They say you shouldn't speak ill of the dead, but what if it's the truth? I'm glad to see the old battleaxe is finally gone - as someone who had the luck to go through the remnants of her fucked up welfare system, I'm not terribly sorry that she's dead.

Wherever Pete is, no doubt he's doing a jig to celebrate.

So what you are saying is that we should listen for reports of a man lighting celebratory bonfires with his fingers, -and- we are getting drinks down the pub after work, yes?

In addition, I was thinking on this, and I think it is more that you should not speak ill of the dead to people who are genuinely grieving them.

It would perhaps be rude to dance in front of her son and daughter.

When you have little good to say of a person, and believe they did you and your country harm, I believe it does more disrespect to try to pretend that those things are not true or did not happen just because today they are dead.

The death does stop those things, nor does it go back and edit the past, it cannot do that. To deny the truth of her decisions is disrespectful - it denies those who supported those decisions the chance to defend them, and if the decisions cannot take the weight of examination, they were not good ones. If they can, then her death does not change that one whit.

Forget Thatcher, the real tragedy of the day is that Annette Funicello died. :(

One of the original Mouseketeers. Starred in all those 'beach party' films with Frankie Avalon. Symbol of an era, pretty much. (or, someone I'm actually sad died as opposed to Thatcher)
