    Classic, no matter what you think about thatcher policy wise, she could certain teach todays politicians a thing or two about growing a pair.

    You could say the same about Hitler, he was just a person with feelings whether or not you agree with his politics, but alot of people were happy when he died.
    Hitler killed people, so it's a bit different.

    Who racked up the credit card again?
    I expect the spike in the mid-90's was because of the recession of 1992. Other than that it looks about even. The financial crisis started in America and has affected countries across Europe. Governments are largely powerless in the face of economic forces and cannot really be blamed, I don't think.

    Killing people is not line. What she done was shocking.

    Speaking as someone who knows nothing of politics, where do you think Britain would be now if Thatcher had never been in power?

    Wow, that's a very instructive graph. I wish I could find these things as easily as you seem to!

    Sure, but Hitler and Thatcher were both utterly conceited and utterly indifferent to the suffering their policies would inflict, in that respect they're not too different. Thatcher also, interestingly, had a soft spot for Chilean fascist dictator Augusto Pinochet. Just sayin'

    Isn't she dead yet? I've got a whisky on standby to celebrate when that force of evil journeys into hell.
    Given that you probably weren't even born when she was PM what is your beef with her?

    Thatcher believed her politics were for the eventual benefit of all, Hitler intentionally killed groups of people

    I disagree that Thatcher caused unnecessary suffering and was indifferent to it.

    The pit strike I assume? How did it affect you?

    And remember that I come from a family of pit workers and had several uncles who were made redundant and who would kick your head in if you suggested reopening the pits.

    and for anyone else who thinks that mines are a good idea then I have one word for you - Chile.

    No, she didn't believe that at all. She was a self-consciously middle-class snob and it was that section of society which might have been called the 'well to do' she was pandering to. Thatcher hated working class people who didn't aspire to take on the airs and graces of those 'above them', she hated working-class culture and working-class power. And everything else I said still stands - she was utterly conceited and utterly indifferent to the suffering she caused, indeed I think she probably enjoyed crushing thousands of mining families' livelihoods.
