I am reminded of Frankie Boyle:

"Her state funeral is going to cost nine million pounds. For that much money, you could buy a shovel and give it to every single Scottish person and we'd dig a hole deep enough that you could deliver her to Satan personally."

Britain was already written off by everyone and in terminal decline when she came to power. She was like the doctor who cuts off your leg because you have gangrene. Sensible people would thank them for saving their life. Stupid people blame them for losing their leg.


And smart doctors offer you a new prosthetic leg and get you back to work and a full life, not kick your injured arse out the hospital bed and tell you to get over it.

When I was younger, if the ugly subject of politics and Margaret Thatcher ever came up, I used to make a small joke. I'd say "Did you know I was the first ever person in England to become unemployed because of her?"

People would then ask me for details and I'd tell them this true story: that I had a steady job as a 'Milk Monitor' at Primary School. My role was to hand out milk to the other children and provide them with a straw. It was a steady job with no real prospects, but I was proud to hold this exulted position of responsibility.

But then one bright morning teacher walks in to class and tells us very calmly that "Margaret Thatcher has taken away all your milk" - and all the children cried their tiny eyes out. (Indeed, she was known colloquially as 'Milk Snatcher' long thereafter.)

I then tell them that only because of my "transferable skills" was I able to land a plumb job as 'Window Monitor.'


And do you know who that man is?

It's also a pretty good illustration of ad hominem. Nobody is addressing his argument; they're berating his job and retirement plan.

The argument is that he's a hypocrite.

But that says nothing about his basic premise.  Hypocrites can have valid ideas.

True but the validity is questionable if they don't follow the ideas they're espousing.

No it's not, they're separate arguments

Why not follow a good idea?

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.

At the time we derided her as "Thatcher the Snatcher". How little we realized that we had been given a warning glimpse into her true heart.

Perhaps not directly, but the actions of the many western nations which forced that hand into spending for said defense helped speed things along.

Speaking of spending a third on defense, that sounds familiar for some reason.


Actually, that is directly impacting the fall of the Soviet Union. If the Soviets had been left to their own devices, they would have spent money on other things. The West knew that their economies were more dynamic; they used that to their advantage.

Bye-bye, you short sighted conservative twit.


And those tax breaks were funded by selling off nationalised utilities - gas, rail, etc...

Which now take more in subsidies (well, rail anyway) than they would have the state cost to run, yet pay out ever increasing dividends with ever increasing prices. It really would have been cheaper and simpler, never mind more honest, to just tax everyone an additional amount, divvy it up among those rich enough to buy shares in the scheme, and let the state carry on running these things.
