    Oh, sorry about that. Just put "Falklands War" into the search function and see all the threads that have been made about it in recent months.

    coming up to the Hillsborough anniversary too, very fitting. Justice for the 96.

    She was no politician, but Dorothy Parker had one of the greatest ever and one that might be most apropos for this thread.

    1. She destryoed British manufacturing industry quite deliberately.
    2. She created the service-sector-based economy that is currently delivering poverty and unemployment to the entire nation.
    3. She deliberately destroyed traditional working class communities and demonised their unions and their organisations.
    4. She mismanaged British overseas dependencies and this directly led to the Flaklands war. She shamelessly used the Falklands conflict in order to engineer her 1983 election victory. Prior to the Falklands her popularity was in the toilet.
    5. She sold off national assets to her carpet-bagging capitalist mates at rock-bottom prices, effectively giving public money to her political allies.
    6. She introduced a despotic and discriminatory poll tax that united the nation against her. She lost that one.
    7. She introduced legislation outlawing all mention of gays and lesbians in all schools.

    That's just seven reasons why I'm not mourning her.

    Our two countries seemed to have something of a parallel history, as Reagan's policies were so similar, it was almost as if there were a concerted effort to destroy the middle and working classes and engineer society towards some sort of neo-feudalism.

    see I have no problem with Thatchers Falkland war campaign it had to be done and she handled it well in my opinion.

    If she was a republican and worked with a monkey she would have been most glorious US leader ever. There is no way we are going to avoid weeks of really boring UK commentary are we? Oh well, I was getting a bit bored of Ebert articles anyway.
