even got the basic decency to allow the death of an 87 year old lady, a mum and a Grandmother, to pass without some sort of snide, nasty political comment. Strange how the sanctimonious left are always seeking to lecture us on "tolerence", "inclusiveness" and "compassion", yet are happy to celebrate the death of a frail old lady. Sad.
Perhaps for some, saving this country from being the acknowledged sick man of Europe, where the dead were left unburied and the rubbish stood 6 foot high in the streets rotting due to out of control unions, and transforming it into a modern successful country where those to who aspire to get on in life can do so, was beyond the pale. Perhaps the same people were also content with Jack Jones, the all powerful TGWU leader being a traitor and KGB spy as well.
I know who I would rather have running the country, and judging by her electoral success so did the people of England.
So before posting any more snide and nasty comments, just remember someone has died

:clap:Well said.I don't agree with many of your political or social comments cloverleaf but your sentiments are spot on.
I respected her somewhat for her dogged determination to succeed in all she did. But her inability to show any kind of "Humanity" was her ultimate downfall. ( In my Opinion). My thoughts are with her family.
There are things like turn out to consider, not just who won...

I hate to undermine your prejudices (I don't actually - just being polite) but while thinking of myself as left of centre, I don't rejoice at her death, far from it. A great PM at a time when the party I support was in total disarray and quite unfit to govern, MT took on the unions who had irresponsibly brought down the Callaghan government and paved the way for Blair who improved this country no end. But her greatest achievement was to advance the cause of feminism in the UK more than any other single person and for that she has my unstinting admiration. And I quite agree that in any case her death is no time for rejoicing.
There's a coup going on in Hell as we speak.

I'll meet you there."
And I quite agree that in any case her death is no time for rejoicing.
This sentiment I agree with.......my sympathy is with the family.

Indeed the family are paramount in these circumstances.
Just for the record, I didn't always like Thatcher's policies but she improved a sorry situation: Strikes, three-day weeks, mass unemployment. The previous Labour Government killed manufactuering in this country, especially car industry. She also gave people the opportunity to better themselves.
Agreed. Her shrillest critics are often those who are too young to even remember the 70's, and take todays wealthy high tech society for granted. Can you imagine some of these kids trying to cope with daily power cuts ? "wot no Xbox ?"
