    Do you have a link to that?

    I can't help but think of Madiba here, especially as he is now 94 and in poor health himself. Her stance on dismissing the ANC as "a typical terrorist organisation", whilst being so at ease with the notion of apartheid, was one of her greatest misjudgments imo. Difficult to forgive her for that but i also won't speak ill of her now she has passed. She divided the world when she was alive and will still do it now she's dead.

    RIP and sympathy to her loved ones.

    well from the postings I have seen, the side that tends to oppose the meritorious while supporting the slothful are the ones whining about her

    The EU perhaps... but not the EC which she championed...

    The socialists screwed up the country in the 1970s. She helped save it and make Britain more competitive in the world

    She was not easy at all with apartheid. She just didn't think that sanctions were constructive. They only hurt the Blacks and others in the working classes. She was right about that. She hated Botha and welcomed DeKlerk as someone who could be worked with.
