REGARDLESS OF YOUR VIEWS TOWARD MARGARET THATCHER TRY SHOWING A LITTLE RESPECT – Nobody in this life is going to be popular with 100% of the people, life simply doesn’t work that way; there is good and bad in all things.
I grew up in an era which saw the then Labour Party almost destroy Great Britain with its socialist movement to vilify and penalise the rich and empower the unions. Where did that get us? A ruined economy and a workplace destroyed by left-wing Marxism which made it almost impossible for industry to operate. Margaret Thatcher was not responsible for killing off industry; the Unions were.
Miners; yes I had a certain degree of sympathy but when you continuously strike is it any wonder why a mine cannot operate profitably – if you had a business where the likes of Arthur Scargill continuously put production in peril, would you keep paying out just to keep it open?
Poll Tax; yes not exactly a good idea and one that I certainly wasn’t happy about, but that’s didn’t give me the right to go rioting on the streets – violence is only ever used by the ignorant and small minded because they simply are unable to articulate their grievances in a intelligent way.
One thing I didn’t really understand at the time of the Poll Tax is why the Left Wing Marxists took offence. After all isn’t that what they wanted; everyone to be taxed to death so that the precious welfare state could thrive and turn us all into lazy lay-abouts?
Again these are just my views and I am entitled to them and anyone is welcome to leave a comment below.
Right now it appears everyone is jumping on the ‘Hate Margaret Thatcher’ band wagon. Many of these people were not even born when Margaret Thatcher was in power and yet they join the ranks of the anarchists and vilify her. This surely has to be the lowest form of ignorance and yet I feel this is more about inciting violence rather than engaging in a political debate.
The Prime Minister, David Cameron, has announced that Margaret Thatcher’s funeral will cost an estimated £10 million and that’s fine – considering the amount of taxpayers’ money wasted on Foreign Aid that feeds the greed of corrupt officials this sum is poultry.
Alistair Campbell, Tony Blair’s ex-press secretary has come out and said that Cameron is using Thatcher’s death for political gain. It never ceases to amaze me that some are so quick to point the finger and anyone who knows Campbell will know he has no room to point fingers at anyone.
Apart from all the anarchists we also have the BBC and once again it shows its true Left-Wing colours as it announces it will play the song “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” from the 1940’s movie The Wizard of Oz. This song has gained popularity since Margaret Thatcher’s death among the anarchist and its sales have pushed it up the charts.
In 1977 the BBC refused to play the Sex Pistols hit song ‘God Save the Queen’ during Her Majesty’s Silver Jubilee; because quite frankly it was offensive and dare I say disrespectful.
As most of you may know the Black Bloc Anarchist Group is threatening to recreate the 1990 Poll Tax riots in London in order to disrupt the funeral of Margaret Thatcher.
This all leads me right back to the title of this article; “Regardless of Your Views Toward Margaret Thatcher Try Showing a Little Respect”
Would it really be inconceivable to allow Baroness Thatcher to be laid to rest, alongside her husband Denis, in peace? Is it not enough that she is dead and while you might be celebrating the fact can you not show even the smallest amount of humility towards her grieving family?
Would you really appreciate a mob outside your door calling your mother foul names, burning pictures of her and calling for riots to celebrate her death? Unlikely would be the answer and so I would implore all British citizens at this time, regardless of your political views, to put aside your bigoted and hateful views and accept the fact that some people have lost someone who was very dear to them.
Right now, considering the vile behaviour of some quarters in the UK, I am thoroughly ashamed to be British and if this is the sign of times to come then I would rather have no part in it.
