Maggie is dead. Now I didn’t much like Maggie when she was Prime Minister. She did and said things that, at the time seem to suggest she was completely uncaring about people. All she wanted was for the machine, that is the state, to work. The fact that millions lost their jobs and that manufacturing, mining and heavy industry appeared to vanish overnight while she was prime minister didn’t seem to bother her. This was made worse by the rise of the get rich quick yuppie class who made money and spent it just as fast on wine, fast cars and more wine. The poor ex workers meanwhile spent their time in dole queues and hanging about on street corners, when they weren’t out on strike that is. True there are two sides to every story and to some Maggie’s greatest achievement was curbing the power of the unions and her transferring how Europe and on the world saw the UK.
Whatever people feel about her and many are aggressively nasty on twitter and other web sites she is dead and like Hitler and Stalin is beyond any harm.
Let history decide as it will.
