Default Re: Maggie Thatcher died today

The divisive reaction and the intensity of it is one of the hallmarks of Thatcher.

She ruthlessly divided people into "our people," who needed to be looked after and encouraged, and "them," who needed to told to stop moaning, stand on their own two feet and if necessary, destroyed. That was how she did politics, she did not believe she was in power for the benefit of the whole country.

Hardly surprising that her "our people" mourn her passing while those she lumped together as "them" do not look back on her with fond memories.
