Anti-Thatcher Scum Define The Problem with Britain

with 21 comments

Margaret-ThatcherIf you disagree with Margaret Thatcher that’s fine.  She, more than anyone, would have defended your right to do so.

The pitiful, rude and incontinent abuse of her shows exactly why we are so much poorer for her passing.

Britain has become the epitome of sophistry, where gossip and oppressive opinion dominate and diminish our discourse.

It is encouraged by tabloid journalism and broadcasting.   Our attention is always diverted by sensation.   What we miss from Margaret is the ability to focus on a goal.  Ever more we are concerned and trapped  by the midfield battle.  In fact, Premier League football is the perfect analogy – corrupt, depraved, greedy, self-serving, manipulative.

The disgusting behaviour of those who demean the dead says it all.  To those who have posted abuse of Margaret Thatcher here (deleted)  and who pursue their playground bullying, good day to you. Are you proud?

We, the pride of Britain, are very proud of Maggie.

  1. She was a useless, ignorant Friedmaness bitch, and she will rot in hell for eternity, along with Satan!

  2. What a load of tosh – Thatcher ruined the country. Her death was expected and yet her own children were wandering around the globe when it happened. And Mark Thatcher, shady arms deals, not allowed into America because he’ll be immediately arrested. I’m working class and proud to be so – I used to enjoy this blog but I had concerns about your opinions with some of your comments on the levinson report and freedom of the press. Now I know you are quite barking and I am not a Lefty, nor am I scum, but someone who suffered under Thatcher. Indeed the Rhondda still bleeds – Mr Reynolds, with respect you are a fool…a stoned fool but a fool nonetheless.

  3. You need to stick to what you’re good and knowledgeable about Peter namely the need for cannabis legalisation.
    Margaret Thatcher is and always be a divisive figure and when the state chooses to honour her passing with tax payers money then we certainly have a right to express our opinions of her. She ruined far more lives and blighted more societies than any drug (or the results of it’s prohibition) you could name. From where I am the press have been simpering and rewriting the history books to make her look a saint on the whole. This is not about demeaning the dead – it’s about being prepared to express a contrary opinion regarding her legacy.

    She showed zero respect for many living people and so she certainly is isn’t entitled to any when she’s dead.

  4. This line entertains me – “We, the pride of Britain, are very proud of Maggie. “- Is Mr Reynolds who seems to be a heavy right winger really the pride of Britain? Still I give respect that he does post these comments that don’t agree with his principles. For that I gave his kudos but I fear our differences are too great. Whilst he would likely enjoy the Daily Mail, I’d use it to wipe my ass.

    • Dobbsy, I despise the Daily Mail as is evident from my torrent of PCC complaints against it. I always used to call myself a ‘right wing libertarian’ but every time I take one of those psychometric tests it tells me I’m on the left. I’m probably on the right on liberty and the economy and centre left on social policy. I think libertarian is the more important descriptor and what I’m certainly against is the delusional, dead hand of socialism. One phenomenon that constantly amuses me is the bigoted lefties who in their tiny, tribal minds think you have to be on the left if you support cannabis law reform. It is that sort of dullard stupidity that has held our cause back for so long.

      All of us who do take pride in Britain, whatever our politics, will never endorse the disgusting abuse against Margaret Thatcher.

      • I accept your opinions above as valid, but at the same time I feel that you are missing the point. All the abuse is against Thatcherism and Thatcher herself symbolizes this deeply harmful ideology. I know of two local men who hung themselves during the miners strike, later I saw homes repossessed in the valleys and I have seen no financial investment in the valleys to replace the closed down industry. Yes I am from the Rhondda Valleys and I feel no sorrow at Thatcher’s passing. In truth I despised the woman but to be honest our current MP (a Labour man) is a great big waste of space.

      • I was born in Newport as was my father. My mother was born in Maesteg so I know and love the Welsh valleys myself.

    • If you are opposed to Margaret and her policies that is fair enough but if you have joined in the abuse of her since her death than I have made my opinion clear.

      • No doubt she’s partying it up in heaven with General Pinochet as we speak.

  6. I am sorry to sully your fantasies about what Thatcher was. Perhaps I should offer you fairy tails about her, what she was, and the ideas she stood for and perpetuated.
    To my mind, she was an evil bitch, so I say so and I do not have to be a hypocrite about it. She was not worth the effort of cleansing the references to her. Above all this is phoney.
    To accept the veneer of civility in such discourse is at the same time to buy into the idea decency concerning Thatcher herself, when the subject had none. I simply will not suspend my true beliefs in order to do so. And I talk of her with untempered vulgarity, because she was herself vulgarity!


    April 14, 2013 at 2:42 pm

    • I don’t have ‘fantasies’ about what ‘Thatcher was’. Unlike so many of those abusing her now who have no idea at all of the state of our nation when she was elected, I lived through it.

      I was 22 when she was elected, just starting my adult life. She transformed our country from a joke into a proud nation once again. She wasn’t perfect and not everything worked out as one would have wanted. There have been some negative outcomes but overall she was fantastic news and the best leader we have had since the war.

      • Thatcher betrayed the country with her Friedman style economics, all she managed to accomplish was to marginalize the masses, while she empowered and enhanced the balance sheets of corporations(many of them running amuck), turning most Brits into veritable slaves to the government and corporations.
        It’s the re-distribution of wealth that she can take the greatest credit for, the ant-paradigm to Robin Hood. We have all seen the greatest achievement of Friedman Economics in the world collapse of 2008, most of the democratic world is now on the edge of bankruptcy.
        Thatcher was a direct contributor to this consequence. And since then we all are much more in debt (slaves) to both the government, and the world bank!
        If that is your idea of a great leader, my consolations to you!

  7. The Romans used lead pipe to carry their water, and for cookware, but they didn’t know. We ourselves can’t claim the same type of ignorance.
    After Oedipus discovered that he had killed his father, and slept with his mother, he ripped his own eyes out blaming himself for not seeing what he was doing. The facts were concealed from Oedipus, and he still blamed himself. When nothing is concealed from us, who are we to blame?
    Were Brits stupid, unawares, or indifferent to the future Thatcher was to create for them? They voted her in!

  8. Well said Peter. Don’t worry about the lefties and socialists, there day is coming to an end and the majority are truly sick of them. They have not got the intelligence to see facts beyond the propaganda they are brainwashed to spew. Margaret Thatcher did more to spread the wealth amongst the working class than Labour ever did, or has.

    That is as long as you actually WORKED !

    • The English one pound note is a promissory note from the government, it is an IOU in fact. At one time in England this note was a promise that it could be taken to the bank and exchanged immediately for an amount of silver or gold(tangible and real), but now all it promises is an exchange for another one pound note(more paper and promises). The only thing that gives paper money any common value is that we all pay what the government calls taxes…In effect we are all born in debt to the government because of this original sin of being born English.
      The whole world economy is based upon currency, and therefor debt(IOU’s) and the promises and/or demand of the repayment of debt.
      This system/structure has a life of it’s own and it has a clear direction. Where it is taking us is both ghastly and frightening…it has nothing to do with being left, centre, or right in your political beliefs!
      At the highest levels of the world bank, paper debt obligations are being exchanged by countries for the real tangible intellectual, and physical assets of the countries, and the real tangible wealth of it’s peoples…what do you think austerity measures are?
      Thatcher had not an original, real idea in her head, she was brainwashed by the ones that had control of her. She was not a leader but a puppet of the system.


      April 18, 2013 at 12:48 am

      • This is how peoples are being robbed of their true inherited wealth by a system based upon paper promises. Just try to feed or shelter yourself with a paper IOU…it means nothing!

      • Robert, do you speak to Unicorns and see aliens too? You sound like you have a lifetime supply of Bacofoil in your closet. Watch out, here come the reptiles…blah blah…

        P.S I’ll give you a sack of spuds and a carrot for the computer your on, hold on, it was made by an evil corporate machine and you paid for it how? Oh yeah with money ! IDIOT !

  9. I hope you appreciate the complete return to feudal England when it happens. This time instead of Lords owning everything, it will be corporations who own and control it all.
    The dark ages, what a wonderful time it was!


    April 17, 2013 at 1:20 pm


    Typical leftist hypocrite and anti-thatcher scumbag. Just to think filth liek this is teaching children. Frightening though and a good answer why the country is so dumbed down.
