I've come to the conclusion that Thatcher was the UK equivalent of John Diefenbaker lol the population is quite divided on her.

No mate. I feel a corpse may be more useful to us.

Corpse? Until I see her smouldering ashes and the stake that pierced her heart I will never truly believe she's dead.

It depends. I think Canadian women tend to revere Thatcher. Which I suppose makes sense - tough, female politicians who stand their ground don't come around very often. But there are also vast circles who acknowledge that she had a self serving political agenda and ruined hundreds of thousands of lives. I can only speak for a few provinces, but I've found talk of Thatcher to be very mixed.

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.

lol, agreed... you poor women don't have much to look up to in way of female Canadian politicians.

And no one cares what western Canada thinks, so don't concern yourself

An english friend on fb posted this ... from what I know of her, sums her up nicely ... not sure if I agree with all of Attlee's policies either but definitely much better than her.

I've always thought a politician with her drive and actual morals would be an amazing thing. She was a disgusting wretch however who single handedly shat all over Britain. She was a stain on this Island.
