People: Let's make her sobriquet "The Iron Lady"
Thatcher: Nice, but there is no such thing as Iron. There are only 4 shells, 26 protons, 30 neutrons, and 26 electrons, all of which are individual components and have no relation :)
Respectable PM, but that quote was bonkers.
Good Times! :-)
The extra fact that the person in question is a democratically elected PM who won a 100+ seat majority in her third general election - Blair only won a 66 seat majority in his 3rd GE - suggests that the history might be a little more nuanced than Twitter and Facebook bubbles lead many of us to believe.
I'm totally fine with people criticizing the dead and pointing out their flaws, but celebrating is a bit much.
Feel free to hate Margaret Thatcher but if you are celebrating the death of a democratically-elected leader, you can do it somewhere else. I hear Twitter is good for that. JetPunk is a hate-free space.
And, yes, here is not the best place to celebrate like that, I'm not surprised that QM would remove comments.
Almost literally the definition of niche. No one in public life wanted anything to do with it. The only reason it got a lot of news coverage was because it was so distasteful.
Shouldn’t the first ‘in’ be an ‘as’?
