Thatcher was and is much hated figure. She destroyed the miners as the welsh hated her for it. Coal/mining industry was the main driver for the Welsh economy in the past.

From what i heard from my london friends that Thatcher is now fond of wine as the Tory party usually gave wine and cheese parties. Her daughter Carolyn is worried about her as she used to hate her mother imagine that. The reason was that Mark was the apple of Thatcher's eye as she went into overdrive when her son got lost in a car rally in Africa.

I won't weep for her for what she did to the welsh, the hunger strikers et al.

There's a certain type of quisling Irish that thinks it is "immature" and "backward" and "inward looking" to express strong dislike of the old witch, no matter the deaths she caused in Ireland. Growing up in the North I thought I hated Thatcher as good as anyone, until I got to know plenty of people in Scotland and Yorkshire - mention her name in their presence and the very paint will peel from the walls.

So I guess they are "immature" and "backward" and "inward looking" too, eh?

Poor Maggie, she's old and not fit to be a proper tyrant anymore. She deserves a slow and lingering death for the immense misery she visited upon so many people, foreign and domestic. She supplied landmines and SAS advisers to the Khmer Rouge after the 'Killing Fields' had been exposed FFS. Thatcher's legacy continues to create suffering 20 years after she left office. She couldn't suffer half enough.

Nobody is saying poor Maggie but rather that she is 85 and ill. We are all aware of her past when she was the Iron lady. She inflicted so much pain and misery on people but then again if we look closer to home there are many who inflicted pain misery and death on their own people; will you have the same contempt for them? Yes I refer to the bombers who destroyed the lives of innocent children for their so called cause.

Ireland has moved on mainly due to the Good Friday agreement and yes we must not forget the misery that was suffered but the misery was not only inflicted by Thatcher.

Thatcher also agreed that Commander Chris Wreford-Brown should attack the Belgrano outside the mutually agreed combat zone and killed over 250 Argentinians --and over the course of that short war British soldiers collected war trophies --cutting off the ears of the Argentinians they had killed. Closer to home she basically destroyed the trade union movement in the UK --particulalry at expense to the Miners.

She not only provided supplies and advice to the Khmer Rouge she was a good friend of General Pinochet and no doubt others --what does that tell you about the woman? While I may not wish her dead I can see why many people might rejoice.

There was no such thing as a "mutually agreed combat zone". General Belgrano was sunk outside the "Total Exclusion Zone", inside which "any sea vessel or aircraft from any country entering the zone may have been fired upon without further warning". Big difference, enemy ships and aircraft would have been fired upon wherever the Brits encountered them, zone or no zone.

Starving people to death, drowning little boys, crushing British industry to destroy the working class,classic, taking milk off children. Not loved by the many.

We have the proto Thatchers already; Harney had such pretensions in her younger days and her behaviour concerning the murder of Aidan McAnespie is a clear indication. However, Harney could not sate her apetite for power in the male dominated Gombín theater. Thatcher benefitted from a desire to con the British public into thinking that equality and change were a reality whereas Harney could only comfort gorge in the face of gombín oligarchy. Ironically she could be gone before Thatcher; it's not like the health minister is going to try diet and exercise to avert the imminent explosion of the organ which pumps her blood. It would be wrong to suggest that the glutinous tyrant has a heart.

Funnily enough people have skipped over Thatcher's most poisonous legacy, the creation of New Labour. 1 million + dead Iraqis, the privatisation of numerous State assets like British Rail, and the ghastly betrayal of the party's working class heritage are just a few of the most sickening aspects of this mutant's legacy, all attributable to the crushing of the left and infiltration of right-wingers like Kinnock and Blair.

Thatcher just like Blair was a sociopath. If anybody cares to read any quality biography of her life and her early days at home they will be enlightened. Basically her home atmosphere was emotionally stunted and loveless and self-sufficiency and cold ambition was expected of her even as a child.

They say that politics is the art of controlling one's environment. And that is why Thatcher was drawn to politics- so she could attempt to control her environment and her leanings were derived from the psychology of her background. Force society (which she infamously declared 'there is no such thing as society) to acknowledge that cold ambition was right, emotion was a weakness and those who could not succeed by the only common measure she could understand, which was 'money' deserved to be left behind and abandoned.

Hmm. Since I suspect she may be undead, how can she actually die??

More seriously, a late lamented UK relative threatened to go into his village the day she died, raise the flag from half mast, and finance a major party amongst like-minded members of the working classes who felt similarly shafted by the system she skewed so much against them.

She's had the last laugh; he's pre-deceased her. Despite being 20 years younger.

I never said anything about Thatcher being 'strangled at birth'. On the contrary I'd like her to suffer before she dies as I can take no consolation from the thoughts of her spending an eternity in hell as I don't believe in it.

Hello! it is 2010 get over it or will go over to you and kiss the face off ye.;)

This is the thing with people who have lived sheltered, or safe lives --no concept of what anyone esle has gone through. I suggest you consider thinking of your life in terms of only the last ten years and any other memories before that are all to be forgotten --can't be done, but maybe you might consider what you ask of others before being obnoxious.

And then think of what trauma Mrs Thatchers actions have caused to some peoples lives and how certain events have been etched on our memories because some things one never forgets --nobody is ever told to get over anything the IRA or UVF ever did but why must peole get over a war monger?

Thatcher almost singlehandly destroyed Britain with her policies which were then advised by Friedman US economist. I would agree withe Capt Con re Thatcher's home envirnoment and upbringing which led her to tough & cold heartless women who steered her country to huge turmoil. (especially derailing the peace agreement which had hopes at that times). It was only resumed when John Major came into power and talks resumed again in the underground between Britain and IRA. The rest was history.

Quite so and certainly her and her politics make for an interesting debate in a serious thread ... but this adolescent nonsense (Is she dead? Not yet but soon, horay!) is quite distasteful and hardly up to standard in a political forum worth its salt.

Heavy clues in there as to the finished article.... cold, loveless home by all accounts. Not trying to engender sympathy for the woman but I wouldn't mind seeing a psychologists' summary of the link between early home life and the later woman who declared 'there is no such thing a society'.

The details of two meetings between Margaret Thatcher and British mercenary Simon Mann before his failed attempt to overthrow the president of Equatorial Guinea were removed from the former SAS officer's newly published memoirs for legal reasons, the Observer can reveal. Mann's involvement in an ill-fated attempt to topple the west African dictator Teodoro Obiang Nguema in 2004 is chronicled in his book Cry Havoc, along with the claim that he dined and even holidayed with the former British prime minister. It is understood, however, that extracts detailing discussions between Thatcher and Mann, in the year before the failed coup, were taken out of the book on the advice of its publisher.

Source (http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2011/oct/30/margaret-thatcher-simon-mann-equatorial-guinea-coup?newsfeed=true) Of his subsequent relationship with the former Conservative leader, Mann adds:
As I know, Maggie shares her son's fondness for the SAS. They had made the difference for her. Gone the extra. More than once. She had for them too. She takes a shine to me. Over the years whenever we have dinner, I'm always sat next to her. Amanda [Mann's wife] and I even go on a game lodge holiday with Margaret, Denis, Mark and his wife Diane.

Margaret Hilda Thatcher (13 October 1925 – 8 April 2013)

The former UK Prime Minister who held office from 4 May 1979 until 28 November 1990 died 8 April 2013.

To her family our condolences.

The legacy of what the Conservative Government did to British Industry under Thatcher is not one to be proud of if you really did want the best for the people. Of course Thatcher was the symbol of “free enterprise” and set out to serve those whose interests were profit for the few. The coal mining industry is not on its own in suffering the decimation of a world class industry in the name of the “free market”. Thatcher lived long enough to see her beliefs demolished when the “free market” collapsed and came running to the State for support. Unlike the Banks who gambled, cheated and were bailed out – Coal mines were closed and communities were left to suffer.

Margaret Hilda Thatcher is gone but the damage caused by her fatally flawed politics sadly lingers on.

Good Riddance.
