Quite a few pubs in the North and the West Britain will be celebrating tonight, I suspect.

Fare thee well, you solid biatch. The world is a better place because of your work.

She had more balls then most of the men in politics today.

NYCNative: I know shiat about UK politics but I do know that all my punk rock friends thought she was a vile, evil creature who worked in cahoots with Reagan to advance policies that I would have abhorred had I lived there.


Well, I'm sure all your punk rock friends were very knowledgeable about world politics.

Pour concrete over the casket. You can never be too sure.

I think she's had dementia for quite a long time, probably is why folks assumed she'd already passed.

Anywhos...RIP?

Lazy idiots of GB don't even realize that she was one of the best things that ever happened to this pathetic island.

Show the dead no respect they did not deserve in life. I will speak ill of the dead, and more of her than of most.

VonEvilstein: Marine1: Like her or not, she helped precipitated the fall of the Soviet Union, which was far more evil than any of her policies. Rest in peace.

I don't recall the USSR being particularly evil towards the British populace, you know, the people that old harridan was meant to be representing...


Oh please. They had ICBMs trained on London.

markfara: And with Putin and the like still in charge, it's kind of hard to make the case the the Soviet Union really "fell" very hard.


They are no where near the global player they once used to be and lack total exerted control over many of their border nation states.

I'd say that's pretty much the definition of fallen.

I hope they checked her breath with a mirror to make sure she's dead. And her reflection.

R.I.P.  Mrs. Thatcher.  You may not have saved your country, but you put off it's decline by a decade or more.
 
2013-04-08 08:22:18 AM
What have Thatcher and Savile got in common?

-They both screwed miners.

Don't recall them ever launching any of them...
 
2013-04-08 08:22:45 AM
Thatcher refused to meet the union's demands and compared the miners' dispute to the Falklands conflict two years earlier, declaring in a speech in 1984: "We had to fight the enemy without in the Falklands. We always have to be aware of the enemy within, which is much more difficult to fight and more dangerous to liberty."

What an indescribable shiat she was.

But again, Thatcher had nothing to do with it, her actions did nothing to hasten their fall.  They were spending over 1/3 of their GDP on defense, it was completely unsustainable.

At least Reagan now has some company in hell.
 
2013-04-08 08:23:56 AM
This snippet from the CBC article about her death says all you really need to know about her:

"Once in office Thatcher slashed the tax rates for the wealthiest Britons, increased the value-added tax (VAT), reduced government subsidies and began to sell off state-owned enterprises and public housing."

Bye-bye, you short sighted conservative twit.

Yeah. Because people like Thatcher and Reagan gave them good reason not to.

Thatcher's Britain. Thatcher's bloody Britain! Look at me. I'm young, I'm pretty. I've got 5 O Levels. Bloomin' good grades as well, considering I didn't do a sod of work cause I'm so hard. And look at me now! Homeless, cold, and prostitute.

Yeah, she and Reagan started the whole craze of "trickling down" on the poor.
