    To be honest I'm more concerned about the theft of 5 tonnes of Nutella but I'll still be celebrating tonight

    It was fairly predictable Ryan.
    Her tenure was seen by many as apocalyptic and she herself seen as slightly right of Genghis Khan.
    I lived through the Thatcher years indeed had been in work for seven years when she came to power.
    It seems to me there is a younger generation who have a slightly skewed vision of the reality.
    I am not saying she got everything right and I am not saying she did not hit the working class hard, but she was the right person at the right time.
    Let's face it she must have done something right for the majority of people as she was the longest serving PM in the last century.
    I expect to be in a minority

    *looks for unlike button* @Vlads Quiff

    She was ruthless in anyway possible..

    Privatised just about anything and every public service we had, we now have one of the worst and most expensive public transport networks in Europe..

    Set the standard for what we know the Conservatives to be about (utter cnuts)...  Made the rich richer, and the poor poorer..

    there's already a thread on it in the members forum.
    Doesn't really belong here imo.

    I think you have become confused with all the excitement .

    I was a kid at the time so didn't really understand the politics of the day but was old enough to see the abject poverty she brought to this city and watched her policies destroy my fathers confidence and self respect as well. So in my eyes she's an absolute cunt and one I certainly won't mourn. I think your view on here would very much depend how gainful your employment and comfortable your lifestyle was at the time.

    Great post pretty much the experience I had..

    I watched my familes dreams and ambitions slowly but surely disappear during the thatcher years. To the point everything they worked hard for, was gone..

    My only disappointment is I am a bit hungover from yesterday . Needs must however and I am sure the beers will pull me through it .
