Re: Margaret Thatcher dead at 87

I have no sympathy for what she did to the IRA movement ( the detainment, killing and torture of terrorists have always and will always happen, and she was relatively restrained by post-9/11 standards) and she did not intentionally start the Falklands War on a shaky to non-existent reason, however her support of vicious regimes and over zealous stripping down of obsolete UK industries (with nothing to fill the vacuum) seem less justifiable.

Her privatisation, banking, service sector, and council house policies worked well enough through the 80s, 90s, & early 00s, but in recent years have hit a wall.

Who we really need right now is a more humane and economically leftwing Thatcher.
