re: Baroness Margaret Thatcher Dies

I regret that the Labour party never had politicians of her stature, you may disagree with her views but you may not, imho, disagree with her sincere belief in them.
A sad loss of a British political icon.

re: Baroness Margaret Thatcher Dies

I have listened to the many condolences coming in today, in the main to her credit and so I feel should. Imho she also paved the way for women in management positions, especially within Government Office, and maor private organisations. In the 70's and early 80's there were very few women in senior positions, I thank that step in the right direction.

Best post yet

When Maggie turned up at the Pearly Gates,

there stood God with 96 of his mates

"Your not welcome here " God said,

we dont accept those who lie of the Dead,

so due to her poisonous prime minister spell,

They sent her packing straight down to HELL !!!!

Justice for the 96

There's a saying " If you cant say anything good, then say nothing at all". Enough said.

Was always the best man for the job. Will long be remembered rather than the lesser wasters in the top job. Especially the Labour non entities.
