  • Is that shadow meant to be a bloodstain?

    In the light of the truly vile and repulsive grave-dancing that seems to have taken hold of people, here and in the wider British society, an outbreak of spittle-flecked hatred that I imagine many of the people who are indulging in it will later ponder on and regret (I hope). I would like to ask the people who are gleefully celebrating the death of an old lady they never met, this question (and as there appears to be three threads on this now, I’ll post in all three);

    What is so unique about Margaret Thatcher’s political and government record that has your hearts filling with such sheer delight at her demise?

    Compared to contemporaries like Brezhnev, Castro, Adams, Bush, Mitterand, Mubarak, Galtieri, Deng Xiao Ping, Andropov, Zia al-Huq, Ghaddaffi, Honeckker, Caucescu, Ortega, Saddam, Pinochet, Suharto, John Paul II, Mugabe, Begin, Indira Ghandi, Ayatollah Khomeini, Giscard D’Estaing, Mobuto, or their successors like Blair, Clinton, Putin, Bush (again), Chirac, Chavez, Netanyahu, Ahmadinajad, Assad, Osama Bin Laden, most of whose passing would merit a mere “oh such-and-such is dead”, what was so uniquely evil about Margaret Thatcher that has you expressing such personal and shameful glee at her death?

    Probably, Harry because she and the philosophy she espoused had such an enormous impact on so many people’s day to day lives in these islands, particularly in places like the north of England and Scotland. The people you mention, many of whom were / are repugnant scumbags simply didn’t make that much difference to our everyday existences.
