I don’t usually discuss politics here, but I do honour this great lady who served our country by conviction and altruism. I am old enough to remember the years between the administration of Edward Heath, his resignation, the Labour fiasco of Jim Callaghan and the vote of no-confidence – and the election of Mrs Thatcher in 1979. Our country was an utter mess and the strikes were never-ending.
The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.
How true! It doesn’t grow on trees!
I viscerally protest the various songs and other demonstrations rejoicing in Mrs Thatcher’s death, especially as she did not die in office but after many years of retirement and illness. It is understandable that people of left-wing political opinions are opposed to Conservatism or the values of Mrs Thatcher’s party, but this kind of mocking and rejoicing is inhuman.
She served our country and she did her best in a very difficult situation.
Requiescat in pace.
