Yeah, I mus-understood. My apologies.

Too bad the IRA didn't finish her off in the 80s.

Her name was an anagram for "that great charmer." I know, because that was the Final Jeopardy question I got wrong when I appeared on the program. Just one more thing I hold against Margaret Thatcher.

Cormee: keylock71: Heh... Gerry Adams' statement on her death:

Margaret Thatcher did great hurt to the Irish and British people during her time as British Prime Minister.
Working class communities were devastated in Britain because of her policies.
Her role in international affairs was equally belligerent whether in support of the Chilean dictator Pinochet, her opposition to sanctions against apartheid South Africa; and her support for the Khmer Rouge.
Here in Ireland her espousal of old draconian militaristic policies prolonged the war and caused great suffering. She embraced censorship, collusion and the killing of citizens by covert operations, including the targeting of solicitors like Pat Finucane, alongside more open military operations and refused to recognise the rights of citizens to vote for parties of their choice.
Her failed efforts to criminalise the republican struggle and the political prisoners is part of her legacy.
It should be noted that in complete contradiction of her public posturing, she authorised a back channel of communications with the Sinn Féin leadership but failed to act on the logic of this.
Unfortunately she was faced with weak Irish governments who failed to oppose her securocrat agenda or to enlist international support in defence of citizens in the north.
Margaret Thatcher will be especially remembered for her shameful role during the epic hunger strikes of 1980 and '81.
Her Irish policy failed miserably.

Ought to ruffle a few feathers.

I wonder how many years he spent working on that!


Heh... Probably a few.

Thatcher also joins another ruthless leader of England, Queen Elizabeth the First, that made Northern Ireland worse.

Yeah.  April 8, 2013: The day the moral high ground was ceded.

You never had moral high ground. That's why most people don't like you. Wanting to help the world but demonizing everyone who disagrees with your ways and means, then laughing when they die isn't a way to win hearts and minds.

Aww someone wants attention today. You are trying so hard in this thread.

The real attention whores are celebrating this woman's death. I'm saying it isn't right. Since when is saying act like a decent human being the act of an attention whore?


You started this thread off by ranting about communists and acting like an attention whore. You don't give a shiat about civility.

Precisely the kind of sentiment I'd expect from those espousing an ideology of tolerance and open-mindedness towards people whose views differ from their own.

Or are Socialists cool with fomenting hatred?  I can never keep track.

I'm done. Fark libs, celibrate.

HA! I'm not a liberal.  Liberals probably mourn her loss as well.  I'm a socialist.  I hope Maggie is greeted by her buddy Pinochet at the gates of hell.  This woman deserves no respect and no ounce of sympathy for the war she waged on working people.

Someone go out on the lawn and tell Biden to skip that last coat of wax on the Trans Am and put on his good suit. He is going to London for a few days. And tell him to keep the tab under $400k a night this time OK?

Isn't it the opposite today? Watching the petulant rage from the left as I sip my coffee is giving me quite kick at work this morning.

Not that I like Thatcher. I don't care either for her either way.

Don't you mean more for tyranny and fighting freedom?

Civil_War2_Time: Stop watching/reading so much news...regardless of the source. You're projecting on how you feel most conservatives think, and that's not reality.


So... stop being informed and I'll have a better idea of how most conservatives think? You may wish to re-phrase that, because that is precisely how that statement comes off, and I'm willing to bet you did not intend it to come off that way. I'll grant you, however, that I did mean conservative politicians and not "all conservatives", so I as well need to be more careful about how I word things.

Thatcher very much deserves the ill-feelings so many liberals hold towards her, and frankly, she deserves a lot more ill-feelings from conservatives than she gets. She was a disaster.

Love her or hate her, she had the courage to go her own way and did't give a rats ass whether her party was coming along with her.

She is the embodyment of the kind of politician we need today.. instead we get the weak knee'd wusses that cave to even a small amount of public pressure.

Nothing wrong with hating a class enemy.  You know, people who want to privatize everything and destroy unions and drive down wages for profit.   Because at the end of the day what is profit? It's just what's left over from not paying workers a living wage.  It's not a bad thing to hate thatcher.... she was a terrible enemy to workers.  She was a great friend to Pinochet though!

That's why I suggested he/she refrain from watching AND reading so much news. It's a very bad addiction, and not much good can come out of being so "informed."

Yep if someone doesn't like apartheid or Pinochet that means they love Castro. Those are the rules.

Whether or not you agree with her politics she was an exceptional world leader, and a person who smashed through the glass ceiling.

jcooli09: 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.

That's the same thing the Reagan felaters all say here in the states, and it's BS here too.

Reagan and Thatcher had exactly as much to do with the fall of the Soviets that every other president and PM.  The soviets fell due to their own corruption, mismanagement, and ill treatment of their people.


Keep telling yourself that if it makes you feel better.

An 87 year old dying after years of ill-health barely constitutes 'tragic'. Unlike Thatcher's contribution to the state of the country today.
