    Did you consider Ted Kennedy evil, by chance?

    Your petty venality is indeed your own business, she's dead dude. That apology wasn't worth what it took to type it, its quite insincere.

    True that. I don't feel the same about Heath, Major or Cameron. They were/are Conservatives, but behaved in an entirely different way when they were in power.

    I have been studying her the last week or so and I have to say I imagine your problem is that she just put people like you in your place.

    You're not sorry if it offends, and there is obviously more respect for this "ghastly, wicked woman" than there is for you.

    She was elected by the British more more than once and I strongly I doubt they support evil and wickedness. She made her mark on history going against the best the world had had to offer, whereas you just send anonymous hate mail to an obscure internet debate broad. Quite a substantial difference.

    I dont understand why so many of you have taken offence to Andy's position? Why should he respect someone in death that he hated in the world of the living? Andy lived in the UK during the 1980's and has earned an opinion on this subject doesnt matter if you agree with him or not.
