What a glowing legacy
Great she was
She just became a figure head for blame for the problems of the past
I MIGHT be argued (not be me) that the mass unemployment and collapse of British industry during the 1980s might have just been bad timing on her watch - the delayed results of previous mis-management and failure to adapt. But I'd have to be in a VERY magnanimous mood to hear out that argument. Because,as stated, it was the gloating, sermonising MANNER in which those devastating events were handled that did the most lasting damage. And sealed here reputation, in which she reveled.
But ALL the other needlessly punitive and vindictive policies that I mentioned (and many more that I've forgotten) were products of her own twisted, abhorrent view of society - A view that regarded those less fortunate as parasites to be punished, and which promoted boundless individualism, self-interest and greed as a holy doctrine.
AND she regarded Mad Ronnie Reagan as a sensible man and a best buddy, FFS!
Going out for a ride now, to calm my "Thatcher Rage".
