Definitely an original.

My favorite rejoinder to Thatcherism has always been Richard Thompsons's "Mother Knows Best"...

Goodbye to one of the greatest postwar leaders in the free world. She inherited an economy in greater malaise than that of the USA during the last five years, and turned it completely around. RIP.

Awesome woman that historians will study for years. She is way more interesting than that silly prop of an English Queen.

She wasn't loved by all....an MP, on hearing the news, said, "tramp the dirt down." I didn't like her politics but you had to admire her toughness and fortitude.

I drew this in 1991. A lot has happened since then.

why f hates her so much...she was right long before the left's mistakes became apparent to everyone else...her predictions for the eu:

"Germany would chafe at the inevitable need for greater inflation, and that the poorer countries would inevitably be uncompetitive and need bailouts that would not easily be forthcoming"

http://www.businessinsider.com/margaret-thatcher-on-the-euro-2013-4

her eulogy for reagan is forceful and eloquent

I'll never forget the scene of the British navy steaming ever closer, day by day, to reclaim the Falklands. The actual war lasted all of a day. There might have been a segment of the British populace that loathed the Iron Lady's domestic policies but i would hazard to guess her unflinching resolve in the Falklands matter rekindled national pride in a good number of the discontents. R.I.P. Dear Iron Lady

Dr F, just curious, let's say you were dying in burning car and only a Conservative could save you, would you let him/her or would you rather perish. Just wondering man, your hatred for anything not Liberal/Socialist is disturbing. Unless of course this is just your internet persona?

I Don't wish any ill will on you of course Dr, this is just a question.

The recent plebiscite held in Port Stanley indicates that all but one
Falklander is thankful for Maggie's resolve and wishes wholeheartedly for
'confusion to Cristina'.

I would rather die than be rescued by a Conservative!

There are exceptions, though ;)

They're dropping like flies.

Annette Funicello is fluffing the Big Kahuna today too.

Truly a sad, sad day.

Shouldn't have expected anything less from this crew. Hope you don't have to eat your words some day Moosedrool. By the way, what's with all the objectifying of woman, (it's fine if Sara P. saves you as long as her big tits are in your face). I thought it was the womanizing Conservatives that did that type of thing, or, that's right, it's ok for you guys to do it, forgot about that one. Well, have fun pissing on someones grave. you people showed more respect for Saddam after he died.

Thatcher outperformed the upper class twits and gained the support of those still living.
