    Interesting – she allow the British Public to become shareholders (remember “Tell Sid” if those shareholders sell to foreign investors for a quick buck – then it is not Baroness Thatcher’s fault) She forced the Labour Councils to allow the “poor” people to become home owners and allow them to take an interest in their homes. Rather than wait for some inefficient council to send out their maintenance department to fix something, she empowered people to take responsibility.

    The National Health Service was/is a black hole, and throwing money at it does not help. You have to be efficient with the resources you have. Something the then managers did not realise.

    She had a set of principles and stuck to them. This made European & British politics interesting.

    It is interesting that most of the people on both sides of the house give tribute to her, Of course there are a minority who believe in the politics of envy – “Red” Ken Livingstone for one – who gladly speak ill of the dead.

    At what point does media coverage become necrophilia? Because we’ve gone past that point in less than a day. The reality is that new of Thatcher’s death was greeted with spontaneous celebration in many parts of England. Her economic policies hurt a lot of people and are a big contributor to the current mess that the whole world finds itself in.

    I’d love to hear what omqR has to say about this lady. From what I was able to gather:

    1. Thatcher was remembered as The Iron Lady only because she possessed completely negative traits such as persistent stubbornness and a determined refusal to listen to others.

    2. Every move she made was charged by negativity; she destroyed the British manufacturing industry, she hated the miners, she hated the arts, she hated the Irish Freedom Fighters and allowed them to die, she hated the English poor and did nothing at all to help them, she hated Greenpeace and environmental protectionists, she was the only European political leader who opposed a ban on the ivory trade, she had no wit and no warmth and even her own cabinet booted her out.

    3. She hated feminists even though it was largely due to the progression of the women’s movement that the British people allowed themselves to accept that a prime minister could actually be female. But because of Thatcher, there will never again be another woman in power in British politics, and rather than opening that particular door for other women, she closed it.

    In other words Andy Davison had it right.
