This topic, and the vile vitriol aimed toward an ill elderly lady spilling from the mouths of the cocksure cyber pundits, strengthens my growing hate for the majority of the general public.
Part of the desease of this country is the left wing school system and media corporation filling your all to hungry for hatred minds with ammunition.
One day people will look at both sides of an argument and be able to make their own minds up.
Not in my life time though.
I just remember her for how she was in office and in personality, that's all.
Plain and simple. That memory is unavoidably tainted by what her policies deliberately inflicted on my region of the UK.
And I don't know what "left wing school system" (Hahahahaha!!!!) or "media corporation" you think have been filling my head with lefty ideological bias.
I happen to live in a former Communist area of Europe. As a result, I have ZERO
affection for turgid leftist dogma. Nor the appalling after-effects that are still apparent in the lack of transferable skills, innovation, entrepreneurial nous, self-reliance etc. etc.
You don't HAVE to be a raving Trotskyite to detest Thatcher.
We agree on one thing - I honestly think it WILL take longer than your (mine too) lifetime for the wounds to heal sufficiently so that Thatcher's legacy can be appraised from a historical perspective.
Until then, the past is too raw. If that's "bias", then so be it. I still hate her.
