Thank you Maggie

She helped bring about the end of the Cold War, which bought my family back together. (East/West Divide - Fucking Berlin Wall - only saw my brother, aunts and Grandma when the authorities saw fit to approve our visas)


Thanks to her, I was also able to buy my own council house.  (Councils were meant to use the money to build more - that they didn't, was not her fault.)

Yes, sold off the council houses, so people got mortgages, then put em all out of work so many got repossessed.
She divided the country, and along with Reagan sowed the seeds for the problems we now see.

Maggie God Love Her

The Uk was a basket case in the 70's. Remember hyperinflation, 3 day week, bread rationing, More Strikes than work days. Dead not buried, firemen on strike, miners strikes every winter.

Then Maggie came in with a lot of damn sensible ideas. like a country can't spend more than it earns - Where would we be now had Labour remembered that one!!!!!!!!

When all around her wanted to give up the Falklands she said No. ok you can argue it was imperialism but the folks of the Falklands are mightily thankful for her support and the sacrifice of the armed forces.

I do think she was in power for one term too long but the country she handed back was significantly better than the one she was left by weak willed labour and tory predecessors.

I also met her on a few ocassions, and spoke with her during a couple of conflicts - at the time it was only her office had 16Kb secure speech as did our satelite dets, whilst everyone else was on 2.5Kb Donald Duck (DSSS).
