Boo but no hoo


Well that's all folks. 

In 1979 she struck me as a middle class Tory harridan, twinset and pearls with jam and Jerusalem values, not my cup of Earl Grey at all, but during the Falklands War even I thought she had a point; fascist aggression had to be faced and defeated. Except of course, Tory cuts and perhaps South American machismo had aided it along; and to her the fascist enemy of her fascist enemy was her friend...

Her behaviour during - and after - the miner's strike was unforgivable; I don't need to explain that to my regular readers of course, but a few less publicised facts:

To break the miners she bought coal from Peru, who used child labour, Poland, her ideological enemy and there were instances on the picket lines of miners recognising serving soldiers dressed in police riot gear.

I could go on of course, but there is a party to go to.

EBC rules OK?

So the BBC might not play Ding Dong! the witch is dead?

Of course we in Scotland are used to censorship by the BBC EBC Scotlandshire, even if it's rather more subtle than a point blank refusal to face facts...

Oh Iain...

"Fuck every cause that ends in murder and children crying."

An acquaintance that I wish I could count  as a friend.
