Teachers discuss Margaret Thatcher's Death

- Whatever your politics, a formidable woman. RIP.

jumad

- Even though I lean more to the Left now than I did when I was younger, I was very sad to read this.

cinnamonsquare

- I disliked Margaret Thatcher and hated much of what she did. Wishing ill of others is unbecoming to educated, civilised people, however.

Middlemarch

- I disagreed with her *many* principles but she held principles and that is something to be admired. In this day and age, where holding a principle is anathema to a politician, that made her formidable.

lanokia

- I can't forget the way she ripped apart the lives of working people.

pomunder

- She had two principles: be condescending to the poor, and be a poodle to the rich.

bobvincent

- Never forgotten, never forgiven.

emilystrange

- Condolences to her family. I never agreed with her and hated much of what she stood for, but she was indeed formidable and stood up for what she believed in.

QFE

- Thatcher inspired either adulation or utter loathing, in roughly equal measure, and there was almost no fence-sitting regarding her.

bonkers 704

- Apparently she wasn't in favour of cremation, so the lady's not for burning.
