I despair at the young ones these days. Don't they know how to use Google?

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Sorry if this thread offends anyone, btw. Think of it as celebrating her life.

Offend, Athena? Offend?

In her memory, here's a hymn to Mrs Thatcher.

The BBC news keep talking about her legacy as if it was a good thing.

It's been suggested she's already closed down 4 of hell's furnaces :)

So far today just about every prog on BBC4 and WS has been about fucking Thatcher!

It has just been the same crap over and over again.

Politeness and form dictate that reflections on the recently deceased will lean towards the positive, but have the BBC completely lost the plot?

A contribution from Andy Lewis on Twitter/facebook

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand banker's pay
I am the tax haven far away,
I am the Sun on Murdoch's reign,
I am the rent on private gain.
When you awaken in the morning’s rush
I am the privatised train's crush
Of noisy planes in circling flight.
I am the overstretched NHS at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Stoopid one from the Socialist Worker. The fact that she's dead doesn't make any difference now. (That said, my favourite suggested inscription for her gravestone is 'Licensed for dancing' :) ).

Remember Spitting Image?
