    Must confess, I appreciate the humour. The play on words, as well as the linking of iron – rust appeals to my sense of humour.

    (Yes I am a Brit, and yes I agreed with “Maggie”)

    I remember an LP sleeve from around 1970 where the 4 band members peed on a monolith. Replace the monolith with this.
    Rust in pieces iron lady. BTW, iron is the main ingredient in steel. A Soviet leader, the monster joseph stalin (real name iosip jugashvili), took the name stalini, the Russian name for steel. maggie was only one step away from that.
    capitalism, fascism and communism are all “right” and far “right” systems and ideologies. capitalsm/fascism and communism are opposite sides of the same worthless coin.

    Thank you. Now we know how Low Information Voters compare capitalism and communism.

    She brought England out of the highest unemployment in history with a conservative, small government approach.

    MOST Brits will be forever grateful!

    Thatcher’s neo-liberal policies increased sales taxes, making the numbers of poor people larger and the unemployment levels grew as the rich moved their money offshore.
    .
    Classical neoliberalism’s respect for tradition, combined with its pragmatic approach to progress, endeared it to conservative movements around the world looking for a way to adapt to the changing nature of the modern world. This saw it adopted by conservative movements, most famously in Chile under Pinochet, the United Kingdom under Margaret Thatcher and in the United States of America under Ronald Reagan.

    .
    Thatcher pushed hard for large-scale privatization, a policy which she helped make commonplace and legitimate throughout the world. She promoted the privatization of British Aerospace and Cable & Wireless, Jaguar, British Telecom, Britoil, and British Gas. After 1987 she proceeded to privatize British Steel, British Petroleum, Rolls Royce, British Airways, and water and electricity utilities. The massive privatization has brought short-term revenue to the British treasury, but the long-term income that these companies have generated over the years reached the pockets of private-capital owners.
    These policies had immediate and strong consequences for the British economy. The income levels of the richest 10 percent have increased rapidly, while the average income of the rest of the population remained stagnant.
    During Thatcher’s reign, inequality has risen sharply. The number of children living in poverty has more than doubled.
    .
    When Thatcher said there is no such thing as society, she demonstrated the extreme individualism promoted by the neoliberal economic school.This ideology enshrines liberty, and sees economic freedom (and the right to own property) as one of the most basic human rights.
    But despite the seeming liberal morals of neoliberalism, Thatcher’s politics were very conservative. While cutting public expenditure on welfare, she increased military spending to arm the British army for the Cold War.

    Just England? B-R-I-T-A-I-N. How hard can it be? :-|


    Anyway, your statement is also wrong as regards unemployment. Do you think if you repeat lies, they’ll stick?
    Unemployment grew sharply and emigration out of the country, too.

    “Unemployment


    As Britain learnt to come to terms with the idea of ‘no such thing as society’ [actual Thatcher quote], unemployment shot up under the Conservatives to levels not seen since the Great Depression. The figures show how it lags behind the economy – even after the recession was over, many were unemployed.”

    If you guys want to spout nonsense, stick to your own country.


    Also, there aren’t any statues of Thatcher so none to bring down. Actually, there was one and it was …yeah, decapitated

    Yes, another authoritarian female, like Hillary Clinton would fit the bill. Not what I would want in a leader. As in lead not dictate and destroy the weak and poor.

    @Ms. Ima

    You’d find that the British police would stop them is why. It won’t be like Iraq when the US invaded under false pretenses. (A war crime by the way.)

    Capitalism tempered by Socialism is the best combination.
    -
    Socialism energized by Capitalism is the best combination.
    =
    It works in our country, Canada, Europe and the richest of places that have the best distribution of wealth. Though Capitalism is gaining control and we see the outcome. Bad outcome.
