I am proud to out myself as a Welshman, and I would still like to smash Maggie's back doors in.
Pervy bastard!!!

Anyway, I'm from Scotland, was too young to remember what Thatcher did or didnt do (born in the early 80s), but! I'll respect her approach on the Falklands so she gets the thumbs up from me for that. Ps.... maybe if she was under 40 I'd skull f**k her......

Not absolutley sure if that is a positve or negative remark..!

however, Maggie was very badly advised when it came to her dealings with Scotland...

She did not seem to understand the subtlety beneath the national and socialist agendas, and how they were and were not connected. As a result she managed to hack off a far wider swathe of Scottish society than she either realised nor intended..

The imposition of the Poll tax and the removal of much burocratic power from Scotland, ignoring the separate national and legal structures that had existed since the Act of Union, was badly judged and created deep suspicion of Westminster across Scottish society, particularly at a time when it seemed that Scottish Oil had bailed out the UK economy..

I know she was trying to sort out loony local government, but she made the classic mistake of forgetting that we are joined nations under a single crown and parliament, not greater England!


Sorry - I forgot this was the NAAFI....

"BSTARD ENGLISH GO HOME.."
"WE WANT OOR OIL"
"Och Aye Nae Bother Whit.."
"You'll have had yer tea ... etc..."

Good post. Balanced and correct. As a Scot, who did live through the Thatcher years, I would still say she was a force for good overall across the UK. Some poor decisions, or advice or both perhaps. But, on the whole she put a bit of bite back onto GB etc.
