DEATH OF THATCHER

Margaret Hilda Thatcher (13 October 1925 – 8 April 2013)


The former UK Prime Minister who held office from 4 May 1979 until 28 November 1990 died 8 April 2013. To her family our condolences.


The legacy of what the Conservative Government did to British Industry under Thatcher is not one to be proud of if you really did want the best for the people.


Of course Thatcher was the symbol of “free enterprise” and set out to serve those whose interests were profit for the few.


The coal mining industry is not on its own in suffering the decimation of a world class industry in the name of the “free market”.


Thatcher lived long enough to see her beliefs demolished when the “free market” collapsed and came running to the State for support.


Unlike the Banks who gambled, cheated and were bailed out – Coal mines were closed and communities were left to suffer.


Margaret Hilda Thatcher is gone but the damage caused by her fatally flawed politics sadly lingers on.


Good Riddance.
