RIP Ma'am.

Last of the great characters in UK politics - like her of loath her all politicians since have just been bland and lacking individuality. She was certainly one of a kind.

and from millions of people who lost their livlihoods. particularly the Welsh.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I think perhaps "she was a great character" is the most tactful thing that one can say, and I think I'll leave it at that.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Some will think that now there is only Gorbachev to die and all the destroyers will be gone......
Curious thing free speech sometimes, curious country UK sometimes, seems full of spite against itself. This link appeared on a Russian blog a short while ago. I make no comment about the Iron Lady, may she rust in peace, but what to make of this link, even though it causes a faint smile....

Its a bit sick.

She is something to be studied when it comes to smashing unions, pritivisation and free enterprise. Of course that means she has a few enemies out there. They could at least show some respect though such websites are poor taste.

I honestly don't know enough about her to make a comment on her years in power.  An old lady has died though and for that I am sad, I am sure there are many who won't lose any sleep over it.  RIP Iron Lady, thoughts to her family.

All those who show sympathy for the Iron Lady should have been living in the industroialized north of Britain during her Premiership. They should also talk to the many people she made homeless over that period. The communitees shes destroyed. They should maybe consider that she was one of the main instigators of the Bull market which has inevitably caused the Crash of the Credit crunch which we now live through.

She has far to many things to answer for to be missed.

I think you will find that that website echo's the sentiments of at least half of the population of Britain.

Is it only me who finds it ironic that the Liberal Left, who have laboured tirelessly for years to turn almost every conceivable action, thought and deed perpetrated by those who dare to oppose them, into some kind of hate crime, are themselves the most vociferous of all when it comes to dishing out venom by the bucket-load when it suits them?
