The evil that women do lives after them. The good is oft interred with their bones. So let it be with Thatcher.

Since I'm a mean person, I wonder how many extra hits this is getting?

Quite a lot by the look of it, and deservedly so. I have no patience with the "be nice" brigade.

Hm. Why specifically the evil than women do? And don't you want to say so let it NOT be with Thatcher.

I didn't like her or agree with her politics, but I get no joy from her death. She was an old woman no longer active in politics.

Sorry to be a wet rag.

I'm not concerned about being kind or unkind to Thatcher. History will decide her legacy and although I haven't followed the news closely over the last couple of days, I'm glad to see there have been at least some reports focusing on her as a political figure and what her policies did, and not on her as an individual. I don't care for the way she's being demonised in some quarters i.e. in unpleasantly gendered terms because she was a woman in a position of power (calling her a witch and so on). It says a lot about the people doing it and nothing about her legacy. But I wouldn't expect anything else.

I looked forward to tramping the dirt down for long time and played the song when I heard she was dead because I always said I would, so I suppose I'm mean too ;). However, it didn't give me much satisfaction given that in hindsight her term in power seems like a relatively innocent time compared to what came after her.
