    Thatcher's funeral is not a state funeral so there are no obligations to invite everyone. The actual occasion will be more like Diana's or the Queen Mother's funerals. We didn't invite everyone to that either.

    Stop your silly posturing and saying you don't hate anyone when clearly you hate Thatcher and spew hate and vileness.
    Totally and utterly and forever evil, as you know. We are living through the results of her insane policies, as you know. Stop posturing and look at the evil she and her stinking gang did to Britain. Amongst other things, the other countries will never consent to live with the squalid spite and bullying that her forelock-tuggers in England go in for, so she's done for the UK.

    Third, if you can stick to Thatcher in a thread about Thatcher, that would be great.
    This is about Maggie and her screw up in Northern Ireland. People wanted to give her credit on Sun.. agreement. Then fail to accepted she had policies contrary to that agreement weeks after signing it. And it was you that brought up the other stuff, not I. But they have no constitutional right if there is no constitution. UK has no constitution but various laws and agreements that can change at anytime. Like, say Irish Republican's voting rights in Northern Ireland. US has a constitution and people have constitutional rights. Both forms struggle with problems but at the end of the day people assert their constitutional rights in court, while the other requires Government to give that right.

    To try and bring some relevance back to this, Conservative "England" lost Scotland after Thatcher a while ago. If Scotland (minus the oil bearing Islands that have no allegiance to Edinburgh) go their own way - that is their right in their referendum.
    Yes, England would lose those areas to Scotland. What the Shetlanders do after that requires an agreement between Scotland and them which could take years. Then if Shetland leaves it would take a while after that to decide where they go. So it could be years after that before they would rejoin England or stay independent themselves.
    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
