I find it hard to believe anyone would want to have a "Maggie Thacher" day! She took everything from the people of (SCOTLAND}. Moved employment down to (ENGLAND). Our family were visiting reletives in SCOTLAND in 1999. I was at a house with my 2 kids and there was a quiz show on tv. The quiz master asked a contestent this ? 'What is Margeret Thachers middle name?' As quick as a flash even before anyone pressed their buzzer the 74yr old gentleman of the house answered SWINE!! My kids laughed even though only one knew what he meant and I agree with him. Its sad the way she treated the hard working people of Scotland also not forgeting the elederly people who had done their bit for the country. Only the ones who vote TORY will be pleased for her........

I'm glad that this thread is bringing us back some memories which were glimpses of hope in a really bad time.
One of my good memories is when, she was trying to get more popularity in Scotland, she attended the cup final.
I was listening to the comentary on the radio and as Maggie came up to present the cup the supporters of both sided were giving a loud but slightly muffled chant. This came over on the radio a bit like this:
"MAGGIE MAGGIE MAGGIE GET OO HUCK"
You could almost hear the piss take in the commentator's voice when he said "The fans seem to be wishing Maggie the best of luck.

Please do not refer to that Thatcher woman as 'Maggie'. This was a trick by the Tory Press to make UK voters think that she was a nice person. Her name was (is) Margaret, and I don't think she liked being addressed personally as 'Maggie'.

Of course the fact that my partner's name is Maggie has nothing at all to do with this tirade!

I realize that this response will set off major explosions amongst those who truely hate Lady Thatcher, and that as an American, it is somewhat inappropriate for me to comment without any real investment in Great Britain's internal strifes. That being acknowledged, and speaking only as a foreigner, in my opinion Lady Thatcher was a giant of her time.

While those who suffered from her tough social policies may roar at her visage, they may not realize that Britain was brought back from the back-bench of the world stage, to a front row in what is now badly called the New World Order. Prior to her government being voted in, Britain was a social and financial basket case, listened to by no one, and a morass of socialized government services, which could not pay for themselves, and were bankrupting the government and the new young workers coming into the job market.

Young and well-educated Britains were leaving their country at an incredible rate, not wishing to be burdened with what, to everyone, was a meltdown. Individual unions literaly Balkanized the country, striking whenever the mood struck them, and paralyzing the country and growth in the economy. At the same time Reagan was telling PATCO to go to hell, Maggie struck hard at the unions in her country, and together they brought order from chaos. Then together with the Polish Pope, and a Russian Party Secretary who could read a balance sheet, they fundamentally changed our world, with no loss of life in combat, on an order of magnitude we shall never see again.

She did not start the Falklands War, as some dimwit has written. Galtiari (sp?) of Argentina occupied the unarmed islands for several months, while the UN and Britain tried to negotiate; to no avail. Since the Spanish-speaking twits of Argentina had unilateraly declared war on Britain, and Argentinian jets had aready attacked British ships, the Belgrano was a lesson to the big-mouth idiots who only thought war was parading around the Presidential Place in a comic opera uniform.

The Argentinian Air Force earned international respect for pressing home the Exercet missle attacks on the British ships, (and the Western naval units quietly redesigned their shipping to take missle attacks, after BDA's disclosed fundamental flaws in ship designs of the period). But Lady Thatcher was firm, fair, and focused on insuring the self-determination of the islands, and it is no wonder that they are grateful.

As to those who lost benefits, jobs or welfare entitlements, there is much hatred for the woman who pulled the money train to the side of the tracks and reordered the passenger list to pay for the costs of running the train. But literally every working person below the age of thirty should honor her unto the ages. If they read history at all, they will find out she literally saved her country and their future...

No Cluin, I am not eulogizing her, as rumors of her death are greatly exagerated. I am simply trying to point out that, as DMcG mentioned earlier in this thread, she was well thought of, not only abroad, but in her own country. (Do remember that her party won something like seven elections in a row, so someone was listening).

By the way, but somewhat on the point of the costs and burdens of Britains influence in the world, comes a quote today by member of the opposing party, currently in power:

"I would never commit British troops to a war I thought was wrong or unnecessary. But the price of influence is that we do not leave the US to face the tricky issues alone. By tricky, I mean the ones which people wish wern't there, don't want to deal with, and, if I can put it a little perjoratively, know the US should confront, but want the luxury of criticizing them for it... "   Tony Blair...

Well It was bound to happen; Some Yank with a gaelic handle decides to educate us with his home spun philosophy about how our country was going down the drain etc.
Well Claymore, I reckon she did start the Falklands war by sinking the Belgrano which was outside the exclusion zone and steaming further away from it. I agree the the agression was started by Galtieri, but this was in the background of the UK showing definate signs of withdrawing interest in the area. Why don't you read some of Tam Dalziell's writing on the subject.
If thatcher was the saviour of our economic system, why has the rich in Britain got increasingly richer and the poor got poorer? This is a well proven fact and not a political statment.
I remember the 60's and 70's well and we had a huge merchant fleet.
We had coal mines that were being worked. We had a massive steel industry.
Yes our strike record was a bit poor but the way foreward was the German example where both unions and managment sat down and decided together how their company should go foreward. Thatcher, instead, decided to smash the unions.
As for your reference to Lech Wallenca, do you really think that he was a Thatcher supporter?
As a merchant seaman during the 60's and 70's and have visited Russia, Romania, China and Poland, I take serious objection to any baffoon that suggests that the UK was in anyway similar to these countries.
I often wondered if Thatcher was just another of your American plants like Pinochet in Chile.
One thing that I do agree with you math thath "it is somewhat inappropriate for me to comment without any real investment in Great Britain's internal strifes"

Strupag, while I attempted to gently point out that yes, I was from across the seas (a fact that has not stopped numerous Brits, Europeans, etc from robustly condemming my country), history has a way of providing an overview that overcomes the prejudices of any of the numerous classes (working, labor unionists, upper, intelligencia, etc) whose interests in the final writing of history are still passionate in their minds.

By your words you reveal that you were one of the very people that lost money, power and political position in the Thatcher (Realinement, Revolution, Retrenchment, ...pick one). Whatever your personal views, you have to admit that the country was bankrupt from social spending, and had to go on a diet. And this idea was very apparent to the majority of the country who voted for her in those elections.

As for the German example, there are numerous signs that they are becoming the "sick man" of Europe.

As for the Falklands war, if you can't admit that forcably landing on another country's soil, tearing down a flag of a country the inhabitants support to a man, and herding them into barracks two frigging months before the Belgrano went down, is an act of war, then I refuse to play with your hallucinations.

Secondly, as one who has some knowledge of combat and amphibious operations, the Belgrano had to go. She was two days away, under the superior aircover of the landbased Argentine jets (Britian had one carrier with slower Harriers who had to divide their defense between task force coverage and ground support of combat troops - and almost lost doing just that). Considering that incredible lines of supply the British had to maintain, just to get to the Falklands, and the fact that the Belgrano's guns could reach to any part of the Falklands from the sea, I'd have sunk her at her moorings.

And her sinking cut the guts out of the Argentine landing force, reducing their will to fight, which of course is extremely important if they are holding hostages. It was a brilliant move and saved many British lives (leaving the Argentine government to explain the loss of Argentine lives, which is as a loving God ordained it).

And please note that I said the Polish Pope, not the (at that time) devested Polish Labor Leader, who incidently profusely thanked the Western nations by name and reference for supporting him in his hours of need.

As to my handle, while I am of Northern Irish descent, it refers to (as the Websters II University Dictionary states ("a highly focused, commnd-detonated anti-personnel mine, used primarily to disembowel enemy attackers...) which I used to what I hope was great effect in Viet Nam. I flatter myself that it suits me...

She was just a greedy auld bitch that never cared for anyone.

I'll be glad that when she does die, she goes to hell, because that's what she left here in Britain. A HELL.

I doubt if there is any person who laths Thatcher than myself, but of all her various crimes accusing her of deliberatley ordering the sinking the RANS "Gneral Belgrano" (Ex USS "Pheonix") is tosh. It was a Royal Navy decision from start to finish for the best opperational reasons.

For those who insist that the "Belgrano" was sailing away and was not a legitimate target consider the following (loosly translated from the Spanish)

"Helmsman - Turn the ship through 180 degrees."

"Engine Room - Maximum speed."

"Gunnery Officer - Open fire when we are in range."

Somehow I can't see Halsey or Nimitz refraining from sinking an enemy cruiser in those circumstances.

Claymore obviously ' studies war.' If the sinking of the Belgrano was purely a naval decision, why did all the government papers relating to it disappear ?
Thatcher created a whole new philosophy in England ' Greed is Good '
and we are still suffering the consequences.
Tony Blair seems to be one of ' Thatchers children '

Some of us Brits supported Thatcher some of us still think she was a great Prime Minister, not all of us are arrogant enough to say our personally held view is the view of everyone in this country.Cllr

I hoped this thread would die quickly, but unforunatley it is still with us. We have done all this before. Margeret Thatcher would have to count as my least favourite Prime Minister of all time, but those who were here last time we did all this know that already. It is always gratifying to hurl abuse at politicians (or any other public figures whom we dislike). For better or for worse, the lady in question is now retired. Expressing my dislike would give me no satisfaction any more, as Lady Thatcher is now in her seventies and recovering from a stroke. I feel no temptation to put the boot in. Now let's hope that this unhappy (and useless) thread will just go away. Bye folks. Alan.
