    Oh yes! She transformed the country from 'Sick man of Europe' and had big hand in what it is today.

    The 'spontaneous' applause was memorable. Finally, she succeeded in uniting the entire country.

    Please do not pretend that Thatcher ever united this country.

    She won three elections, largely because of her poisoned rhetoric against immigrants, gays and 'scroungers'. Oh, and of course the Falklands, for which she should have been imprisoned for war crimes.

    Our free market economy failed then, and is failing now. Millions of people were actively, and by actively I mean deliberately, pushed into poverty, while the already colossal proportion of wealth in the hands of the rich swelled.

    Indeed, given that most Thatcherites judge her on her ability to get our economy going, they are clearly misinformed. British economic growth was fixed roughly at about 2.2%, roughly the same as had occurred in the 70s. Wages are lower, more people are unemployed, and Britain is still recovering from an economic crash that was largely caused by financial deregulation.

    On what grounds can any human being, with any compassion or sense, glorify Thatcher.

    I fear not the neggers.

    Your deluded. Take to liberalist bull**** somewhere else.

    Under labour prior to 1979 the country was an absolute shambles, held to ransom by the unions. Any idiot can see that she left the country in a better state than she found it, but judging on your ridiculous statements, your not any idiot, your the biggest idiot.

    Still can't believe she has gone
    I was so sad to hear about her passing. I only hope that this inspires a new generation of conviction politicians to pick up her ball and take this country to greener pastures free of collectivism.

    I have to question what you think she did to deserve the bizarrely excessive eulogising and reverence you and others are exhibiting right now. Do you really, seriously think Britain was some sort of East Germany before she took over and she liberated the slaves from their cruel socialist overlords? Lol. More like the other way round.

    BTW, there was an excellent documentary about her last night on BBC Parliament which was full of interviews with people who knew her and worked with her during her years as PM, which gives a somewhat more balanced picture, for people who actually want to learn about the reality of those years and not some ****-eyed student right-wing headbanger neocon madman view of it.

    Your opinion of her policies is different to the death of an elderly lady. You seem to forget that she was just an honest woman doing what she thought was right, not an evil dictator with the wrong intentions.

    Calm down.

    You're a meanie... I have to admit my husband has been taking the mick too, not helped by the fact that my in laws are Socialists.



    I always wanted to be the second female Prime Minister, she is an inspiration to me.
    i find this deification of such an evil woman sickening and the political point scoring by the current bunch of toffs is enough to make me want to cut off contact with the world.

    so you think a woman who destroyed the north, put in place the reforms that caused todays financial crisis, denied the existence of society, broke the working classes only chance at decent conditions and negotiating ability, deserves all the hero worship she has had from the past few days? well i dont, she was evil and the damage she caused is still with us today. and she certainly didnt deserve what was a state funeral in all but name.

    She helped bring an end to the Cold War, helped end apartheid, defended our sovereignity overseas while others wanted to find diplomatic negotiations to retake the Falkland Islands, she saved our country from it's disastrous conomic situation during the 70s.

    God bless Margaret Thatcher.

    And God Bless her grandson, that guy is sooo hot.
