Thread Name: Songs About Thatcher
Subject: RE: Songs About Thatcher
"It is a shame so few of the above contributors, many of whom were neither born nor infants in the '80s, should show such little respect or common decency that they should not offer condolence to the relatives. Still, I suppose that "thought for oneself and all others go hang" is typical of the current approach today, promoted by Blair and his views on education.
RIP Mrs. Thatcher and my condolences to Mark and Carol."
1. What relevance whether or not people were born in the 80s or no? Are you old enough to remember WW2? Regardless, I bet you have strong opinions on the participants whether picked up from family, schoolbooks, newspapers or whatever. History is passed from generation to generation. Hell, on this site above all others, so much of what is posted/ songs recounted etc is waaay beyond the lifespan of anyone on here.
2. As for "thought for oneself and all others go hang" and you citing it as something (invented and) promoted by Blair, words fail me! Wasn't it Thatcher who originally said there is no such thing as society - in other words, bugger everyone else.
3. As for respect for Thatcher in death. Why, pray tell, should she receive respect in death when she manifestly had none for the people whose lives she ruined in life? People whose livelihoods and communities she wilfully destroyed, people who experienced the suicides of loved ones because of her barbarour ideological cruelty. Families of the 300 killed when she sunk the Belgrano even though it was sailing away from the war zone. Criminal action, nothing more, nothing less.
And as for her offspring. Her idiot son couldn't find his own arse with his two hands never mind find his way across the Sahara.
One thing bugs me. What exactly did he do to merit a knighthood, other that avail of mummy's contacts to sell arms. Then there is his little adventure in southern Africa. Sure enough, the apple does not fall far from the tree.
I applaud all the songs cited on this thread. May the bitch rot in hell.
Yours aye, speaking as one old enough to have lived through her disastrous spell in charge and to have suffered on a personal level as a direct consequence of her evil and divisive policies and actions.
