A STRANGE KIND OF AUSTERITY MEASURE


I would like to point out that Margaret Thatcher is the only person I have ever wished dead. If that makes me a bad man and/or a bad priest then so be it. At least I am an honest one who does not dissemble or cloak my true nature. And, above all, at least I have never voted tory. That would, in my opinion, make me a very bad person indeed.

  1. Clem Attlee genuinely was a modest man, with not a lot to be modest about. Consider the following tribute: “He was a serious man and a patriot. Quite contrary to the general tendency of politicians in the 1990s, he was all substance and no show”.

    Now consider who it came from…

    …Margaret Thatcher.

  2. I’ve never wished anyone dead, but there are those to whose death I reacted, in all honesty, “I’m glad you are, finally, dead.” They are generally those who led long lives of many evil deeds, and never had to pay for it. Edward Teller (whom I actually met once, and was as reprehensible in person as in career) was one. Margaret Thatcher is another.

  3. In the NY Times this morni9ng was a photograph of a grafitti covered wall in Ireland. It read: “The Iron Lady. Rust in peace.”

    I think that her most despicable action was the Falklands War where she rode the deaths and injuries inflicted on both sides to victory at the polls.

    The same thing has been done here and it is done because it works. We (both Americans and Britons) have blood on our hands because of that fact.
