Greens On Thatcher’s death…

Green Party of England and WalesCaroline Lucas, Green MP for Brighton Pavilion, said:

“As Britain’s first female Prime Minister and a true icon in that respect, it came as a great disappointment that Margaret Thatcher did so little for women – inside or outside Parliament – whilst also pursuing a political agenda which sought to marginalise the poor, undermine the very notion of ‘society’ and attack the fundamental principles of the welfare state.

“Whatever you think of her policies, Margaret Thatcher clearly made a massive and lasting impact on the political landscape, both here and abroad, and was incredibly effective in getting her message across.

“It’s just a tragedy that it was all in the wrong direction.

And fellow Green councillor Ben Duncan said the former Prime Minister had “not exactly changed the country for the better”.

He said: “She set in motion the whole notion of privatisation that had terrible implications for the whole nation.

“As a politician I’m not exactly sad because the legacy of her politics won’t be here in the same way”

Margaret Thatcher – obituary

Only the good die young - Margaret Thatcher, dead at 87

Only the good die young – Thatcher, dead at 87

Margaret Thatcher died this morning… no don’t celebrate… save that till after you’ve read The Underground!

The wankers in the press piss me off, what a spineless bunch! The Iron Lady this, the Iron Lady that, she saved the UK, defeated Brussels and freed the Falklands!<
Can these media morons not pass a negative comment towards someone when they have died? Are all people who die saints?

It seems that reality and historical fact go out of the window the day someone dies with all the crap that comes with ‘respect’.

I look forward to Nick Griffin’s or Nigel Farage’s obituary! I’m sure we’ll hear how they kept Britain independent or how they nobley stopped the Islamic cultural invasion!
Thatcher, founder of ‘new racism’ and promoter of greed and selfishness whose term in office is noted for its high unemployment and social unrest.

“I deplored her contempt for social values, for citizenship and her brutal indifference to human suffering.” Tom Robinson

“Scotland’s communities suffer the brutal legacy of Margaret Thatcher to this day” Tommy Sheridan

“A lot of her legacy was disastrous – an enormous increase in unemployment, the collapse of manufacturing industry and the doubling of inflation.” Lord Healey
