    “Thank you Mrs Thatcher and Great Britain for defeating the Junta and therefore enabling the return of democracy to Argentina. We are forever in your debt” - is what CFK and Timmerman and Alicia Castro should be writing.

    Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Costa Rica...

    Same usual suspects as ever. South America better improve the relation with these neighbours if we wish to get rid of the last chains.
    Chile doesn't worry me, as Bachelet will win next elections, and our Chilean brothers have never been easy to silence, especially the students.

    Colombia still is under the steady grip of USA, and together with Mexico, they form the base for a multimillion dollar industry that is detestable. We will never get rid of the cartels as long as USA is involved. Too many interests from their part.
    As for Costa Rica, they merely follow the wind, and the island is windy...

    For the rest of Latin America; Splendid piece of work, don't forget a tweat to silence these monsters :)

    The official news agency blames Thatcher for the sinking of the Belgrano ...
    In a country where aid workers in the flooded areas are beating each other up on the streets to claim the political credit for their “ relief ” work , you just have to wonder how much lower the political leadership will stoop .

    In case anyone has forgotten, I can remind you.....

    Thatcher denounced Nelson Mandela and his ANC as “terrorists”, something even David Cameron ultimately admitted was wrong.

    What kind of 'great' leader would have called Mandela a terrorist?
    She was also best of pals with Pinochet! Get the picture? Well, there is more...

    She was a steadfast friend to brutal tyrants such as Augusto Pinochet (as already mentioned before), Saddam Hussein and Indonesian dictator General Suharto (“One of our very best and most valuable friends”).

    Had enough? well there is more....

    She played a key role by using her influence to publicly advocate for the 2003 attack on Iraq, an illegitimate war by international law standards (unlike the first Gulf War).

    Had enough? Still more....

    What about her domestic political legacy of rampant inequality and greed, privatisation and social breakdown in GB?

    Therefore, kindly spare me and condolence messages please. Moreover, people praising Thatcher's legacy should show some respect for her victims, which were many....

    Typical Argies- no class, no style and no humility.
    No-one says Maggie was perfect but it is customary to be human and sociable and to at least announce regret in a diplomatic way. All the other stuff will be debated and interpreted for many years to come but all intelligent people will see that she tried to do the right things for Britain and she left an indelible mark like few people in history can claim - some failings but many more successes.

    HG :
    1) If Thatcher hadn't sent British troops to the Falklands , you would still be living ( or perhaps disappeared ) under a military junta .You should have statues to her in every school , not the so called heroes who threw pregnant women out of planes after stealing their kids .
    2 ) What about her domestic political legacy of rampant inequality and greed, privatisation and social breakdown in GB?
    If she was so bad , how come she was re- elected three times with increasing majorities .
    She destroyed class barriers and created social mobility , something Cristina won't because she wants you enslaved ina marxist tyranny .
    3) What is so good about nationalised companies ? They are overstaffed , inefficient monopolies , often as not controlled by unions , which is why Argentina is currently re-nationalising everything in sight .Good luck with that , I hope it's the usual roaring success .

    Aye, it seems even the Pope has but good words to speak of Maggie..and yet our friendly resident Malvos see it otherwise and the “great” Argentine leader is incapable of even the smallest acknowledgement of her passing.

    It seems even the pleasantries of basic diplomacy escape the Argentine Government... I would act surprised if I were.

    “What about her domestic political legacy of rampant inequality and greed, privatisation and social breakdown in GB? ”

    Hmm, i lived through those times and did very well thank you. She ended the power of the Unions, resurrected the British economy and did away with the failed policies of her predecessors...

    oh, sorry, forget that - I forgot: you aren't discussing, your telling us all how WE should think.

    Yes, you are right: she did no good whatsoever and all these nations, leaders and great people are making it all up.

    Mrs T was good and bad. By his own admission he was initially a terrorist. She was steadfast in opposing Aparthied and very active in reforming South Africa. She was active in breaking the overbearing power of the unions and was the scourge of scroungers which means many of these people are glad to see her depart. On the other hand she presided over too much destruction of our industries and public services from which we have never recovered.
    Best of all, she lead us to overcome Argentinean aggression and ensure that our Falkland Islands remain British forever. She was a beacon for Freedom, Democracy and self reliance. The poll tax was a brilliant idea, it would have lead to all the scroungers paying a fair share, pity it failed. I hope they bring it back.
    87 years is a very good innings, especially for such a hard working person.

    Far be it from me to appear to defend Thatcher but she was more instrumental in the release of Mandela than all the protest concerts, student sit-ins and leftist talking shops put together. Given that Mandela thanked her in London I can only assume he took that view also.

    @12 & @18 Helber Galarga

    What do you actually know about Britain in the 70's and 80's? Nothing.

    Successive failed governments (sound familiar) brough the UK to the brink of bankruptcy, and Maggie pulled us back from the edge.

    I grew up in a very poor area of Lancashire to working class people. Thanks to Maggie and her policies, I now own my own house. Each of my siblings also own their own houses. Quite a few 'working' class people I grew up with now own their own businesses as well as their own properties, one of them is a self made millionaire. All because of Maggie's policies.

    She gave poor people the chance to escape poverty and lead a better life for themselves and their children.

    There is an old saying which is very apt. “Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime.”

    Maggie gave everyone, regardless of class, the chance to learn how to fish for themselves. Most socialist politicians will just give people a fish a day to keep them dependent and grateful for the food. Eventually the food runs out, and the poor suffer, and don't know how to look after themselves.

    Argentina's lack of respect and undiplomatic manner will be remembered by countries everywhere. You don't have to like someone to show basic common decency. Common deceny appears to be lacking in Argentina right now.

    A lack of common decency shows Argentina up for what it really is. You started a war that cost over a thousand lives. You cheered the Junta on when they did it, and even now you celebrate the invasion by Junta of a peaceful people.

    An Argentinian expressed gratitude for Thatcher's victory over the generals in the 1982 war, a humiliating defeat that forced them to abandon power a year later. “Thankyou Maggie Thatcher, for catalyzing the return of democracy in Argentina,” wrote Andres Wolberg-Stok, who covered the war for the Buenos Aires Herald as a young reporter 31 years ago, on his Facebook account.

    As for the sinking of the Belgrano, what a bunch of dim bats the Argys are. When at war take out any threat that can do any harm, thats what we did we sank the warship that was on its way to link up with the rest of the Argentine navy that was preparing to attack the our task force. Great order from a great woman. All of Argentine should be rejoicing that as a great leader of an even greater nation she did not order the total destruction of an evil country that his still as evil thirty years on.

    @4 Well, dear Elbow, it seems that you adopt the “populist” stance. As has been pointed out, Mandela was “by definition” a terrorist. Did he not lead a bombing campaign? It must be remembered that the UK owed Pinochet a debt of gratitude. In 1982, Chile's Westinghouse long range radar gave the task force early warning of argie air attacks. There was also the matters of military intelligence gathering, radar surveillance, allowing British aircraft to operate with Chilean colours and facilitating the safe return of British special forces. Wonder how many British lives he saved? The day the radar had to be taken out of service was also the day Britain lost 53 dead. About a fifth of the final total. But then argies wouldn't understand standing by friends, would they? And, from what I read, Allende wasn't so brilliant. Buying his way to power by ruining Chile. What's your problem with Suharto? After a quick read on his history, it seems he was anti-communist. A much-needed “friend” in resistance to Chinese communist imperialism. As for Saddam Hussein, wasn't she amongst those who urged action against him after his attempted genocide amongst the Kurds and his invasion of Kuwait? Could there be a sneaking admiration on your part for Hussein? After all, argieland was also into genocide. And didn't argieland also invade and occupy a small defenceless country? And on much the same pretext.
    @12 You don't seem to represent any MAJORITY. Just a bunch of poor argie losers.

    To: Steve, Yaghan and PeskyII--You guys are right -the usual suspects-the same pigs w/ the same lipstick and fawning statements. Fortunately their people are a lot smarter. Their is major disconnect between the people and their govts. Nobody in world supports UK claims to islands or recognizes that sham election--a real shame and a sham. Thatcher was a demogogue-like most British politicians and the press and nobody in the world was fooled by her con-woman tactics.

    @59 When I was on Isla de Pascua a couple of years ago it was apparent that the people rely heavily on Chile to survive. Whilst they like the idea of independence they are not so foolish as to believe they are capable of it at this time. I was told it was very much a 50/50 split of opinion with the reality being the status quo as the best option. I didn't encounter any anti-Chilean sentiment.

    It is a beautiful and extraordinary place.

    The Malvinistas and the supporters of this hopeless Argentine CFK Government like silly Pesky never fail to disappoint.....their country continues on ist downward economic spiral, with around 30% inflation, currency controls, crazy restrictive trade policies, serious debt problems and so forth and these clowns would have us think life if ever so beautiful in Argentina these days....tell the families of those poor bastards who drowned unneccessarily in La Plata how fantastic Argentina is these days....poorly maintained infrastructure contributed a lot to those deaths....like the poor bastards who died a couple of years back in tthat train crash in Buenos Aires.

    The fact is you fools can't deal with your humiliating defeat in the Falklands War (you silly bastards led by a tinpot dictatorship started it and then whinge when OMG, the Brits quite rightly turn up and turf you out of the Falklands) and it drives you crazy...the Argentine ego just can't cope...its just too much for you arrogant sods to deal with. It's a pity that you genuises couldn't move on and seek to engage with the Falklanders and the British in a more positive manner.....but having constructed a large part of your identity around this National Lie called Las Malvinas (which outside your dreams, will never materialise) that prospect seems unlikely for a long time yet. Still, you can enjoy your football (and Yes, that great example of sportsmanship, the Hand of God goal) because thanks to this government, you face at least a few more years of economic misery and national humiliation as outsiders think about how better Argentina could be if it had decent and honest governance.

    @73 Toby,
    They arrived on boats like all Polynesians in the pacific did. They are as, like the Kelpers, the first settlers on their islands (native is an acceptable definition). I don't get to decide if they take their claim to La Haya, they do. If they do and there is a vote, that is fine by me. Like I say, they would lose the vote. Even if they won I would accept it as a their right, I would not cry like an Argie.

    Funny that you should have brought Rapa Nui on to the thread. In Rapa Nui we achieved Demented-Argie-Nirvana, we took control of a British administered island (peacefully).

    The crazy thing is you have neighbour like Chile who in the last quarter century has been going along in leaps and bounds economically leaving Argentina in the dust. Has your nation learnt nothing.....your backward economic policies and poor and corrupt governance has led your nation to this situation.

    @74 Elaine,
    Your assessment is very accurate.
    On the island you hear some legitimate complaints and some grumbles. I sympathize with many of their complaints. They are a very small population concerned about the preservation of their culture. The islands suffered horribly after the arrival of European boats. The population was decimated by disease and many were taken off as slaves to work in Peru. When Chile took control of the island, there were about 100 Rapa left. It is very sad. They have a special place in the heart of Chileans and they receive many benefits that “Continentales” don’t get. They will never wish the vulnerability that independence would bring such a tiny population.
    PS: sorry, but I am going to feed this little troll, I pity his hunger for attention...

    @Toby
    “ like the Kelpers, the first settlers on their islands” Not according to the UN - so who are the natives?

    We will take over Malvinas peacefully as well, your point is....
    My point is that you won't. The Falklands would choose free association with a good country like Chile before being Argie. Get over it, stop crying and stop envying that we achieved 4000km away you can't achieve 400kms away.

    It can be expected that a great many Argentines will have a negative response to the Death of Margaret Thatcher. Already we here comments coming from them like the sinking of the Belgrano. Well maybe you need a little reminder that none of those Argentines in 1982 need to loose their lives or cause the death of British people. Fact is your stupid Leader at the time caused everyone of those deaths by using an act of Aggression against Great Britain and the people of the Falkland islands. Thanks to the strength and determination of Margaret Thatcher stopped a dictator and actually gave Argentina their Democracy. Pity they never capitalised on it owe would not be heading in the same direction again. Argentina's Current Leader CFK has all the hall marks of an out and out dictator and it is a great pity no one since Margaret Thatcher has had the forethought to be stronger politically towards rising aggression coming out of Argentina. She was no doubt one of the finest leaders of all time who by putting down a ruthless dictator in 1982 made the rest of the world realise that you can fight for that freedom to choose by democracy. R.I.P Lady Thatcher your part in our History will stay with us forever.

    “”“Never ceases to amaze me how the RGs blame Maggie for the sinking of the Belgrano........have they forgotten that they started the war,”“”

    according ot other threads: yes, they have.

    Our native Mavlos have told us that Maggie STARTED the war, on purpose, as the USA and UK were the paymasters of the Junta and it was therefore the UK/USA that were responsible for 30,000 disappeared and NOT Argentines in the Junta or their Argentine supporters.

    Similarly the sinking of the Belgrano was, and i quote “Attempted Genocide”... which, the only way I can workout, is if the entire population of Argentina was on-board her at the time.

    Essentially they live in a world of total self-delusion where Argentina is never to blame, its always somebody elses fault and every nation around them has “stolen their land” at some point or another.

    The question one has to ask oneself is if these “Argentines” are truly representative of their Nation, or are just the mad fringe of CFKs propaganda campaign...indoctrinated from school all the way into government.

    The few leaders who addressed the former prime minister condemned the sinking of the Belgrano and neoliberal policies, “cold” and “unpleasant”, the verdict of the street - The death of Margaret Thatcher, Prime Minister of Great Britain during the Falklands War, had yesterday a disparate impact in Argentina, with good press coverage, but with almost no reactions in political leadership. In fact, the government of Cristina Kirchner did not comment on the issue.
    That silence was broken only by Ernesto Alonso, president of the National Argentine Falklands Veterans, who told ANSA that Thatcher “contributed nothing to world peace.”
    The few leaders who referred to Thatcher's death, most of the opposition, condemned the ruling conservative figure, who blamed the deaths of 323 Argentine combatants in the sinking of the General Belgrano on 2 May 1982, one month after the beginning of the war....'

    12 Helber Galarga (#) “This is about the MAJORITY. Have you ever heard about them??? You selfish pig.”

    Well HG, maybe its time to give you a small lesson in both the English language and democracy.

    Majority - the number by which the votes cast for the winning party exceed those for its nearest rival.

    This is a principle of government that is know in civillised countries as a DEMOCRACY, and yholds elections/ballots/referendums etc that are run on this basis. If you want to know how and opne, honest fair ballot is carried out just as the Gov of the Falkland Islands, I'm sure they would be happy to explain.

    In the UK we hold just such democractic elections to elect a government to serve for no longer than a period of 5 years.

    Well Baroness Thatcher served as Prime Minister for 11 years have stood for parliament in her own right as an MP, and as leader of her party and therefore Prime Minister in THREE elections, each of which she WON with an INCREASED MAJORITY (there we have it, the explanation) on every occasions.

    She was elected 3 times by the people of this country with a MANDATE (we will hold that lesson in democracy at another time) to carry out her policies.

    When the country felt that she was no longer in tune with them, and her policies at the end of 11 years no longer resonated with them, she was unelected by her party. This is another aspect of a mature democracy that you may wish explore and understand before spouting off complete bollocks about UK governance. When Argentina finally becomes a mature honest democracy, I will happily listen to your views and ideas, however that may be a long way off.

    I mean the likes of stevie-knows-everything ( even if he was only just born when Thatcher was in power and has never been to the UK, let alone lived here as worker during those times) and idiots like Helger who rant that the “MAJORITY” hated her.. yet forget those same people elected her 3 times to power... so, you know, without wanting to point out the bleedin' obvious but... the majority clearly supported her.

    I mean lets be serious here: we're talking about people whose only knowledge of Thatcher comes from reading the Argentine press, they didnt live in Britain, they didnt work in Britain, they didnt vote, they didnt have to go through the “winter of discontent”, or employee bolshy staff operating under Union Largesse... and so on and so forth.

    they have zero experience other than indoctrination via the press & web... and anybody listens to them? Seriously?

    Utterly clueless they are, and simply repeating other people's rhetoric with no understanding behind it.

    -

    Well, thats a result of a piss-poor education system that concentrates on propaganda over real history - they dont understand how such International systems work - just as they dont understand the difference between UN resolutions that can be enforced and those that are nothing more than polite suggestions.

    Similarly they dont understand that when they start a war the opposition might kill some of them - they think thats a war crime; but leaving 10s of thousands of unmarked landmines all over civilian land is “O.K.”.

    (As is throwing nuns out of aeroplanes and then blaming it on the US/UK because they were secretly in charge of the Junta!)

    Its a measure of the people ateotd.ll watch, remember and stoe away for future times when you can, once again, as usual, say “Well we did warn you but you didnt listen”.

    At which point they will have a “latin moment” and then start finding somebody else to pin the blame on. :-)

    If she doesn't run away to Caracas with a couple of $b of the people's money, she'll dragged thru the streets by her heels.

    As I have said over and over again, not a smart people...

    News media have at last confirmed the urban legend in which a person somewhere south of the border buys a lapdog, only to discover later that it is a large rodent. A retired man from Catamarca, Argentina, went to a market in Buenos Aires, and purchased what he believed to be two toy poodles, only to discover after getting home that they were ferrets, reports the Daily Mail.

    The ferrets had been given steroids to make them appear larger and were groomed to look like fluffy white toy poodles. The small poodles usually sell for around $1000, and the man paid $150 for each of the large ferrets. He was not the only dog buyer duped however. Local news in Buenos Aires discovered a woman had been sold a ferret passed off as a chihuahua as well.

Calls of genocide for the woman (that really must make the machismo sting, eh?) who, as a consequence of liberating the Falklands (which in turn was a temporary success in keeping themselves in power by earning the support of cowers like you), put an end to your dirty war with casualties estimated in the 10ths of thousands (a political genocide using some of your own words as a limp wristed apologist of the Junta that you claim to oppose).

    How many songs, Raul have you posted in rueful anger over the deaths that YOUR Junta caused, both in Argentina proper and the Falklands? Not a ditty that I've seen here. How many songs showing anger over your people's own cowardice in not confronting the Junta -- until it disappointed you and Thatcher humiliated your national pride by finishing a fight YOUR Junta started and you praised in the street? Not a note. But Maggie, the Great Privatizer and Milk Thief -- and in her eye the broad who castrated your manhood? Five verses on multiple threads.

    Oh the tired metanarratives you read. Everything is the fault of El Norte. The big Yanqui and British devils (one wonders if the Ruskies are blameless). Nothing is your fault unless it is a victory. If the Junta held the islands AR would have gladly held onto the Junta and its dirty war. Your protest culture gladly put itself in the service of the government once it gave you what your wanted: your own colony to oppress. But that didn't happen. The Junta failed you, and only then did your protest culture collect itself from mothers of little impact it “spontaneously” became the same people who voted the Junta a renewed term with the cheers they shouted weeks earlier. And why was that? Revolutions, both velvet and pointy, have been won with less favorable little-p people to Big-P people ratios than you had. You know full well that its because Thatcher and the British challenged your Junta and faced down an army that was calibrated to fight civilians (yeah, that's brave), this time holding guns to the heads of a new block of civilians AND with the warm approval and blessing of the rank-n-file Argentines who grew up on the same cynical narratives you continue to spout who also knew exactly what was in store for the, having experienced it themselves.

    Brits, having a diverse and vibrant and above all, loudly and proudly independent, protest culture can do what they want. AR however should at the very least question how Germany would have looked like if they were to have cheered Churchil's death. I can't speak for Britain but if I could I would say “your welcome”.

    Did I really hear some twat compare Maggie with CFK?

    First of all, Maggie restored some pride to the UK by confronting left wing socialist extremists who were bringing the country down to it's knees much like what the Bolivarians are doing in S.A.

    She re-energized the economy by privatizing lame duck nationalized industries making them more efficient & profitable

    She stood up to the miners, power workers, engineering unions to name a few who were blackmailing the country with their excessive wage demands

    She helped hundreds of thousands out of poverty & enabled them to buy their own homes for the first time in their lives

    She ended the culture of state dependancy making people stand on their own two feet & taking responsibility for themselves

    She was instrumental in bringing down the iron curtain by opening up communication lines with Gorbachev

    She was instrumental in ending apartheid by opening up communication lines with De Klerk & Botha

    And last but not least she had the ' pelotas' to stand up to the military junta who invaded a peaceful island nation & not only did she win the war but it also helped to bring down a brutal dictatorship for which the RGs should be forever thankful

    Now then, what did CFK do?.......................hmmmmm..............................
    Oh yeah, she increased inflation to around 30% per year, she introduced import controls creating shortages in manufacturing, she introduced dollar controls creating a massive parallel market, she created state capitalism by taking over the central bank, pension funds & YPF, she's picked fights with the U.S., U.K, E.U., U.N., I.M.F., F.I., Scioli, Macri, Moyano & even the pope, she hid behind the Campora in times of national crisis like the Once train crash & the La Plata floods

    And last but not least, she whined about the Falklands incessantly until everyone got tired of her including B.K.Moon & the Pope.........absolutely NO COMPARISON!!!

    The military junta of Argentina in 1982 ordered the invasion of the Falkland Islands and from the euphoria of the crowd assembled in front of the Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires this was supported by the majority of the Argentine population when it was announced. Thus the conflict, whatever the consequences, was provoked and supported by the population of Argentina.
    The principal consequence was that Britain did not just “roll over” and allow Argentina to have its illegal way - we responded, led by Mrs Margaret Thatcher, in defence of our fellow citizens whose land had been illegally taken from them by foreign elements.
    The conflict was not nice - many young men lost their lives - but the BLAME LIES WITH ARGENTINA. The sinking of the General Belgrano was NOT a war crime - the captain of the vessel, Captrain Bonzo acknowledged on several occasions that it was an Act of War and he was supported by an Admiral of the Argentine Navy Operations.
    So what's all the evil intent of the Argentine trolls with the death of Baroness Thatcher - she was not responsible for the deaths of so many young argentinos, Argentine was entirely to blame.
    And I congratulate our new Holy Father on his message to Britain in connection with the death our beloved Baronness Thatcher. ¡Viva el Papa!

    Yes, its now official: If Argentina starts a war against you by invanding a peaceful community you are NOT allowed to fight back, otherwise they will class it as a war crime.

    Even better they now state that fighting back is against “the peaceful resolution of conflicts”.

    Erm remind me - who started the war by invading the Falklands?

    It is, in one sense, true that the common man in Argentina should be thankful that the response by Prime Minister Thatcher to the invasion by the junta led to the junta's downfall.

    But we should not ask too much by way of eulogy from the Argentine leadership or its people.
    The leadership needed their bete noir - THE IRON LADY.
    After losing the war and now with her passing, the propaganda campaign against the Falklands becomes more distantly difficult. History books are less potent than 'the living personification of that great evil'.
    And an Argentine people who suffer daily Malvenas-indoctrination cannot be wholely blamed when they repeat their teaching.

    I am personally guilty of relief at the passing of Hugo and, though I bad-mouthed him during life, I allowed him to pass with the dignity of my LACK of comment.
    And I certainly did not expect the (defeated) German nation to send tributes to Churchill the warrior on his death.

    Nations can play politics with the passing of (great) leaders, but sometimes the most we should expect and hope for is a respectful silence.

    @184.... ”And I certainly did not expect the (defeated) German nation to send tributes to Churchill the warrior on his death.“

    I WOULD actually expect it. The Germans went through ”de-nazification“: they were slapped in the face with their own actions and complicity and they have shown true remorse and don't necessarily just blame WW2 on the Nazis and accept that they all cheered them on as a majority and want to make sure that it won't happen again. The Argentines however have been petulant through and through. Even with the one thing I would support the Kirchner's for (token revocation amnesty in a country awash with a network of ”Little Eichmanns”) AR never when through “de-Juntafication” and expanding the Junta's dirty war to the FI was the ONE thing they universally supported at the time save for a small minority of “traitors.” To this day they mint coins to them and hand out medals for the Dirty War's Hail Mary pass as a good thing deliberately ignoring the broader implications of an alternative history where the Junta prevailed over the FI (AND Argentina).

    The Germans with the exceptions of the tiniest sliver of neofascists despise the Nazis. W.R.T. Churchill, they nodded with quiet respect and dare I say grudging gratitude. However, The Argentines have an unhealthy love-hate thing for Junta. Oh yes, the Dirty War as bad and “everyone” opposed it until Apr 2, 1982 at which point they were forever grateful for brief moment of national pride they gave them -- when they gave them a colony that could be treated the same way the Junta treated them (Yes, that will show those British “Pirats”). And that's pretty sick. But then “That Woman” (dare I say “That Hag”?) showed them up. And that just couldn't stand. Nor can it be allowed to stand years after the Junta fell.

    Tramp the dirt down. And give us our colony “back.”

    Thatcher the little old 87 year old woman with Alzheimer's is dead. But thatcher the symbol lives on:

    1. She symbolises the lack of generosity and kindheartedness of a certain brand of entrepreneurial Protestantism.

    2. She symbolises cheap and dangerous patriotism at the rotting end of empire.

    3. She symbolises the victory of ill gotten gain over profits from hard sustained labour.

    4. She symbolises the destruction, by fair means and foul (but mainly foul) of workers rights to defend themselves in the workplace.

    5. She symbolises the spread, like a virus, of the destructive ideology of the Chicago school through all the establishment's forums from Davos to G8.

    6. She symbolises the military industrial complex and Mutually Assured Destruction, with Reagan taking us to the brink of war with a first strike policy she supported.

    7. She symbolises the loss of Britain's position as a leading industrial power.

    8. She symbolises the way British people became defenseless against exploitation, with millions of people in the British living increasingly off shitty low paid part time jobs.

    9. She symbolises the victory of identity politics over social justice. A woman presiding over the impoverishment and oppression of a whole nation.

    10. She symbolises the loss of national sovereignty to the United States, with US listening stations and military bases dotting the archipelago.

    11. She symbolises the cultivation of the council house buyers, the I am alright jack fuck you brand of Britishness and the end of affordable council housing.

    12. For Thatcher there was no such thing as society because she was busy her best to destroy it. Especially in the North of England.

    13. Thatcher symbolises the end of One Nation Tory-ism and the beginning of an even more horribly divided set of islands.

    14. Thatcher symbolises the victory of the watery dark selfish mean spirit of many British people over their tolerant generous kind better selves.

    @198 and anyone else who likes to bring up the subject of Milk Snatcher ... I hate milk.

    Like me, there were tens of thousands of other kids at infants and junior school in the UK who disliked the milk given out (including my brother and sisters). Maggie did us a big favour by getting rid of it, but I am being selfish.
    However, I preferred the custard or the ice cream (which I think is a better way of getting the milk), which I got for lunch everyday and there was plenty more for second portions! Spotted Dick was my favourite pudding. That needed lots of custard with it because it could be a tad dry and difficult to swallow!!! So was the Jam Roly Poly. Yum yum.

    ... and talk about swallowing ...

    The invitation and guest list has been announced for Baroness Thatcher's funeral. However, there was another list announced of those who will definitely not be invited ... embarrassingly there was only ONE name on it .. and it was of the Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. Oh dear. Not very nice to be singled out in a negative way especially when the world's attention is focused on the events in London. Oh to be reminded again, of the defeat of Argentina by a grocer's daughter from Grantham.

    The HUMILIATION. Cristina must be hopping mad, screaming, crying and yelling at everyone, and what makes it worse for her is that she cannot say anything derogatory about Maggie especially after the recent episode when the Argentine Foreign Minister Hector Timerman summoned the Uruguayan ambassador in Buenos Aires, Guillermo Pomi, to protest about the comments of the Uruguayan President Mujica when he called Nestor Kirchner Boss-Eyed (as well as calling Cristina an “old hag”).

    Mr Timerman said “It is unacceptable that derogatory comments that offend the memory... of a deceased person, who cannot defend himself”.

    So, according to my logic that means we won't be hearing anything nasty from the Argentinian people or Argentine government about our Maggie.

    “”“And of course she was immortalized when she took the free milk away from poor children as Thatcher the Milk Snatcher.

    That last should be her political epitaph.”“”“

    It is interesting to note when these ”Intelligent“ Malvos halt their google-research into their spontaneous claims and where they don't.

    F.ex: Thatcher was strongly against the removal of free-milk in schools.

    Now, as this fact is exceptionally easy to uncover, one has to ask oneself a few questions as to whether these Malvos are simply stupid, or deliberately misrepresenting history?

    We know that they commonly re-write history to suit themselves, so there is precedent, however stupidity does seem to be close second.

    Thatchers comment to her BOSS at the time?

    ”“”Mrs Thatcher said: “I think that the complete withdrawal of free milk for our school children would be too drastic a step and would arouse more widespread public antagonism than the saving justifies.”“”“

    And yet we see out little malvos misrepresenting history to claim she led the abolition of this national freebie...indeed suggesting it be on her epitaph.

    It would, quite clearly, be far more suited on the Malvos epitaphs as an example of p-poor research and deliberate misrepresentation... but since when did historical fact and simple research stop a Mavlotroll from claiming something otherwise as ”fact”.

    It is, however, not quite as amusing as the representatives of a nation heading toward closer & Closer ties with rogue states such as Iran, lecturing others on who they had close ties with.

    It seems that whilst they can lecture others, they dont seem capable of learning from others... or even seeing the inherent irony.

    Don't know if it was that good, but it was definately the best manifesto put to the country in the last 30 years. Thanks to our undemocratic electoral system and the criminal treachery of the Labour right who stood against the party with the Liberals, Thatcher won a massive landslide in 1983 - even though her share of the vote went DOWN, despite the Falklands boost. Its a complete myth that Britain decisively rejected socialism or any possible alternative to Thatcherism that year - one day real Labour politics, or, if you like, a British version of Kirchnerism, will have to come back to save us from neoliberalism and the corrupt failing banks

    210 : From wiki :

    The 1983 United Kingdom general election was held on 9 June 1983. It gave the Conservative Party under Margaret Thatcher the most decisive election victory since that of Labour in 1945.
    The opposition vote split almost evenly between the SDP/Liberal Alliance and Labour. With its worst performance since 1918, the Labour vote fell by over 3 million from 1979 and this accounted for both a national swing of almost 4% towards the Conservatives and their larger parliamentary majority of 144, even though the Conservatives' total vote fell by almost 700,000.

    CFK to make a 3 hour speech claiming the political credit for the changing of the bulb and deriding the old one as being British made .
    After 5 years of stumbling about in the dark , it's realised that someone
    called Bonafini has stolen the lightbulb , the fittings , the cabling , in fact the entire building .
    So the answer is none , because despite all the words and promises , nothing ever gets done under Cristina .

    I wish to pose a question, and I expect honest answers:
    How can you admire a politician whose actions cause the unemployment and poverty rates in her own to country to increase? How can you admire a politician who lies in the face of its own people?. That promotes economic unevenness and causes industrial production to decrease? One that bans unions and homosexuals? That promotes greed and selfishness?

    We might answer the question if it was an honest and factual question !

    Oh, come on!

    TMBOA hasn't banned unions, yet, and as for homosexuals she can't even spell it.

    “I expect honest answers” - a 'demand' by any other name!

    Yaghan

    You might start by not being antagonistic in your posts, and asking politely.

    I don't know who you are talking about here. Hitler? Galtieri, CFK??

    Are you suggesting a politician who is NOT a Fascist??

    “How can you admire a politician whose actions cause the unemployment and poverty rates in her own to country to increase? How can you admire a politician who lies in the face of its own people?. That promotes economic unevenness and causes industrial production to decrease? ”

    Frankly, that sounds like it fits Chavez and CFK to a tee !!
    -lying to the workers
    -lying to the taxpayers
    -lying to creditors
    -lying to the Electorate
    -profiteering
    -destroying the economy

    Yup - that's CFK!!

    WHO banned Unions????

    Who banned Homosexuals???

    Do you have anything to support all your 'charges'??

    ANYTHING?

    No, I thought not.

    Too bad for you bitter Propagandists and Trolls that Prime Minister Thatcher had the resolve to thrash your Argentinean Armed Forces for invading an unarmed civilian community - beaten by a woman!!

    Stings doesn't it??

    #234 To expect is to look forward to, to regard as likely to happen. Hardly any demands but hopes! This is stated a formal polite request, I am afraid. But let us leave that for your analyst to decide.
    I understand questions as such. On the contrary, you consider them to be charges. Quite a difference, isn't it?
    Quite glad you describe Chavez's and CFks actions as fitting within the scheme, since what I describe are the past actions of your beloved former Prime Minister during her rise to power. So, how come the same actions are despicable only when arising from South American leaders? (I must note that, with Hitler's sole exception, all those mentioned were exactly that ).
    One last mistake (of the many you will surely make in the near future) which requires clarification: the Argentinean Land forces surrendered to Major General Sir John Jeremy Moore, as far as I know. Politicians, even those that wear uniforms, (e.g. Galtieri) are seldom present in battlefields.

    Again, Please verify:

    - Lied to the people
    - banned Unions
    - banned homosexuality
    I ask you again, to show sources to back up those 'accusations' of evil-doing on the part of Thatcher.
    I bet you can't.

    Britain's economy came out stronger after Thatcher. Traditional industries that were no longer viable or competitive, were no longer supported by the Government.

    Can you tell me why?
