    You don't have to be a fan of someone to recognize them as a great politician.

    She was an awful, callous politician who made life worse for millions.

    She'd been sitting around waiting to die for quite some time now.

    was she? Thats somewhat debatable. Particularly her stance regarding communism which was seen as far as western politician go, extreme.

    Curious if thatcher was iron enough to survive an nuclear war.

    Hello all,

    As a non Brit it is a bit difficult for me to form an opinion about her, at least not without have a very thorough look at her career.

    Could someone here please give me a little background? Her pro's and con's?

    I'm certainly not a fan of the women, but you gotta respect a person who, seeing that her country has a problem (and there was one), attempts to actually do something about it. The results have some good and some bad, but hey nobody's perfect.

    And here's the ''nobody's perfect'' part. That quote is utter bullshit destined to appeal to people who think socialism = ineffectual nanny state = communism = evil. It's baseless electoralism in its purest form.

    She hated gays and she hated welfare. Clearly a wonderful human being.

    Shafted anyone who wasn't in the south east, Shafted the Miners and Unions hard, Hypocritical and brutal to any dissenters.

    I have a personal dislike of her, she targeted my home town specifically as we where starting to recover on our own then she instigated a "managed decline" that threw thousands into poverty and gutted local infrastructure and investment, and redirected as much effort an resources as she could to citys on the south coast.

    yeah well, the problem isnt that she was a terrible politican. The problem is that she wasnt a good one either. - But that is true for many of them. Thatcher was a female. That alone gave here a lot of press. Doesnt mean it was easy for her or anything.

    The only problem I have is heir stance on communism and the Soviets which was rather extreme.

    But she was not alone with that. There have been enough people on both sides of the fence which had the feeling everything should be cleared in one big battle once and for all ...

    Methinks Tagaziel would have a different opinion if Thatcher ever said anything negative about furfags. :rpgcodextroll:
