You would think its as low as it can get when at your so called rallys you burn our troops in effigy but now this to say the things they have after she has died is unforgiveable, For once I am at a loss for words. You lefties should be ashamed of yourself and be denoucing these activities.

    I do believe the word you are looking for here is "sociopath" rather than "psychopath". It is sociopathy which has been much publicized by way of incidence among the more agressive business people.

    No, it wasn't, but in comparison to how it is today, peachy might be a reasonable description. I remember the 70s fine, and I remember how much worse were the early-to-mid-Eighties and the early Nineties. Bust after artificial boom, after bust. We're in another bust at present, but my assessment of Thatcher is far from being all about economic policy. It's about NI policy, foreign, social, health and education policy. She was terrible on all of those, so I'd be critical even if she had effected the great economic miracle that you seem to be claiming. But she didn't.

    Unlike yours, his assessment is nearer reality than the twaddle you're peddling.

    Repetition does nothing but underscore idiocy.

    You've got a copy of a psychologist's report to prove this?

    Context is important methinks. Were these ordinary people in NHS hospitals? Chinese prisons? IRA prisoners - where do you stand on the claims by Gerry Adams and the counter claims by Richard O’Rawe on the decisions made inside and outside the prisons?

    BBC Link. Conqueror staff recall sinking of Belgrano - includes some background.

    No surprise that the unions don't recall her fondly.

    I'm all ears for how today is worse than the 1970's. You made the claim, please back this up.

    You're going to claim the credit crunch is down to Thatcher?

    I'm all ears for how the economy otherwise turned around from where it was heading throughout the 1970's to where we've been the last 20 years.
