Most of the people celebrating her death are students who were just kids or weren't even born when she was the prime minister. Seems pretty ******* retarded to me.

Maybe, but her and her cabinet's actions have an impact upon everybody in the United Kingdom even after she is dead. She changed the country a ******** , so I think it is fairly retarded to say that she has not had an effect on their lives.

Can I ask whether you actually lived under her? No offense meant if you did but I'm getting really annoyed by these people who were born after she left power or were too young to remember her acting as if she was anything more than a symbol of conservatism to them or have been brought up to hate her because their parents did.
#23 to #22 - restfullwicked ONLINE (04/09/2013) [-]
no, im just well educated enough to know what she was like. My grandfather was able to buy his council house because of a law she passed and even he hated her. im not saying she did only bad things. im saying that she ruined a lot of peoples lives. my grandparents were welsh and i grew up knowing a lot of people that were made jobless and became unable to pay for water and power because of her. i have spent the last five years of my life trying fighting against everything people like her stand for.
i didnt live under her rule, and i know enough to be incredibly thankful for it and intend to do everything in my power to make sure my current arsehole of a prime minister dosnt do the exact same things.
#26 to #23 - Rascal (04/09/2013) [-]
Fair enough, as long as it's an educated opinion. I live in the republic of Ireland and there's a lot of knee jerk anger towards her here. Personally I think she filled a necessary role in the history of Britain: a lot of the country's industrial set up (particularly the mines) was heavily outdated and was quickly reaching the end of its economic viability and what Thatcher did would have to come one way or the other at some point/ Should she have done it more gently? Of course, but I think the nature of the unions in Britain at that time meant that gentle change might have been just as fiercely resisted as the larger ones she brought in. It says a lot about Britain int he 80's that she was able to win three elections.
#30 to #26 - restfullwicked ONLINE (04/09/2013) [-]
Well there is some evidence that there was foul play in last election since by that point even the tories hated her, but im not here to make claims of this or that.
She somehow managed to cause 2 recessions. we were in a recession and she caused another one.
One of the main reasons i hate the bitch is that alot of the problems with our government today are because of her. like the whole expenses issue was because she couldnt get them to increase the amount Mps got payed so she told them to use expenses like an extension of their payment. she even set up the offshore payments scam to allow tories to pay less tax, something that david cameron himself pays into yet for some reason seems to think he has the right to tell other people not to do it.
I agree she was in a bad position since she was the first female Pm, but she ****** it up by filling her party with posh boys so she could feel powerful.
i just think she was a awful human being and the fact that she is getting a state funeral is a ******* abuse of money by or glorious torie overlords.
#39 to #30 - Rascal (04/09/2013) [-]
I agree about the state funeral. I don't get why any politician should be given one; they're too divisive figures to merit that kind of an honour (exceptions being those like Churchill who were being honoured in specific circumstances). Such a waste of money and in this recession too.
#42 to #39 - restfullwicked ONLINE (04/09/2013) [-]
because we have a conservative government and (at the risk of sounding like a liberal prick) because of her they were all allowed to line their pockets. its all about power and sadly i fear that the answer is probably simply "because they can"
User avatar #16 to #2 - blasthardcheese (04/09/2013) [-]
And she's hated by Northern Irish people. She pissed off the unionists by signing the Anglo-Irish Agreement which gave the Irish government an advisory role in Northern Irish politics. She pissed of nationalists by not negotiating with the hunger strikers which would have saved them.

Thatcher is hated by many people in Scotland largely because the changes she introduced to britain's industrial centres (closing coal mines and manufacturing industries) affected Scotland and the north of England even more so than the rest of Britain. She also introduced the pole tac in Scotland, where she had no seats, before implementing it for the rest of Britain.

Margaret Thatcher, 1st and only female Prime Minister, died recently. A lot of controversy about her period in office
#35 to #28 - elburcho (04/09/2013) [-]
the closest thing Britain has ever had to a Hitler, Mussolini, Franco or other hate figure, died yesterday. The poorer majority of the country are celebrating the death of someone who's leadership widened the divide between rich and poor in Britain and the upper-middle class and above are butthurt over the 'disrespect' being show to the odious creature.

Well a lot of it stems from how she treated the closure of certain industries that Britain had been relying on but which were becoming untenable. Instead of phasing out or treating the situation with compassion, she basically decided that all the Coal mines needed to be shut in as short a time as possible. If you google the miner's strikes you'll be able to learn more, but basically she eventually made several hundred thousand people unemployed almost over night. In many cases, whole towns were put out of work and have never recovered. This is also where the supposed 'benefits culture' that our politicians now bleat on about stems from.

She also privatised the **** out of everything she could. Our railways, communications etc. Not necessarily an despicable act on the surface but if you ever try to get a train when it is snowing, you can blame her for the fact that the railway companies don't shell out for enough the equipment to deal with it.

I could go on for days about how badly she has affected the country for most people, but I am running out of characters and there is enough on the net if you're interested.

This saddens me. Sure; Thatcher may have done things to upset a vast number of people... but she had to do it in order for Britain to progress as a whole.
At least she had the balls to make herself the enemy for the greater good.

The woman just died... people need to show some respect.

For Britain top progress as a whole? Let's look at that 'progress' shall we?

She privatised so much of Britains infrastructure that everything goes to **** at the slightest change in weather (privatisation of the railways has lead to their crapification).

More people are living below the poverty level as a consequence of a lot of her policies regarding workers rights and how they have affected the ability of workers to fight for fair wages.

Whole towns and cities have gone from 'getting by' to near slums, because of the ruthless and heartless way she dealt with the closing of the coal mining industry, effectively making several hundred thousand people unemployed almost overnight.

But thank goodness that the richer 1% of the country are that much richer because of her policies. Thumbs up in my book.

Thatcher was a cancerous mole on the arse of British politics. May she rot in hell.

Also, people seem to forget she was someones Mother, and someones Grandmother, I never lived under her "rule" but she deserves all the respect shes been getting (btw i'm Scottish) and the parties in George square were In my own opinion disgraceful.

Thatcher was probably one of the better politicians we ever had.

Sure, she did bad. A lot of it. But she also did a lot of good

And unlike today's current politicians, she could actually be arsed to take action,
instead of making empty promises

She was famous because she did what she said she'd do, for better or for worse
And she still managed to bring Britain out of a bad economical period
User avatar #37 to #31 - theshadowed ONLINE (04/09/2013) [-]
And I will clariffy that she did really **** up in some parts.
Privatising public transport, the Falklands fiasco, and the fact that she closed a lot of Britain's out-dated industry earned her a lot of ire
And she began to think she was practically God towards the end
of her term, and a lot of her cabinet abandoned her
#45 to #31 - lhsleepz (04/09/2013) [-]
alot of this is true but she is guilty of doing it in the way that made the upper 10% of wealthy people even wealthier...... she COULD have done it without bankrupting thousands of families, casting taboos on gays and immigrants and selling of government assets to fund her campaign but that wasn't in the best interest of her and her parties bank accounts so she didn't.

Hitler was also a great politician, public speaker and wasn't afraid to take action but i dont see you singing his praises.

I will concede however that a woman getting where she got without sleeping with powerful people to get there or 'flaunting the assets' as it were, demands some level of respect from me.
I digress by pointing out that this is FUNNYjunk, where the jokes are kept.... i have been more respectful on other forums but i thought this was funny and this site was the place to share it.

What i like best is the news teams, rather than actually report on it, they just pit a Tory and a Left wing person on camera and let them have at it regarding their views to Thatcher :L
#40 to #31 - elburcho (04/09/2013) [-]
******** .

Britain has never recovered from the damage she did to the economy and the way she paved the way for the non-politics that came after her. Since she left power, Labour and the Conservatives have spent their time furthering her neo-liberalist ******** that has helped put the country into such dire straits now.

The woman was scum.
User avatar #41 to #40 - theshadowed ONLINE (04/09/2013) [-]
Are you literally just skulking on this post waiting for you to spread your anti-Thatcher hate?

And Britain was in a (slightly) better state after her term. Those industries needed closing down, outdated as they were.

Don't know about Scotland, but Wales is certainly doing fine after the closing of those death traps they called mines.

Just out of interest, who do you support? Politically-wise, that is
#47 to #41 - elburcho (04/09/2013) [-]
I hadn't intended to write so much. It is just a topic that I feel strongly about and when I saw it I felt inclined to comment on what I see as fatuous sycophancy.

I agree that many of the industries she was responsible for closing needed to phased out, it was the dispassionate way she dealt with the humans who relied on them for a living that is morally repugnant to me. To plunge that many people into poverty was nothing short of evil. Have you been to Wales? Many former mining towns have certainly not recovered from her axe. They may have been death traps, but at least they provided money for food, water, heating and a roof. Better than the dole.
User avatar #51 to #47 - theshadowed ONLINE (04/09/2013) [-]
I live in Wales myself. While has recovered, mostly (well, the North anyway), I do believe Scotland still hasn't. So yes, she did **** up. But not as badly as most modern politicians
#59 to #51 - elburcho (04/09/2013) [-]
I'll agree that most modern politicians are nobs. Parliamentary politics has itself reached a point from which it can no longer function in the interests of the majority of the country, as was made apparent at the last election and will almost certainly be even more clear next time Britain goes to the polls.

Like a considerable amount of people, I think, I have no idea who I support anymore. The two main parties are more concerned with point scoring than helping people. The Lib Dems have lost even the ability to rely on protest votes because of their untrustworthiness. I'm not a racist so that puts the BNP or UKIP out of the picture.
