Why people hate Thatcher


.. because she made them face reality.
PS. Lovely quote from ex-Fabian Stephen Pollard:"When you give power to those previously subservient to bureaucracy and ideology, everything blossoms"

Well she did like cutting things (unions, pictures) down to size...

"Arthur Scargill, I'll make the N.U.M. 400 pixels wide...." That kind of thing....

Because she was the milk snatcher

Mr fact - did you sort the size?.. 'Cos I didn't

Don't know about the size, but someone does appear to have renamed the file witch.jpg

P.S. I would have been at Junior and Middle School after the notorious Thatcher milk thefts, but I distinctly remember being in charge of handing out third pint bottles of lukewarm milk. Maybe the entire school was poverty stricken enough to still be eligible, or the parents' association raised money for a dairy farmer parent to provide at just below cost. Incredible the idea that a local community could look after those sorts of things itself... It must be a trick of my memory.
