That said, you'll find few people here who will celebrate her death. But then the British are in the best position to appreciate the depth of her wrongdoings. I rarely dance on graves, but I won't blame them for doing so.
That's a valid point you make about the Canadian women enjoying her for being a tough female politician who stands her ground, the only female leader we've had is Kim Campbell, and, well, surely you remember how that went I suppose I should have been less general in my statement. I find that people out east in Canada hold her in a relatively high regard. I've only been out west a few times and I certainly wasn't discussing Thatcher lol.
