Like I say I despised her politics I think she is possibly the worst PM we have ever had in living memory.

And I have no problem with people expressing a opinion, even if it is just to say “I won’t mourn her” because frankly neither will I. My issue is the way that people are expressing their opinions, ATS is an intelligent discussion forum people should be like you and able to articulate their opinion without disrespecting others.

People who condemn and revile Lady Thatcher tell us more about their souls than hers.

When I think about me dying today and her living, would she take the time to remember my life? No.. So I really couldn't give a toss whether she was a good or bad poliician, she is just another person and every dies eventually.

I had to stop with my daily activity and take my hat off to you and for respect to the Thatcher family. You are to be commended for you compassion for the loss of a family member of a family no matter what family it is.

The Bible says, "The last enemy to be destroyed is death." If death then is an enemy, it is not a friend no matter what human he/she may be.

Concerning politics, we should let God be the her judge. For we all must give an account of ourselves before the judge of all the earth.

God bless you my friend!

I didn't like many of her policies and the way they were enacted, although the totally socialist union controlled state she destroyed was destined to fail at some point anyway.
I am not sad in any way that she has died (I didn't know her personally) but I would not celebrate her death as some public out-door parties I have watched coming from Scotland today have. That is a total disgrace if you ask me, as are some of the comments I've seen on ATS.
She was not Hitler or Pol Pot, put it into perspective, ok people lost their jobs in their millions, but there was a benefit system to prevent starvation and homelessness, and there were no death camps or armed guards snatching people in the dead of night.

I wonder how many of you condoning this behaviour, smiled when they saw people dancing in the streets over the death of Hugo Chavez.

Here's an interesting bit of writing which is prelevent to the mood of this thread.

Oh don't be so pathetic.

Why shouldn't people express their feelings towards this vile person who destroyed so many people's lives?

I for one, amongst my many family members will be celebrating her passing but mourning the fact that her disgusting policies are still alive and well in the UK.

It is the only time in my life when I have felt a wave of pleasure on hearing about someone's death.

She did nothing for this country except advocate greed and selfishness.

No words can express mine and millions of others hate for what this woman was responsible for so why should we have to show her any respect when she showed none to us.


where did she advocate greed- catch a grip, "joy" at the death of a pensioner

who was dancing in the streets for Chavez?

Does "whataboutery" constitute an opinion now?

In another era, she would've been hanged. She represents nothing good and I think she's unworthy of the publicity she's getting for her death. A truely evil person.

Well then aren’t we lucky that times have moved on….. just seems that some people are struggling to catch up with the rest of us.

In another era people fought for what was important, took actions towards it. Nowadays we languish on internet forums and we celebrate mediocrity.

People die everyday, it's not special. She was old, death was coming anyway. A lot people don't even reach that age, I don't see why we must be all sad now and why this is so popular.

I never said we all had to get all upset about her death only that we should show some respect, regardless of what we might have thought of her politics.

I'm sorry (I'm not) I have seen no proof that she was human, and therefore can feel no compassion - as if a pigeon had fallen from the sky, if you will - There is a party in town right now so I'm heading there to celebrate with the hundreds of others, this is a great day, you just have to accept that many people feel this way, it's no reason to be ashamed of a web site, is it really?

Everyone will have opinions. M. Thatcher was a polarizing leader, to be sure. Not everything will be liked, lauded or appreciated on ATS.

I commend your attitude, but must allow for everyone else's.

Regards

You're just starting to notice how vulgar people can be?

While there are times when this place is drowning in vulgarity, there will always be a few rays of light. Those rays being threads that are well-constructed and supported by rational thought.

She was human, don’t be so absurd she may arguably have lacked humanity but she was a living being, just like you and I she had two eyes, ears, arms, legs and grey thing in her skull and a pump in her chest. Just like you (I would assume) and I she was loved she laughed she went to work, she had kids and she gave love and just like you and I someday will she died. In my book that makes her human regardless of how much I despised her politics.

I think it is frankly sick that you are going to a party to jump for joy at her death you as a intelligent human being should see why that is wrong.
