Re: Margaret Thatcher

Everyone always looks on what they perceive to be the bad side and never see what the true underlying facts were.

AFAIK it wasn' t thatcher that tolled the bell for the mining industry it was themselves, unions forcing the pay up and the cost of coal so we had to buy it from abroad. The Poll tax - yes it was a higher tax on us but that was about 30 years ago, successive governments could have done away with it but have they? no.

She had backbone and stood up for what she thought unlike the backstabbing wimps we have had in government since.

I am absolutely disgusted by some of the comments that I have seen on the death of an old lady, (and by people to young to actually have been affected by her) respect for someone's life & their death it seems seems to have been forgotten.
