I would also like to add, she was the longest serving prime minister and she was never voted out by the people, she stood down during leadership elections within the party.
I agree, i wonder of them actually know anything about her; as youy can see from my post, i think she was fantastic, gave people power, ambition and drive. These people are saying it because its the cool thing to do! I’m only 31, so was just a young lad while she was in power, but from what i saw and what I have read since, she was amazing. What she said she stood by we need someone with some balls now!
Really? WTF are these people on? Thatcher was without a doubt the best thing to happen to the UK in post war times. Forget the fact that a woman had died, a mother has died a woman has died she was what the UK needed in the 80s and without a doubt its what we need now. There were times where people were not about to find jobs, but I don’t see any difference now. The 80s were a time when people had more money than any other, more people becoming successful and more people having choice. At the time she took over, labour had completely screwed the UK, most of the work force were on strike; this includes rubbish collection, yes Leicester Sq. was a rubbish dump and while watching films rats would run across your feet, the dead lay unburied for weeks. there were daily power cuts in almost every home. Most industries had a closed shop which meant you HAD to join their union to work in the industry, TV, Journalism, Mining and may more… because of this, the unions held the country to ransom. People will always bring up the coal mines, how she shut them down and cost 1000s of people their jobs, but what they don’t say is that the mines were not profitable, they were costing the UK millions. The unions, said they were profitable, she told the unions that they could have the mines for free, run them and the profits would be that of the unions. Not one mine was taken on my any union. Thatcher gave people choice, the chance for people who had rented a home for generations to actually own it. The IRA and Jerry Adams say she let two IRA prisoners die while on hunger strike and this was wrong… A) they were in the IRA for bombing/planned bombing b) they were making demands and if she had given in, then this would of opened up the gates for more terrorist demands and finally and most importantly, c) no one made them go on hunger strike, they could of stopped and started eating at any time. Thatch had a good relationship with Regan and with Russia thus helping to open communications and start to end the cold war. Thatcher gave people choice, she gave them freedom, gave the chance to own home, to be successful. Thatcher was opposed to the EU, and everyone said this was wrong, now everyone the UK wants to get as far away from the EU as possible. The predicted the dangers of the single currency and wow, again she was right. I agree if you are happy to sit on your ass and get hand outs, or even to see other people sit on their ass while you work and pay for them, then she was rubbish, but if like me you have a passion to see your country be successful, to succeed in like, to see working people getting ahead rather than then people getting more for nothing than I do for working, to be filled with drive and ambition then she was the best the UK has seen, and maybe the world has seen. If she was so bad they why is Obama, The Queen, priminister past and present, presidents past and present and many famous people saying what wonderful things she had done. If she was that much of a bith, the queen wouldn’t give her the same funeral as the queen mother. sorry for the rant!
