    Where did you get this information? I've read her biography, Reagan's, and an insider's account by John Sullivan and, while they had there disagreements in always putting the long term interest of their country's first, they were as close on the fundamentals as two leaders can be.

    Are you saying he can dish it out but can't take it?

    How about it, Andy? Is this true?

    thats not the issue, the issue people are taking is his "lack of respect" but he and many other people didnt respect her. My mother's brother, father and freinds all lost their jobs during the closure of the mines and she survived on scraps during the strikes, she posted a picture today with a bottle of champagne she saved from her dad's funeral a couple years ago. She was celebrating. This women cuts very deep into the British working classes.

    For all the IDIOTS here (sorry, moderators, I was looking for a better word, but - you know -mon Inglese est plötzlich no bueno):

    The 20th century had actually happened. None of us (left or right, here ) wanted it to be that way. But it was pretty much beyond our control.

    The Lady T., and the Pope (John Paul II) Wojtyla, and Reagan - they did - about the maximum of that could have been done, on OUR behalf - "we" having been trapped in a nightmare you- with all due respect for your virgin, untested minds - cannot even imagine.

    I know there will be monuments to Margaret Thatcher in Poland, in Estonia, in Russia (if it ever overthrows its bloodsucking putinist kakistokracy), maybe in New Hampshire as well.

    I will certainly send my contribution.

    You're not exactly hiding what your problem really is here.

    Btw, Britain has never protected free speech and no one cares about your milk job.

    How did she push for class warfare?

    You seem to be making this very personal...

    Losing their jobs in the mines was probably the best thing that happened to them over the long term. If these mines were productive and paying for themselves they would never have been closed, or they would be reopened by now. Do miners really have to be told that coal doesn't continue forever? That they might look for other alternatives before the coal runs out? Are they still living on scraps? Of course there are also the environmental factors coal creates.

    I certainly don't mind discussing the issues regarding Margaret Thatcher but there is little of that. Instead she is 'evil and ghastly' and support for this opinion is being drawn from satirical comedy shows. It is showing more self disrespect than it is toward Margaret Thatcher, and I am only pointing out this irony.

    You're a rational conservative, Moon. You should have seen the frenzy his death caused here. It would make you think that the OP in this thread had written a beautiful and loving eulogy towards Thatcher.

You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”
