    It'll be a net win if you charge an admission fee for her grave. I'm sure there's still a large number of people willing to pay to dance on it.

    My FB lit up with American conservatives and Monarchists, yes they do exist, crying over her death. There are good reasons the woman is hated by a large percentage of UK residents.

    She shat on the working class.

    Sold off all the council houses so that working class families can't get decent housing these days and are forced to rent from Slumlords at high prices

    Sold off the Utility Companies to Private owners so that now pensioners freeze to death in winter because they can't afford the expensive fuel prices charged by these profit-hungry monstrosity companies.

    Stopped free school milk

    Poll Tax/Council Tax (making everyone pay a huge chunk of their income to the Local Authority in Tax with no regard as to their ability to pay this)

    Decimated our Heavy Industries costing millions of jobs - at the height of her power there were 3 million unemployed!!

    Supported Apartheid.

    she had dementia for years ... her daughter had to continually remind
    her that her husband was dead ... so, there is that:
    she died not knowing who the fuck she was or where ...

    (just like Ronnie, BTW ... I can't tell you the guilty pleasures
    when I read that Nancy had to remove all the mirrors from
    the house in the last years, because he did not recognize himself ...)

    Economic freedom may not be pretty, but it is profitable. And the British government seemingly can't afford to waste money right now, can it?

    Yeah, austerity has worked real good for the UK, it's not economic freedom when you blatantly game the system.

    She also broke the Act of Union by introducing the Poll Tax in Scotland a year before the rest of the UK, not that anyone bothered at the time.

    "Lady Thatcher had become increasingly frail in recent years following a series of small strokes in 2001 and 2002.
    Her daughter Carol also revealed in 2008 that she had been diagnosed with dementia, which had increasingly affected her memory for the last decade.
    [...]
    Lady Thatcher published two volumes of memoirs. The first, The Downing Street Years (1993), covered her time as Prime Minister, while the second volume, The Path to Power (1995), concerned her early life. She also published a magisterial volume on international affairs, Statecraft (2002)."


    The third one was to be called

    As a last "fuck you" to the less well-off in British society, her funeral cost at least £10 million to taxpayers. Yeah, that really sticks to her philosophy..

    I never heard the support of Apartheid part. I mainly read of some of her negative qualities from Roger Waters and Peter Shaffer (Amadeus). Oh, and Gerald Scarfe's cartoons of her are vicious and awesome.I Knew she had a reputation for being imperious and condescending, that some questioned her actions in the Falklands, and that she tended to not do well with the lower classes. That's all I've read and heard, but I don't know enough about her life to make a full assessment of her. It is rather eerie that she should have memory problems like Reagan.

    Meanwhile, I just checked about the Apartheid part. This article claims that it was otherwise.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/margaret-thatcher/9997714/Margaret-Thatchers-vital-role-in-ending-apartheid.html
    '...all those who took part in the rise and fall of the Dune project learned how to fall one and one thousand times with savage obstinacy until learning how to stand. I remember my old father who, while dying happy, said to me: "My son, in my life, I triumphed because I learned how to fail."' -Alejandro Jodorowsky

    And for those who've always seen her as the Mother Teresa of the free market, remember that the overall tax burden in the UK went up under her rule.

    So, perhaps she is a lot like Mother Teresa after all.
