    Re: Breaking News Margaret Thatcher Dead.

    Funnily enough, I heard that she'd only been in hell for a day and had already shut down 4 furnaces.

    All joking aside, it's disgraceful the way some have celebrated her death. I can understand the grievances that some folk who are of an older generation have against her actions when in power, these folk wouldn't stoop so low as to hold parties or celebrations because she's dead - those are the actions of the ignorant and extreme.

    R.I.P to a mother and human being.

    Re: Breaking News Margaret Thatcher Dead.

    I wasn't referring to your post and didn't take offence

    I was referring to the fact that people here gathered like common criminals to celebrate the death of an old woman - most of whom don't know anything about or never experienced the difficulties faced in the wake of some of her policies.

    People have their right to express their opinions either way though I think some of the examples in the newspapers recently have been really disrespectful.

    Whatever she may have done, I still don't think it's appropriate for people to be gathering in crowds and teaching young children who have no idea who Margaret Thatcher is that it is acceptable to celebrate the death of an old woman.

    There's a difference between a mass murderer such as Bin Laden or Hitler and someone who made crappy political choices as Thatcher did.

    Your posts have been very respectful, but this one was veering off message.

    Thanks and I agree to an extent - her choices must have been difficult, some of which did benefit the country, but from the point of view of a lot of folk up here, some of those choices she made were crappy.

    The entry of this song into the Top 10 was again just another sign of disrespect.

    So much of the bluster and venom turned out to be hot air on the day and very little disruption was caused.
    One Police officer on the day said it was a blessing that it was raining as that kept all the troublemakers away!

    Just steady on before you start hurling insults about. I meant that I'd stated two obvious things in my original post which you'd quoted from. Your duplicate post was obviously just a glitch.

    Yes , it was just a glitch so why demean by saying stating the obvious is inexcusable ?
    As for obvious just what do you mean by the lower orders , and just how am i supposed to take the comment about the Celtic fringe ?

    I have always read your posts and though i do not agree with many of them i do like the way you usually make a point , though polarising certain elements of our society by saying what are quite insulting comments does you a disservice .

    You still don't get it. I was saying that it was inexcusable of me to state the obvious twice in my post. Irony!

    What do I mean by the lower orders? I mean the working classes essentially. The Celtic fringe means the parts of the UK other than England and is a term mentioned here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celtic_nations

    My point was that it was generally the working classes, the Scots and the Welsh who opposed The Lady. Her support came mostly from elsewhere.

    How are you supposed to take that? You're the doctor. A suppository maybe?

    Re: Breaking News Margaret Thatcher Dead.

    The irony for many anti Thatcherites is the fact that she led her Conservative Party to victory at three consecutive general elections with sufficient votes from the "lower orders," "working classes," Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Scilly Isles to ensure that she remains a controversial politician in death as she once was when prime minister.

    I rather suspect that there are very many Yorkshire people who voted for the Conservative Party during the eighties who, label themselves members of the "working classes" although, my experience of Yorkshire people would suggest that they would never label themselves members of the "lower orders."

    What's good for the goose is, good for the gander understanding that the venomous insults that have been exchanged between the pro and, anti Thatcher factions suggests that freedom of expression remains a fundamental right for all citizens of the United Kingdom.

    Bollocks , i suggest you read again your post you stated that the working class were the Scots and the Welsh and "The Lady`s"
    support generally came from elsewhere , but hey please do carry on backtracking , also you were the one to try and be clever with your use of the word suppository , what`s up don`t like it when you are called out on such bigoted views ?

    Well ,well , To whom would i give a state funeral , such occasions are normally reserved for the reigning Monarch , why put you in block
    are you trying to make some sort of an asinine point ?
    Guess what you failed , again , but then with your posting style you must be used to that by now .

    Please don`t post that the comment was not meant for me , such a ludicrous post deserves an answer , no ?

    I assume in the UK, as with many other nations, that a sitting or former Head of State always gets a state funeral.

    Re: Breaking News Margaret Thatcher Dead.

    Unloadonme will tell us that Thatcher got a quasi-state funeral.

    It was still a very expensive funeral but I assume some of that cost was to pay the police to stop the ratbags and grudge-holders from interrupting it.

    Are you confusing Head of State with Head of Government? The Queen, as Head of State, will undoubtedly be given a state funeral when the time comes. Except in the unlikely event of an abdication, there is never a living former Head of State in the UK.

    The Prime Minister is Head of Government and there are generally several former Prime Ministers alive. Since the death of The Lady, there are three. Most Prime Minsters are not given either a state or a ceremonial funeral. There were no such funerals between Churchill's in 1965 and The Lady's last week.

    Head of State - yes (The Monarch) Head of Government - no.

    Winston Churchill was the one exception for as prime minister he united a nation to wage war against a common enemy.

    The Lady was given a ceremonial funeral which was one step down from a state funeral. There was no lying in state and the gun carriage was pulled by horses rather than naval ratings.

    Security would have been a large part of the cost, yes. Happily, demonstrators were in a minority on the day and they didn't pose much of a security threat.

    Actually, there are two exceptions. The First Duke of Wellington was given a state funeral in 1852, having served as Prime Minister twice. Arguably, of course, the funeral was in recognition of his military rather than political achievements.

    Yep , you are correct , though the late Queen-Mother who was a wonderful woman , especially her and the late Kings conduct during
    the 2nd world war where they refused to be evacuated to Canada and choose to stay in Buck-House .

    She famously said after the palace was bombed that "she could look the east-end in the face again" , yet this grand old lady had the exact same funeral as Thatcher , apart from her grandchildren standing en-garde at either side of her coffin as she lay in State .
    The crowds who stood for many hours to pass her coffin and pay their respects were a testimony to this .

    Yet Cameron used 10million of the taxpayers money to fund "The Lady`s" , while at the same time cutting the benefits of many disabled people .
    Basically it was a party political broadcast on behalf of this present government , though i am happy to report that this has turned round and bitten him right in the arse .

    What people have to remember is she WAS NOT a Head of State , we have a constitutional monarchy , she was our Head of Government , something a lot of Brits either forget or choose to forget , "yes you know i am referring to you" .

    At the end of the day i do remember that at the end she was an 87yr old woman with dementia so unlike others i did not dance a jig when she passed into "Sainthood" , however she tore this country apart , whole communities were destroyed and to this day that devastation is still remembered .

    Sorry -d- for the rant , hopefully i answered your question during it..... .

    My apologies while i was typing you had several other reply`s , unnloadonme is bang on apart from Winston , in living memory she has been the only Prime-Minister to be accorded such Honours .

    Grimshaws statement is beyond contempt , i suggest he lives here before branding people who are exercising their legal right to protest as "ratbags" .

    Sorry, yes, Head of Government is what I meant.

    However, I assumed that England would give former PMs a state funeral - apparently I was mistaken.

    You're correct, to correct me also, noting that Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington was an Irishman, Dublin born into an aristocratic family whose political claim to fame, despite being an arch conservative and, Anglican was in his persuading both Parliament and, The King that the Catholic Emancipation Bill should be legislated into law. He also outplayed Bonaparte with a little help from overnight heavy rain preventing the French from moving their artillery into position at Waterloo.

    Thanks, for the correction.

    So he's the laissez-faire politician responsible for permitting those Catholic cults to practice their damaging superstition, idolatry, propaganda and mind-control on each other?

    From discipline. Too many were sent as convicts to my country when it was still in a wild, uncivilised state and they bred like rabbits (as they're taught to do) so much so that they comprised a quarter of the population and their constant complaining has got them into parliament where they have subverted the nation's funding to pay for TWO education systems to appease them.

    Arthur Wellesley grew up in Dublin and was very much aware of the need to rescind many of the restrictions that had been placed on Catholics from the time of The Reformation, not just in Ireland also in the rest of the United Kingdom. His shrewd political sense was well respected by his opponents and fellow conservatives alike as a social reformer despite also being an arch conservative - a rather bizarre combination for any politician who had made his reputation as a soldier and victorious general and this probably accounts for his being granted a funeral with full military honours.

    I recall you informing us when you first appeared here that you are a British migrant to Australia - surely not as a convict?

    Australia was originally populated by large numbers of English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish convicts.

    I am ignoring your other comments.

    No. My people arrived 15 years after England stopped shipping its refuse here. We helped turn this semi-arid island into a nation.

    I must say that the Irish male convicts I mentioned earlier were the most active in miscegenating native women which has spawned lots of free money—

    Umm - the Ceremonial funeral is a grand affair and an exception to the rule for former prime ministers.
    Many former prime ministers since Churchill have died and were not given the big Ceremonial funeral.

    In fact - it looks like she's the only non-royal to have received one, ever.

    Given how divisive a character she was, I can understand the controversy.

    My oh my... what a thread...


    Can we consider changing the topic... every time I read "Breaking News Margaret Thatcher Dead."

    I think that isnt Breaking... that shit is broken....

    I dunno what to think about her. I admire anyone who has the where with all to be born to a green grocer and grow up to lead HER country. I am still embarrassed that a country with 50% women that preaches equality has never had a female leader. But we are trying.

    The Palace was bombed. But all the pictures of her visiting the bombed-out East End seemed to have been taken on the same day— or she was wearing the same dress.:0
