    She hurt the feelings of her opponents you mean? I'm not sure the msm was ever much on her side.

    "Meme" has really caught on, it seems.

    I said and meant alienated. Something about Ms. Thatcher was like she had stepped out of the 50's, which , of course, explains her appeal to the American Right. What was "alienating" was the utter absurdity of even imagining you could teleport an entire civilization back in time. Sort of Pol Potish..........................

    Weren't the British people quite happy in the 1950's, with the victory over the Nazis and all that hope for the future? In fact 'the American Right' didn't vote for Mrs.Thatcher, the British people did.

    Do you believe Pol Pot was seeking a return to the 1950's for the Cambodian people?

    No. I believe the American and Britsh conservatives implemented a radical rightwing social experiment and we are living with the consequences. I say "consquences" because that experiment wasn't merely a failure, it was a national disaster for both countries................

    The idea that you could take a late 20th century world power and magically transport it back 50 years in time foreign policy wise, 200 years back in time legally, and 3,000 years back in time socially.........................

    If so quote the passage and get back to me, okay?

    It seems you've spent too much time in a northern pub.
    The meaning of your post was quite clear.

    And at least when I speak about northern pubs, I know what I'm talking about. They tend to be populated by hard working, hard drinking men. As I said, stick to London if you ever visit. You'll be much more comfortable there.

    No, actually they weren't very happy in the 1950's. They still had food rationing from the Second World War for part of it. It's hard to be deliriously happy when you still have food rationing.

    Now this is complete ignorance. Protestants have their own little country cause called Northern Ireland because their rights and "way of life" were protected by the British Government. Instead of turning over the WHOLE island to the Irish people.. partition was done and led to another 80 years of favoritism towards Protestants. Reality is they have a right to move back to Scotland as well. They also have a right to finally accept they are Irish after spending 400 years in Ireland and being on their 8th, 9th and 10th generation of being born in Ireland. But nah.. they are "special" people.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken
