The Iron Lady - Rust In Peace


A state funeral in order, I think - no cremation.
The Lady's not for burning.

(Thanks to my friend Tiddles for both respectful jokes)

    1. Yes, but good old Meryl could not have done it all on her own. It took Arthur Scargill's help to completely destroy the mining and steel industries of South Wales.

  2. Meryl's legacy was prophetic to the point of self-fulfilling: "There is no such thing as Society", she said, and - bugger me - she has now been proved right!

  3. The best joke I heard tonight is: that she was only in hell for three hours and managed to close down two furnaces :)

  5. One thing about her leadership is unmistakable - the devision it caused. After she said, "Where there is discord, may we bring harmony", he split the nation right down the middle, but when all said and done, Winston Churchill wasn't very nice to the miners either.

    1. You are correct Churchill pitched the British Army in against the miners in 1926 and Maggie destroyed them along with the shipbuilding, steelwork workers.

    2. Churchill actually got a bullet through his hat at that time. What we now call friendly fire, or blue on blue.

  7. Thank you Tom. I thought everyone was keeping their heads below the parapets, for fear of upsetting anyone. Well done you. I keep humming Hey ho the witch is dead..... but she did have family and friends who might possibly take offence.

    1. Every opinion in the British Isles is being aired right now, mainly by the BBC who hated her more than the miners!

    1. Piss-Head Pete is no friend of mine. Tiddles treats me as though I pissed in his cornflakes most of the time as well. Mick the Mangler does my laundry.

    1. Tiddles is just what I call him, and I think I am the only person who does. I wish I had friends with manly names like Grit and Ning - are they from Earth?

  11. Actually Grit, Ning and Biddy are all women Tom. But that's all right.
