Les Jones BS: Thatcher Statue Beheaded (42) RE: BS: Thatcher Statue Beheaded 07 Jul 02


Leftie bile hey? It's worth remembering that the Conservative Party got shut of her. Now, why was that?

Not because she stopped milk for school children or because she took unemployment to 4 million and broke the link between school and work ........ I could go on. No, they got rid of her because people were ready to chuck her and them out. Not bile, memory.

When folksongs are re-generated in the oral tradition the old songs may be lost but not destroyed, but I do like the idea of the passing on and adding to. Is this concept alive in other aspects of human experience?

The Watts Tower was built, I think by one man (help me here someone) but he certainly built on it over a long time. If we move from the individual to the communal and from the permanent to the developmental things become much more interesting

What about that , was it a blanket?, made from thousands of individual squares to commemerate victims of AIDS. I remember communally decorating curtains in the Co-op Hall in Chorlton, Manchester, UK with Woodcraft Folk.

OK, distruction is difficult but those Stalins and that wall had to go and in that context the Thather stature, commemorating exactly what???????, is much closer to Stalin than Buddha.
