She was bad. She was only good for one thing:
A good War Leader. Falklands.

Her sole acheivment. She killed British Industry and made so many unemployed. She tried to destory trade unions. She wasn't a very nice woman unless you were incredibly rich.

Thatcher dragged Britain kicking and screaming out of the dark ages and prepared us for the 21st Century, she just wasn't very sensitive in her process.

She was the right leader at the right time.

Pity she isn't in charge now, she would irradicate all the institutional insanity that comes along with that PC faggot Blair.

Margeret Thatcher - The worst UK Prime Minister ever
Definately not Thatcher.
More like Neville Chamberlain or Anthony Eden or even Alec Douglas-Home or Arthur Balfour.

The USA sickens me.

I am American and really have no business ranking who is the worst British PM ever, but Thatcher so rocked! May the Iron Lady live on....

The hilarious irony is that when the UK actually gets itself a World class leader, they spend the next 20 years trying to trash every decision she ever made.

Pitt, Gladstone, Churchill, Thatcher - the rest you can keep, especially the current incumbent who is incapable of figuring out birth control so it seems.

Spare me such nonsense. She stole my milk! And destroyed the mining community because of a vendetta against trade unions. Read a book called Tell me no lies. It's a bit of an eye opener.

You didn't need free milk - we were somewhat past the point at which Rickets was a threat to kid's health when Thatcher abolished it.

The miners deserved everything they got and more. Any national industry that uses its weight to bring down governments is due for some pain - couple that with the fact that we the taxpayer were having to subsidise their industry to keep it viable resulted in a situation that had to be addressed. I worked for a private company at the time, and we had to make our own profits or we went under, there are no free rides in this world.

The Conservatives were far from perfect, but since when have we had a "perfect" government.

I didn't live in England, but I lived through the Reagan years and I see little difference between the two. I jumped for joy when we finally got rid of Reagan and I assume Thatcher was about the same - a pure enemy to the working class. No one can say it better than Elvis Costello did, while she was still in power:

"Tramp The Dirt Down" Lyrics

Elvis Costello

I saw a newspaper picture from the political campaign
A woman was kissing a child, who was obviously in pain
She spills with compassion, as that young child's
face in her hands she grips
Can you imagine all that greed and avarice
coming down on that child's lips

Well I hope I don't die too soon
I pray the Lord my soul to save
Oh I'll be a good boy, I'm trying so hard to behave
Because there's one thing I know, I'd like to live
long enough to savour
That's when they finally put you in the ground
I'll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down

When England was the whore of the world
Margaret was her madam
And the future looked as bright and as clear as
the black tarmacadam
Well I hope that she sleeps well at night, isn't
haunted by every tiny detail
'Cos when she held that lovely face in her hands
all she thought of was betrayal

Being a young 'un I don't remember what the Thatcher years were like. All I know is that both my parents had jobs, I lived in a nice little house, there was always food on the table, I had my Fisher Price DIY kit and Roland Rat was on the telly. I was blissfully unaware of politics.

The only thing I do remember was the fact that my Cousin who was 16 at the time had to go to court for not paying her Poll Tax. She was a student at the local technical college learning a trade and did not earn a wage. She was summoned to attend her local magistrates court for refusing to cough up when her Poll Tax bill was popped through the letter box.

She didn't have to pay in the end, but it seems a bit harsh that it went to court. That's my bad experience with the Thatcher government.

Oh and once I dated a sociology student who described me as one of "Thatchers Children". That scared me a bit

I would like to applaud John Major, he gets alot of stick for being the grey man of politics, but he was instrumental in bringing about the peace settlement with the Ira although Blair likes to take the plaudits. Major had the bulls to drop the cliche´we dont negotiate with terrorists´and engaged in intelligent conversation. Israeil take the hint!!!
