I heard this rumour from somebody. Apparently some high ranking member of the church let it slip at some dinner. Thinking about placing a bet if there's any bookies running it.

There's a particularly socialist college at my uni that's got funds to throw a large party when she does die :p:

History will be a huge fan. History is already begining to thank her by the day.

It's a rumour. That woman is made of Iron.

Yes, saving Britain's arse by salvaging unproductive assets and reorganising our economy, making us all wealthy today, did take a heartless prime minister,

You mean the woman who neglected all those poor minors. Face it, reforms/improvements came at a social cost; and not everybody liked her style or decisions like you did.

All those poor minors? What about the poor NON-minor population of the country who had to sunsidise a few hundred pits because they were making zero profit. What happened to those regions was terrible, but no right minded, strong, tory prime minister will pretend the economy is okay by throwing money at the problem. Thatcher was a heroine, and like I say, pretty much every other EU country followed Thatcherism when she left office, the woman saved Britain, *face it*

You mean with all that unemployment, social unrest and greedy culture? She helped accelerate the global shift of power away from accountable governments into the hands of transnational corporations and their lobbyists: she championed the supremacy of financial values over human ones. A lot of her legacy was disastrous - an enormous increase in unemployment, the collapse of manufacturing industry and the doubling of inflation. There is no way of regarding that as a good thing.

Unemployment is significantly higher today then it ever was under Thatcher.

Social unrest? Have you been to any midium-sized town on a friday night recently? Have you been in a state comprehensive school recently?

Greedy culture? If greed is telling the unwilling to get a job, get an income, pay your dues and enjoy your rewards and expect no free handouts, then yes, she created greed.

Fine, i will put some things down, though this will not be anything near exhaustive:
1. Homes for Votes. You should be able to find out about that with a quick google if you need me to prove it to you.
2. Poll tax. Seem to remember that one causing riots.
3. Falklands war. She seemed to go to war to revive her flagging poll ratings.
Could you answer my questions now?

Poll tax is implemented across the UK today, it has a different name.

The Falklands war was a stand-up to autocratic facism - there were British citizens under seizure thousands of miles aware, vulnerable, defencless and terrified, eagerly waiting and relying on Britain to come to the rescue, and guess what, we did, and we won. The war was an act of principle and heroism, end of.

Two simple words: Poll tax.

I'll repeat. She helped accelerate the global shift of power away from accountable governments into the hands of transnational corporations and their lobbyists: she championed the supremacy of financial values over human ones. A lot of her legacy was disastrous - an enormous increase in unemployment, the collapse of manufacturing industry and the doubling of inflation. There is no way of regarding that as a good thing.

Hehehe. No. Because they say it all and much better than what I can be arsed to say.

She tolerated huge unemployment to keep inflation down and crushed the unions in an inhumane crusade. Her dealings with the miner strikes were appalling, disgraceful and downright shameful. Subjective, perhaps, however the day I admire a right wing ***** is the day pigs fly. That said, I don't wish her dead.

She tolerated unemployment to keep inflation down? Not being funny but waaaaay back then the UK Government controlled the bank of England; advice: try not to talk about what you know not.

Inhumane? She she order rifing squads? Again, select your words confidently, sure, but contextually, crucially.

You are giving me no reason as to why Thatcher is a '*****', it is widely established that she 'saved Britain' from being the sick man of Europe surrfering from 'socialist strangulation', to being a key player. You are talking s ***, if indeed, these are actually you words at all (he he, 'gotcha')
