Is this how low certain people of this country have become? I've never heard of anything so disgusting in my life.

I presume you mean this.

I don't have the words.

It's a bit late to be still blaming Maggie for everything that went wrong in the mining homelands, but I've always said that when she does die, there are still areas that will put up the bunting and have a street party.

It's a T Shirt for goodness sake and I've certainly seen worse. I won't mourn her as she did the exact opposite of what she said she would do when entering No 10. I think it was something along the lines of bringing harmony when in fact she ended up almost splitting the Nation and even her own party got rid of her in the end.

It's not just a T Shirt though and I expect the image it creates in many peoples minds does the TUC no favours whatsoever.

Children will be children. It's a T shirt, as Condom says.

It's juvenile, and in appalling taste, but then it serves to tell us a good deal about those who want to wear it. I doubt that Margaret Thatcher could care less.

To be honest there's a lot of people in this country who will happily dance on Maggie's grave.

"It's a bit late to be still blaming Maggie for everything that went wrong in the mining homelands".

Why? Does the person who is to blame change over time?

The shirt's in very poor taste, mind.

Margaret Thatcher's policies directly contributed mass unemployment. The financial and moral poverty in the inner cities of this country are a result of this.

The actions of the ruling party are felt many years after they've been voted out of office.

I'm sure you feel the same about Blair & Brown...

What a sweeping and biased statement. I do not think much of politicians of either party, but Maggie was democratically elected. IMHO some of the things she did were good - the re taking of the Falkland Islands, the opposition and defeat of fanatics like Arthur Scargill, and a freeing up of the economy which, far from contributing to mass unemployment did quite the opposite. Big mistakes such as the poll tax and, towards the end, megalomania, there certainly were, but I suspect if there were a poll on whether she was good or bad for our country , that the good vote would win. I am not a devotee of hers but would vote, narrowly for the good vote.
