Why do you say that? From what I understand, she was a brave woman and a good leader. A very good friend of the late Ronald Reagan, who together tired to make the world a better place. I don't understand your feeling towards her.

A stroke = Heart Failure because a stroke will cause the heart to fail sir.

Oh....I see. That part I did not know since I do not live in the UK, but then again, aren't all politicians like that? Even here, in the U.S.?

She changed a lot of things when she was in power and made a lot of enemies.

Killed the British Heavy Industry, the Poll Tax, sold off council housing, closed down most of the UK's coal mines to break the Unions. Forced the Royal Navy to switch from large warships to smaller frigates, which were easy pickings for Argentina's Exocet Missiles.

She even ended free milk for kids as School. :cry:

Im honestly surprised she had a heart failure, don't you have to have a heart to begin with? Hey at least this funeral will be interesting, it'll be the first time the 21 Gun Salute will be done into the coffin. Why not hand her over to the Scottish people? Im sure they could dig so far down they could hand her to Satan personally.

What a disgusting thing to post. Whether you agree with her politics or not - celebrating someone's death is a foul thing to do.

I'm pretty sure there will be plenty more people celebrating her death.

I personally agree with a lot of her politics, and it's easy to take them out of context. I know her policies hurt a lot of people financially, and understand the dislike.

But before people post insults and name calling, imagine it were your grandmother who passed away.

Very easy to try and play the uncaring idiot behind a keyboard isn't it...

Well she may not have been perfect (no politician ever is) and she may have done a lot of things that ****ed people off, but one thing is certain:

As a woman, she still had more balls than most of the men in our current administration here in the U.S.A.
