    I grew up dirt poor in Scotland in the 80s and 90s and even I find this thread a little much. /getting old

    Now you lot know what some of us feel like when the "Firefly" thread is bumped. =)

    This is a little harsh, isn't it? To be fair to the old girl, there'll always be a need for harsh tory PMs to put the country back on an even keel if stupid cunts keep on voting in sufficient numbers to give us labour governments to fuck things up royally.

    The Tories fuck things up just as much as Labour do, Thatcher included.

    The current government appears to be carrying a lot of New Labour / Blairite ideas - so the idea that there is a stark separation between Labour=fuck and Tory=fix is breaking down.

    Even if there was a clear difference, the idea that the Tories aren't fucking up the country is only possibly believable if you confine "country" to a small section of the South-East of England and focus on one small demographic within that location.
    I don't think I've ever seen evidence that recent Tory governments (I'm thinking from Major on) have done anything concrete for the middle-classes whom they so happily claim to support.

    Aren't you like 21? I kind of agree with the sentiment though.

    When I saw this thread was bumped my first thought was "I hope she's not really dead, I am really not in the mood for a party".
    I grew up middle class in Scotland in the 70s and 80s, and I fully intend to celebrate when she dies.
    If that bothers some of you, you don't have to come.

    Why would I want to go to a party full of 40 year olds?

    Jokes! I'm not offended by the thread either, I'm just bored :(

    Russian version of The Iron Lady more accurate than the normal version.

    I thought that was something invented by adults because they were too weak to take a full day of fooling.

    When it really happens, will we even use this thread? I can't imagine many people wishing that her rest is peaceful.

    There's a rumour that Maggie has died, it's being run on French newswires. Probably a hoax.

    You cannot kill what has not lived.

    This wasn't particularly funny or clever when you said it on page 1 and nothing has changed.

    I find it slightly scary how much people are looking forward to the event, even more so that I know I'd be the same if I was 10 years older.

    Also you're all old.

    @Futaba

    I think he's a cunt (he might actually be a charming chap, I don't know, but if I were looking at this post in isolation, that would be my conclusion), but that's beside the point. I assume the first sentence is supposed to be mildly funny.

    Pretty certain it's a fake twitter account.
