    Default Thatcher is dead.

    Former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher has died following a stroke, her spokesman has said.

    Should be quite interesting to see how the UK celebrates or otherwise.

    I'll have to make doubly sure to skip the Indo/Sindo for the next while, the articles about her from the usual suspects will be predictably sickening.

    Good enough for her. Salmond should use it as an opportunity to show the dominating conservatism of England's elite

    Friends are determined to give her a fitting send-off.

    There were an awful lot of people threatening to hold the mother and father of all parties when she finally checked out. So it'll be very interesting to see how the North of England celebrates the passing of someone they regarded in the same way that we think about Cromwell.

    Just checked on Wiki, she was 3 days older than him. How's that for coincidence.
