Dead at last

Ah, she is dead. Many will feel inclined to dance on her grave and for very good reasons. She was an evil and uncaring woman who skilfully manipulated her way to power and has reached the end of her life. That is about it from me as I will speak no more ill of the dead.

  1. Same here. It's all over the telly, I've watched the news item twice whilst eating lunch and that's enough.

    1. Kath, it is 11pm here and tomorrow is my day off, so I am feeling quite mellow. Wait until Mandela dies and then there will be genuine grief.

  2. Read your blog and had a quick peek to see if the Margaret Thatcher jokes had started yet. My Google Chrome crashed. Go figure.

  3. Love her or loathe her, she changed politics and not just in Great Britain either.

    1. She did Victor. She was a consummate politician.

  4. I used to believe I would always vote for a woman, regardless of her effectiveness as a politician, because women needed support.

    *sigh* Then Margaret Thatcher came on the scene and proved that _at least one woman_ could be as power hungry, exploitative, brutal, driven by right wing ideology and vicious as the worst of right wing males :(

    1. Hels, any joy that feminists may have felt, quickly evaporated. Not that Meir nor Ghandi did much better.

  5. I take it you're not talking about Annette Funicello, the famous Mouseketeer, who died this week. Today I believe, or yesterday?

    Margaret Thatcher? Yeah, she died too.

    1. River, that was the important news and a surprise, unlike Thatcher.

    1. Grace, I expect I will see her in hell, except hers will be worse than mine.
