Speak no ill of the dead.
Margeret, I hope you rest in peace, and if there is an afterlife,I pray you and Dennis find eachother (Mark might need a map and someone to explain it to him).
Seriously, you had biggers ****s than most of us.
God Save the Queen.
Sorry, wrong thread.
On reflection it might have been better if you had stayed away.....
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
A rare occasion that I actually agree with you regarding showing respect!

Aske Carol and Mark first but the lady deserves a State Funeral.
There's a coupon online for that, should you feel so strongly – click here
But reports suggest she didn't want a State funeral, but is getting a ceremonial funeral instead. Not too up on the distinctions, other than I believe the former needs Parliamentary assent whereas the latter doesn't (IIRC it needs only for HMQ to approve it), but in terms of scale the two seem pretty similar.

As long as she does not come back.
Without going into details, no she does not deserve a state funeral. No polictician does.

Britain needed to be dismantled and rebuilt. She was ace at the former, but...
Nice piece from Stan Collymore (whodathunkit).
I have some home cinema and Sonos stuff.
Mark gets confused by a tube map.
As to a State Funeral, damned right she deserves.one.. I didn't like her politics but what she did for WOMEN deserves all our respect.
So do I, how does something with so little power manage to sound so good, I mean some of them things are only 4W per channel! Amazing...
No signature worth mentioning...
I am the grandson of the BBC's Chief Engineer during the 1960s. No BS. 100 Years Rule and all that.
I know plenty women who believe that the lasting bad-taste Margaret Thatcher left in a lot of people's mouths did absolutely nothing positive to make people more receptive and accepting of females as bosses, leaders and senior politicians. In fact quite the opposite. Though I do still firmy believe that this is the wrong time and place to bad-mouth a frail infirm old lady who's just met her maker, and I will not do so.

There hasn't been a 'Chief Engineer' at the BBC since 1952.
The post was re-named 'Director of Technical Services' until 1956 and then 'Director of Engineering' (until 1993 when BBC Engineering was dis-banded and all the engineers moved to a department called 'BBC Resources').
Was your Grandfather Sir Francis McLean?
