Thatcher: Her achievement? People celebrating her death - justifiably
How many, and what were the characters of, people who have induced such unusual reactions to a persons death?
Not too many, and none too savoury.
Ignoring the Benito Mussolini, Augusto Pinochet, Nicolae Ceausescu, Idi Amin or Saddam Hussein - there are others equally as bad but celebrations would not have been tolerated politically - I can think of few who generated this public outpouring from apolitical members of the public - maybe bLIAR will get a similar treatment when his number comes up.
Since Thatcher ruled, the UK has been through THREE recessions, THREE RECESSIONS since World War 2.
She believed the UK economy could be built on a SERVICE economy - destroying the British manufacturing base (not SDK assembly) - you will have a hard job finding a British made screw. Where are our Plessey's, Marconi's or Leylands now?
She also set the 'Fat Cats' on their route to raping the industrial sector. Scargill got her right, she was anti-worker (and NO, I am not a Labour supporter). Who else has used Plod and the Armed Forces as suppression of democratic strikes and protests.
Although I left the UK many years ago, before Thatcher, I hoisted a 333 celebrating her death, along with all those 'street' celebrations that had to be broken up by Plod.
She screwed Britain, in a way that no one else has managed to do. Good riddance to her. And may she rot in Hell.
