On a more cheerful note I have some decent champagne in the fridge that I'll be opening later.

Sad to hear Margaret Thatcher the "Iron Lady" has passed away. A great PM for Britain. RIP Margaret Thatcher.

Link.

I'm saddened to see that she passed away as she was the leading force against socialism in the UK. R.I.P. Margaret Thatcher.
She was also the leading force against the wellbeing of the UK as a whole. She damaged the country more than the Germans did during WW2.
-She introduced a poll tax.
-She destroyed British mining and manufacturing.
-Her war against drugs caused UK's heroin epidemic.
-The country had staggering unemployment and inflation under her watch.
-She took power away from local governments and unions in order to create a strong centralized (inefficient) government.
-She's generally remembered as a reversed Robin Hood. The rich got richer while unions were destroyed and mining towns turned into ghost towns.

She's UK's version of Reagan - absolutely terrible.

Definitely one of her top quotes where she destroyed socialism. Not a perfect Conservative but still better than some of the other PM's they had.

OP you should mention her name in the title and the thread will get much more attention that it desperately needs.

I expected no less from some of you.
Same. These scoundrels are truly pathetic excuses for human beings who are happy that someone is dead. They are so warped in their hatred of opposing ideology that they show how worthless they truly are.

Care to say the same things about leftists? Or say it to their faces? Nah, Your nothing but a coward.
I wonder if they'll give her the Cromwell treatment, its what she deserves.

I know the righties on here are ignorant to the point of hilarity, but what good things did she accomplish exactly?
