87. I see the difference.

 

One is judging someone based on reams of available information about their entire life and reaching entirely justifiable conclusions about them.

The other is what you did.

104. Better to judge the dead, than to judge and punish the living who are poor, sick, unemployed, etc.

And why should you not judge the dead? I can see that waiting until someone's dead before attacking them might be cowardly, but being dead does not exempt you from judgement. I have not waited for her death to condemn her. I feel exactly the same way now about Thatcher as I did last week, or last year, or 30 years ago.

Would you think that it's wrong to judge Genghis Khan because he's dead?

124. I know I lose the internet by this

but we do that all the time. You wouldn't say anything good about Hitler would you? Just because he's dead? Of course we will judge him.

Thatcher may not rise to that level, but she was not someone liberals are going to admire.

Not just Thatcher, or Reagan, but Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, and far too many others to name here, is that right? We shouldn't speak ill of any of the dead?

Maybe you are a fan of revisionist history. Maybe you think it's good to build this awful, awful woman up so she can be used as a symbol of past glories, like that fuckstick Reagan. Not me, and not most of DU, I'd wager.

Your attitude sickens me.

What is 'spirit?'

288. Once someone dies, all their past actions are moot? Nope, criticize their actions forever.

I think you are confusing what she did during her life with having passed into being only a soul or spirit. Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

But most of these posters are bound to be people who have never left their area code let alone spent one nanosecond abroad and moreover still have the same fucking problems they had the day before she died -- rent, student loans, medical bills etc.

I'm not a fan of her policies -- what I know about them -- while also conceding that I miss some of the nuances of British politics just as they miss many of the nuances of our politics.

At any rate, it's just bad karma IMO.

Her anti-government, free market philosophy laid the groundwork in this country for her "special friend" Reagan to come along and immulate. Hell, Reagan's busting of the air traffic control union was a page out of Thatcher's playbook. She is revered amongst conservatives today, second only to St. Ronnie himself. Oh, and let's not forget that it was Maggie dear who helped push Bush the Elder into Iraq, and we know where that led.

Much more than a meme, it is historical reality.

You are wrong. It's not about a 'disagreement'. It's not an opinion.

Just look at all the articles about her legacy all over the media this week, both positive spins or negative analysis.

No one can claim that she is inconsequential in world history, whether they love her or hate her.

This is not my opinion. She was a major figure in the advancement of an economic system that continues to impact the whole world, in addition to her domestic policies for which she is roundly criticized. Whether or not that impact is 'good' or 'bad' may come down to opinion in the philosophical sense, but you are claiming that she is "an otherwise rather inconsequential figure in world history".

211. Hell I lived there for ten years

and I still don't understand some things regarding their government, politics etc. lol

I love Britain, I miss it - way too much. One thing I noticed was when it came to politics, at least amongst my family and friends (can only speak from my own experience) it never dominated conversation. It never caused arguments, in fact it was rarely even discussed and when it was, it was painless - not chock full of hate if you don't agree on every single issue. Politics never played a role in whether they like someone or not. You would rarely see family and friends fall out because they didn't agree on politics. The UK is pretty liberal compared to us so it's not all bad! I didn't live there in the Margaret Thatcher days, however no matter what she may or may not of done - the UK survived and it has survived a lot worse. Things have been pretty bad there the last maybe 5 years with the economy (just like everybody else at the moment) but I think on the whole, American liberals would love it there. Yeah it's not perfect, but what country is? They have far more compassion for their citizens than we do for ours, that's for sure.

When I think about England's history, they have come a long way from where they started. They went from a monarchy that was allowed to put people to death at will, and in some of the most heinous ways, to a country that has no capital punishment and the monarchy is now just there for show and to make money off the tourists. People used to be killed for not believing in the right faith. People starved in the street living in extreme poverty. Most of my ancestors came from England and part of that was because of oppressive England. Now you can believe in any faith you want, or not believe, without the fear of being hung, drawn and quartered, burned to death, boiled in water, beheaded - the list goes on. We cannot even begin to appreciate how horrible life used to be for people in the old world. I would take Margaret Thatcher and Parliament over an evil monarchy any day of the week once I put it into perspective.

Now this isn't aimed at you Floyd because I agree with you, but I don't know if her being mentioned in the same sentence as people like Hitler, Pol Pot and Stalin was meant to be a comparison - I would certainly hope none of you would be so silly as to go there. I don't care for grave dancing and it happens here a lot. It's quite distasteful but freedom of speech and all that, right? If there is a God, she will be judged accordingly. If there isn't, she's just a pile of dust, gone for good. As far as those of us still living condemning the dead, I think we should take the higher road. I have to be in agreement with Floyd. Bad Karma. But by all means, carry on as you wish.

that the people who were effected by her policies see things different and in England they show their disdain at once. They don't gloss over a person's history like in america where there are some who still think of Reagan as Saint Reagan and he wasn't. But I at least I would like to wait a couple of months after the person is buried.

20. No.

 

I actually find your post to be disgusting.

This is why:

...This demand for respectful silence in the wake of a public figure's death is not just misguided but dangerous. That one should not speak ill of the dead is arguably appropriate when a private person dies, but it is wildly inappropriate for the death of a controversial public figure, particularly one who wielded significant influence and political power. "Respecting the grief" of Thatcher's family members is appropriate if one is friends with them or attends a wake they organize, but the protocols are fundamentally different when it comes to public discourse about the person's life and political acts...

But the key point is this: those who admire the deceased public figure (and their politics) aren't silent at all. They are aggressively exploiting the emotions generated by the person's death to create hagiography. Typifying these highly dubious claims about Thatcher was this (appropriately diplomatic) statement from President Obama: "The world has lost one of the great champions of freedom and liberty, and America has lost a true friend." Those gushing depictions can be quite consequential, as it was for the week-long tidal wave of unbroken reverence that was heaped on Ronald Reagan upon his death, an episode that to this day shapes how Americans view him and the political ideas he symbolized. Demanding that no criticisms be voiced to counter that hagiography is to enable false history and a propagandistic whitewashing of bad acts, distortions that become quickly ossified and then endure by virtue of no opposition and the powerful emotions created by death. When a political leader dies, it is irresponsible in the extreme to demand that only praise be permitted but not criticisms....


http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/apr/08/margaret-thatcher-death-etiquette

And this is also why:

...Really, it’s hard to argue with former London mayor Ken Livingstone, who remembered Thatcher on Sky News yesterday:
"She created today’s housing crisis. She created the banking crisis. And she created the benefits crisis. It was her government that started putting people on incapacity benefit rather than register them as unemployed because the Britain she inherited was broadly full employment. She decided when she wrote off our manufacturing industry that she could live with two or three million unemployed, and the benefits bill, the legacy of that, we are struggling with today. In actual fact, every real problem we face today is the legacy of the fact that she was fundamentally wrong."
...
http://www.salon.com/2013/04/09/the_woman_who_wrecked_great_britain/

Reagan's legacy is still harming us ("government is the problem". If Thatcher's legacy gets whitewashed, it is all the more difficult to reverse course.

284. nail on the head

Since when is it wrong to hold someone, dead or alive, responsible for the murders they have committed and lives they destroyed. Thatcher was an evil person in a position of global leadership. She continued to spread her evil until her death. Her dead body deserves as much respect as she showed for the lives of Britain's miners and the rest of the working class. Perhaps the grease from the dead meat that was her body could be used as some sort of lubricant for the vehicles of the working poor. She was just plain evil when she was alive- her death has not mitigated her evil policies or fixed the lives she destroyed.
She didnt use her time here to do good deeds; she frittered her time away with concentrating on the destruction of the lives of the poor and sick. If she had chosen to spend her life helping the poor she would have earned the kind of respect that MSM and right wingers want to heap on her- but she didn't help anyone but the ultra-super rich and right wing reactionary extremism. Fuck her and the meat she left behind.

increased our dependence on the financial industry;instituted an attitude of 'the devil take the hindmost; get rich quick if you can, and who cares about those whom you trample on while doing so'; moved my country much more to a laissez-faire economic system; starved education and the NHS;ganged up with Ronnie Reagan on most issues; supported Pinochet and the South African apartheid regime; etc. etc. And helped to make it respectable for people in general to hold such views!

And the effects have been international. It was not isolated to one tiny corner (mine) of the world - it was spread, with the help of the Maggie-Ronnie collaboration, to many places. And it continues still.

142. Same applies in general

to those who took part the "street parties" which were organised on Facebook here in the UK. Today's pics in our media confirm that to be so.

Over here sheep come to mind.

Police officers were injured and arrests were made as protesters held street parties in cities around Britain celebrating the death of Margaret Thatcher.

One officer was taken to hospital and five others were injured in clashes in Bristol after a street party turned violent. A man was arrested after revellers refused to leave the street party, and threw cans and bottles at police, according to Avon and Somerset police. A police vehicle was damaged and an officer remains in hospital. His injuries are not thought to be serious.

Police said the group "refused requests to peacefully disperse", leading to the use of shields and batons by officers. A spokeswoman said police received a number of calls from residents about the party.

She said party-goers were "throwing stuff around and starting fires" before police arrived.

People in high positions of power must live up to a higher standard, as others lives are in the balance. She did what she did for a reason, and in doing so she hurt a lot of people.

Margaret Thatcher could have made a real difference for the better, she could have expressed her love of mankind and her care and concern by doing positive things that would have helped those most in need. She chose not to.

She's dead. She doesn't know. She can't hear any more. Talk about a message falling on deaf ears.

Do you care nothing of the true life-and-death cruelty of her policies and the suffering she inflicted on millions?

Do you think just because she died that that wipes away all the horrible things she did?

Should people not remember that she considered Pinochet to be a friend and Nelson Mandela to be a terrorist?

Should her legacy be given a sparkly coat of paint so future politicians can point to her and say: "I'm just like that great leader, Margaret Thatcher!" like they do with Reagan?

Is there no spectrum of criticism allowed? Should we all say only glowing things of Hitler now or Cheney, after he dies?

Seriously, do you not understand how ridiculous and dangerous this speak-no-evil line of thinking is?

I am sorry for her family, and every death diminishes us.

But why may only her supporters speak of her and praise her simply because she is dead?

If the the critics are silent, then those who did not know her, those who did not suffer at her hand, will not know the truth.

Thatcher certainly did not hold her tongue when Irish hunger strikers were dying.

I do not see people telling critics of Pinochet, or Marcos, or Pol Pot, or Marshall Tito to "not speak ill of the dead". Why must Thatcher be given a pass?

71. It depends on what the anger is directed towards

if it is directed to her as a person, than I sort of agree - hatred is not good, no matter how deserving the person is of hated. If on the other hand it's directed towards the policies, philosophies and practices that Ms. Thatcher championed - well that's fair game. She spent her life working for world that was uglier and nastier - and a lot of people are pushing for those same programs and policies today.

And if the anger is directed at that, I don't see a problem.

94. Have you any idea what her policies did AND ARE STILL DOING to my country?

And no, none of us is perfect, but it's one thing not to be perfect, and another to turn one's country's policies way to the right; to promote a culture of greed, of harshness, of kicking people when they're down; to destroy most of a country's industrial base, throwing thousands out of work, destroying communities, and making us largely dependent on the financial industry (fastforward to 2008, and did you hear the eggs in our one basket go SMASH?)

Do you forgive Reagan? Will you forgive Bush and Cheney?

And the point is that those who won't let her spirit rest are first and foremost those on the Right who are treating her as the great model for what a leader should be, and are promoting and extending her policies and viewpoints about society! As long as people still think that she made Britain great again; that 'sado-monetarism' (to quote a moderate of her own party); cutting public services and throwing people on the dole and then cutting the dole, etc; denying workers the right to union representation; privatizing everything that moves; throwing many into poverty and many more into fear of poverty that makes a mockery of her vaunted 'freedom' - so long as people are actively promoting such ideology as a Good Thing, then her spirit is NOT resting and is very active. And as long as it is, I will not shut up about opposing it.

This is not a long-ago crime that perhaps one might now forgive and forget; it is an ongoing crime, still being proudly carried out in her name.

I will not rejoice at her death, because in a sense she is not truly dead. As I wrote several years ago in a bitter parody of 'Joe Hill':

'From Major down to Blair and Brown;
From London to D.C.;
Where governments still crush the poor,
You'll there find Maggie T.!'


And in this respect Cameron, Osborne et al are keeping her spirit alive far more than Brown did!

I think you've insulted Mrs. Thatcher with your post

how can you ask us to forgive her for doing what she is proud of doing all her life?

forgive her? she must be rolling in her grave at the insult.

you are mocking her, saying she regrets what she doesn't regret.

she actually likes us liberals (which you are not one) because we loathe what she did and to her that is a badge of honor.

she is not offended by me or my hatred of what she did.

she is mortally offended by you for suggesting she regretted any of it.

And yes, of course, I realize that would be most everyone on the planet, as well as our planet itself, but the fact is, the suffering she and Reagan caused continues, and has grown immensely from the seeds of evil they planted in our world. So when people hate on Maggie and Ronnie, it's because people look around them at all the misery, poverty, injustice. and inequality, and they know that much of the evil they see around them is the direct result of the actions of two powerful, sociopathic fascists ~

Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.

Compare this:

President Obama hails Thatcher as "great champion of freedom."
Source: The Guardian

Barack Obama led tributes from the United States to the former British prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, whose death on Friday led to an outpouring of remembrances that went well beyond normal courtesies.

Obama described Thatcher as "one of the great champions of freedom and liberty" and a true friend to the US. Former president George HW Bush and the Republican House speaker John Boehner also paid generous tributes.

Read more: http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2013/apr/08/margaret-thatcher-dies-tributes-obama


To Obama's recent statement at the passing of President Hugo Chavez: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2013/03/06/obamas-atrocious-statement-on-tyrant-chavezs-death/

“At this challenging time of President Hugo Chavez’s passing, the United States reaffirms its support for the Venezuelan people and its interest in developing a constructive relationship with the Venezuelan government. As Venezuela begins a new chapter in its history, the United States remains committed to policies that promote democratic principles, the rule of law, and respect for human rights.”


Obama could have made the same statement about either, but instead showed where his affections lie.

which means you want me to:

not hate dictator Pinochet, whom she supported.

not hate calling Nelson Mandela a "terrorist"

not hate opposing actions to end apartheid in South Africa

not hate her position on nuclear arms reduction


see, since i don't hate her, but you are obviously disapproving what i do hate, therefore, you are requiring that i support Tory policies and hawkish war policies --because by opposing these things, you say that i am showing "hatred".

Is this from an organized religion, or your own personal spiritual belief system, or something else?

Where do you think the spirit "goes" or "is" if it can't cross over?

I put "goes" and "is" in quotes because I don't want to make assumptions about your spiritual beliefs. I am just not very familiar with this belief, and I am curious about it.

The way I see it, the fact that the British people paid her bills for treatment, care, housing, and so much else, when it is absolutely undeniable that she would have denied each and every one of them the same, is more than enough forgiveness than should have ever been afforded to this anti-human fascist fuck. By all rights they should have tossed her in the Thames to fend for herself - surely it's what she would have wanted.

Most of us, when we fuck up, don't fuck up the lives of millions of people and come out of it with a goddamned pension. So spare me that "we make mistakes" stuff. Especially considering none of it was a "mistake." Running over your neighbor's mailbox is a mistake. Horking on the prime minister's lap is a mistake. Enacting policy to crush the livelihoods of thousands, and other policies to strip protections from millions more, all while collaborating with another fascist fuck to create a war just to bolster your own position at home? That's not a mistake.

She comforted the comfortable and afflicted the afflicted. Like Reagan she didn't give a shit about the poor or the working class, so why should the poor or the working class care about her. She labeled Nelson Mandela a terrorist and she stood against the anti apartheid movement in South Africa. She was a horrible person and she does not deserve the elevation to sainthood the Reagan got here in America. So like Reagan I hope she found a nice hot place in the pits of hell.

285. Oh, please.

Are you suggesting that the minute a person dies they must never again be criticized because it might cause their "spirit" some unrest? So we can't offer any discussion of the ways in which Thatcher (for example) implemented policies that damaged Britain's economy, for example -- if, for no other reason, to offer a reasoned analysis of why her policies (loved also by Reagan, whom I was happy to criticize while he was both alive and dead) were harmful so maybe they won't be tried again? I assume Thatcher has family who loved her and mourns her death, and of course one should be respectful of that - It would be quite wrong to go to her funeral and walk up to her son and say, "You know, your mother was a vicious old cow and I'm glad she's dead." But don't tell us that death automatically immunizes one from criticism; it doesn't.

And I'm definitely not worrying about hurting the feelings of the spirits of Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Vlad the Impaler, Joe McCarthy, Richard Nixon, or any of the other people who are now dead but who did great harm while they were alive.

There is a middle ground. While one should refrain from unnecessary viciousness, legitimate criticism does not become illegitimate when a person dies.

I do think that this article makes some very good points: http://www.salon.com/2013/04/09/thatcher_warren_haters_dont_cheer_for_death/ "Nobody’s saying you have to be sad Margaret Thatcher has shuffled off this mortal coil, or making you send a sympathy card to Rick Warren. Nobody’s saying, in fact, that you have to take a single day off from despising either of them. Just don’t be a jackass, OK? Few of us will ever attain much power and influence in our lives, but when we’re gone all of us will be measured by how we’re remembered. And who’d ever want to be remembered as the person who saw a family’s loss and celebrated?"

I will never have respect for a human being who did so much evil to so many people even when they die,to respect evil people in death is to reward their actions in life, this is her punishment for destroying the lives of so many a legacy that we should fight hard never to let be repeated and this is the best time to fight this rewriting of history, most american's didn't even know who she was until she died and the right will not stop to make her out to be a saint.

Also forgiveness is reserved for those that are sorry for their harm full actions she was not because she would proudly do it again.

Criticizing her, scorning her beliefs and strongly disapproving of her policies, even to the point of shaming her while she was alive is all good and I agree should be done.

However, grave dancing is bad karma, IMO. I just don't do it. There's something creepy about it. We don't have to give up our fundamental beliefs not to engage that that level. We can do better...

314. Actually, it's pretty glaringly obvious you sympathize with the woman

and it's equally obvious you don't give two flying shits WHAT she did.

In that sense, you're JUST AS BAD as she was. You don't get to defend evil like this and not take its side.

That isn't how it works. Period.

THIS is what and who you are defending, tool:

She supported the retention of capital punishment

She destroyed the country’s manufacturing industry

She voted against the relaxation of divorce laws

She abolished free milk for schoolchildren (“Margaret Thatcher, Milk Snatcher”)

She supported more freedom for business (and look how that turned out)

She gained support from the National Front in the 1979 election by pandering to the fears of immigration

She gerrymandered local authorities by forcing through council house sales, at the same time preventing councils from spending the money they got for selling houses on building new houses (spending on social housing dropped by 67% in her premiership)

She was responsible for 3.6 million unemployed - the highest figure and the highest proportion of the workforce in history and three times the previous government. Massaging of the figures means that the figure was closer to 5 million

She ignored intelligence about Argentinian preparations for the invasion of the Falkland Islands and scrapped the only Royal Navy presence in the islands

The poll tax

She presided over the closure of 150 coal mines; we are now crippled by the cost of energy, having to import expensive coal from abroad

She compared her “fight” against the miners to the Falklands War

She privatised state monopolies and created the corporate greed culture that we’ve been railing against for the last 5 years

She introduced the gradual privatisation of the NHS

She introduced financial deregulation in a way that turned city institutions into avaricious money pits

She pioneered the unfailing adoration and unquestioning support of the USA

She allowed the US to place nuclear missiles on UK soil, under US control

Section 28 (preventing discussion of homosexuality in schools and allowing anti-homosexual teaching)

She opposed anti-apartheid sanctions against South Africa and described Nelson Mandela as “that grubby little terrorist”

She support the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia and sent the SAS to train their soldiers

She allowed the US to bomb Libya in 1986, against the wishes of more than 2/3 of the population

She opposed the reunification of Germany

She invented Quangos

She increased VAT from 8% to 17.5%

She had the lowest approval rating of any post-war Prime Minister

Her post-PM job? Consultant to Philip Morris tobacco at $250,000 a year, plus $50,000 per speech

The Al Yamamah contract (Saudi arms deal - complete with backhanders)

She opposed the indictment of Chile’s General Pinochet

Social unrest under her leadership was higher than at any time since the General Strike

She presided over interest rates increasing to 15%

BSE

She presided over 2 million manufacturing job losses in the 79-81 recession

She opposed the inclusion of Eire in the Northern Ireland peace process

She supported sanctions-busting arms deals with South Africa

Cecil Parkinson, Alan Clark, David Mellor, Jeffrey Archer, Jonathan Aitkin (all were investigated or imprisoned)

Crime rates doubled under Thatcher

Black Wednesday – Britain withdraws from the ERM and the pound is devalued. Cost to Britain - £3.5 billion; profit for George Soros - £1 billion

Poverty doubled while she opposed a minimum wage

She privatised public services, claiming at the time it would increase public ownership. Most are now owned either by foreign governments (EDF) or major investment houses. The profits don’t now accrue to the taxpayer, but to foreign or institutional shareholders.

She cut 75% of funding to museums, galleries and other sources of education

In the Thatcher years the top 10% of earners received almost 50% of the tax remissions

21.9% inflation

---

Taken together and coming out of one person, it's a collection of evil, of darkness of soul and basic lack of grace and humanity for whom hate is not only justified, not only appropriate, but fully righteous and entirely within the bounds of every definition of decency, morality, and ethical human behavior.

Your continuing defenses of her say a very great deal about you, personally.

That is the furthest possible thing from a compliment to you personally I can think of. Your utter lack of condemnation of the type of person who could do such things, and your continuing sole concern that we have to be polite now that she's finally in the ground where she belongs, MAKES YOU HER LACKEY, MAKES YOU HER SYCOPHANT, MAKES YOU HER ADMIRER.

That you do not get that is conclusive proof that you don't care what she did.

Get it now?

319. Oh, horseshit.

The death of someone as vile as Maggie refocuses attention on her past and what she did to undeserving and innocent people like no other event possibly could. By telling us all to shut up (and that is EXACTLY what you've been doing ALL DAY LONG) and "be nice to her ghost" you're telling us we aren't allowed to condemn the woman and the actions she took. Personal decision, even on matters of policy, do not take place in a vacuum. They are shaped by one's own morals, biases, and senses of ethics and duty to one's fellows. Thatcher utterly betrayed all of that in dozens of ways, and the entire world has paid the price.

That IS defending her, in the smarmiest, greasiest, most propagandistic way you ever possibly could. SHAME on you.

You appreciate what she did. You agree with it, all of it. If you did not, you would be silent in the face of others' condemnations. No moral or ethical or even basically decent person can defend the evils of one such as her, including or perhaps especially following that person's death, yet you have done so at every possible opportunity.

This has nothing to do with you actually believing it's wrong to speak ill of the dead, because the dead are dead. They don't and can't care, even if there is such a thing as a spirit and an afterlife. They have moved on, and it matters not- not one little bit at all- what we in this world have to say about them. Everything you've been saying on this thread is a logically illegitimate rhetorical tool designed specifically to attempt to silence the condemnation of evil you, personally, admire, even if the afterlife is fact.

It goes a great deal further than that, though. If karma and an afterlife do in fact exist, we are recognizing evils done by one person to a very great many innocents. We are recognizing the good in ourselves by condemning that person and their acts against those innocents. We are, in effect, celebrating life, by celebrating the death of a cancer to life. By telling us we aren't allowed to tie the evil to the (wo)man who did it, you are claiming evil people cannot be condemned when they are gone.

That means you're carrying their water, even if you don't intend it. That means you're upholding their legacy, even if you don't intend it. That means you believe they were not, in fact, bad people worthy of condemnation, even if you don't intend it. That makes you, in general and in detail, one of the lieutenants of the very darkness whose departure we are celebrating, even if you don't intend it.

In a word, that makes you wrong, first to last. Entirely. Wholly. And you are not in any position at all to lecture any of us for celebrating their departure. You are mistaking a celebration of life's and time's justice for hatred, and in that act, you only betray and ultimately condemn yourself.

You have my pity. You have my sympathy. But you do not have my attention or my obedience, and you do not have any say in the matter.

You are.... powerless. As you should be.

346. " you are powerless. as you should be "

 



Is that so? Lmao!! Says who, Occulus?

I don't need others to agree with me, I knew it will fall on deaf ears considering the previous threads.

The one powerless is you since you have to resort to insults to push your point. Lol

315. No. No rest for her "spirit". It is by her own actions that she left the world owing a karmic debt.

Nothing changes that debt, it is hers and hers alone.

323. I'll respect her rotting corpse, but not her legacy.

If her spirit has a problem with that, it can take it up with me personally in the next life. It certainly has no use for your defense of it in this one.

325. What "spirit"?

What a fucking DISGUSTING means to try to shut down criticism of "baroness" Thatcher's crimes against humanity. To appeal for protecting of her "spirit being". LOL. What a joke! She was a terrible person in life and should be remembered so in death.

340. Hate is a progressive virtue

I doubt anyone would want to live in England '79 if they could flee, most things got better, some got worse.

At least they replaced coin operated power boxes with coin operated politicians in the end
