Just point out to them, that whilst she might be dead, her legacy is very much alive.
The benefits of her legacy. Increased health wealth and happiness.
 
How can anyone look and listen to the leader of the Greens and not realise she is a complete moon howler?

The Greens are the Watermelon Party, Green on the outside, Red on the Inside

Its a party for smug elites. People who can afford to be socialists.

The Working Man's Party - that hates the working man! Just shows how f*cked up that Party has become!

They love the non working class, both the Chavs with their benefit fuelled lifestyle and the chattering classes of Islington who go straight from a Politics and Economics degree straight into a non job in Westminster and never have a proper job in their life

The working class is to be looked down on and sneered at, especially if they own a white van and have an England flag anywhere near their house

As Orwell said:

England is perhaps the only great country whose intellectuals are ashamed of their own nationality.
In left-wing circles it is always felt that there is something slightly disgraceful in being an Englishman and that it is a duty to snigger at every English institution, from horse racing to suet puddings.
It is a strange fact, but it is unquestionably true that almost any English intellectual would feel more ashamed of standing to attention during ‘God save the King’ than of stealing from a poor box.

The Left Wing - the Politics of Hatred and Envy. Not one of them fit to lace her shoes.
How many of them will match having tens of thousands lining the streets of London to mark their final farewell? Twats.

If free school meals will help to close the attainment gap, how come so many Scots managed to get very good and powerful jobs before the SNP came to power

Private education.

I was with Strathclyde when the change occurred. I agree that it was a good idea in principle but the execution was with indecent haste and not thoroughly planned. Some of the unforeseen outcomes were embarrassing to say the least. I'm glad I'm well out of it.
Fear not, in times when budgets are going to need to be slashed, Police numbers appear to still be going down instead of up, Police are running out of real estate (in Aberdeen) that they can sell off to move into shared buildings with ‘partners’ to save cash; Police Scotland have had to or managed to find money (which is what it will take), to service yet another SNP vanity project which serves no legal requirement or purpose to ensure that......

Gaelic speakers are catered for, ladies and gentlemen I bring you:


“Our public consultation on this plan provided almost 140 responses from across Scotland, with wide variation in comments. In setting out our commitments we seek to balance competing perspectives and priorities whilst delivering on the statutory duties of the Gaelic Language (Scotland) Act 2005 and securing continuous improvement in policing.”

So 140 responses from a population of 5.5m (roughly), not all of which would be supportive based on the ‘wide variation of comments’ mentioned - the real question is WTAF!!

“We recognise that Gaelic is an important aspect of Scotland’s heritage, and has the potential to contribute to social, cultural and economic wellbeing.”

Can someone please explain to me how Gaelic can contribute to ‘economic wellbeing’ based on the fact that a tiny proportion of the population use it (as a second language), and it would appear to be costing us more money in signage alone than it is ever going to bring into the public purse - or am I missing something?

Why are my taxes being spent on this shoite!!

Disappointing but not surprising. Probably not relevant, but how's the crime stats?

3rd poll in a row to show Alba winning a mere 3% of the list vote.
And that Salmond is the most negatively rated politician in Scotland, even when PM is in the mix.
