    Im of the same (lack of) opinion but then again, I'm just about young enough to remember very little of her stewardship, In fact, her leaving office and the battle to replace her is one of my early political memories.

    TBF, I'm probably one of a small few on here who would dare say a decent word about her - product of the times really. Struggling 70s giving rise to staunch right economics. Woman with a steely determination and conviction to do what she thought was right. The declassified Falklands documents help show a private side to a publically strong figure.


    A few of my old Trade Union class will be celebrating tonight, especially those who had worked the pits. I dunno about a glass of champagne, they might just have a large glass of milk.....

    Hmmm... well I'm old enough to have lived through her time as British PM and these are my observations of her as an outsider:

    It says a lot about her determination and will to become Britain's first woman PM in a hugely male dominated political culture.

    Her economic policies were extremely hard on the British working class.

    On paper the Falklands war was ludicrous, but it's easy to forget the enormous positive effect that victory had on the morale of the British people. It lifted the country's spirits in a way I doubt anything else could have.

    Anyhoo, she certainly occupies a unique place in history. RIP.

    One of my Japanese co-workers told me today that she had been "reading lots of Thatcher bitchuaries"

    I can't decide if this is a pronunciation error or one of the best jokes ever...
