Must not praise  Margaret Thatcher?

Geri Halliwell led stars talking about the late politician on the social networking site but after posting a message praising Lady Thatcher she swiftly deleted it and apologised to her followers.

The Spice Girl appeared to anger fans by writing: 'Thinking of our 1st Lady of girl power, Margaret Thatcher, a grocer’s daughter who taught me anything is possible…x’

Geri quickly deleted the Tweet writing simply: 'I'm sorry if I offended u. X'

The singer has praised Lady Thatcher in the past and in the run up to the 1997 election she said: 'I saw a lot of what Mrs Thatcher did. She was definitely the original Spice Girl rising from the greengrocer's daughter to Prime Minister.'

It's not difficult to see why the Left hates her so, even after she died. She was responsible for changing Britains beloved socialist system, and by doing so, proved, as every other country that went socialist has proved, that the country was a far better place without socialism.

Now that Britain has returned to socialism, even more-so than before, she has been proven, once again, to have been right.

Well because of Thatcherite policies, Tony Blair had to re-invent the Labour party as "New Labour" necessarily adopting or adapting Maggie's Conservative policies, and politics have continued in that direction till today's Conservative party under David Cameron.
Maggie has had a similar if indirect influence on other countries' socialist parties - not least undermining the Soviet Union and China.

From the pics I saw yesterday it looks like most of those who hate her so much weren't even alive, or were babies during her tenure as Prime Minister. She was a force for good and history will reflect that.

Thatcher was no consensus builder; she was divisive. She set out to crush unions, privatize, undercut the social safety net (where she could), and push free-market policies that led to the deregulatory nightmares of the future.

She joined with Reagan in support of torturers and human rights abusers around the globe, as long as these folks were opposed to the Soviets. She called Nelson Mandela a "terrorist" and would not join the worldwide crusade against the racist apartheid regime of South Africa.

She supported Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. Her war in the Falklands struck many as an orchestrated stunt, not an act of necessity—though some have seen that military action as a noble blow against Argentina's fascist junta (which the Reagan administration was supporting).

Her economic policies were harsh. She pushed the so-called poll tax—a tax to fund local government—that resulted in shifting the tax burden from the well-to-do toward lower-income Brits. This tax provoked riots—literally—and was so unpopular that her successor, John Major, replaced it. And as Bruce Bartlett, an economist who served in the Reagan administration noted two years ago, Thatcher shifted the overall tax burden from top to bottom. She cut the top personal income tax rate from 83 percent to 60 percent, but raised the lowest rate from 25 percent to 30 percent. To pay for her tax cuts, she nearly doubled the value-added tax from 8 percent to 15 percent. (Some American conservative economists howled about this.) As Bartlett put it, "Thatcher's fiscal accomplishments were much more modest than many of today's Republicans think."

When liberals push their agenda down the throats of the people, i.e. Obamacare, higher taxes, etc., it's called great vision, no consensus required. When a conservative implements their policies, even with strong public support, it's called divisive. So sayeth the liberal intelligentsia and their media puppets. The stench of their hypocrisy sickens the thinking citizen.

Nelson Mandela was not a terrorist. He was simply a communist dupe manipulated by the ANC.

"The stench of their hypocrisy sickens the thinking citizen". Unfortunately, not many citizens even notice. our recent election is exhibit A. Oh, annon 6:58, you left out the part that when Thatcher took control of the British govt, the economy was in shambles labor strikes crippled the country and once great world power was irrelevant. when she left the economy was greatly improved, public services weren't shut down every other week for a strike, and Great Britain had considerable influence world wide.

It's always convenient for cowards to attack the dead. Attacking the living entails some risk.

Margaret Thatcher said "Socialism always fails because they eventually run out of other peoples' money".
