The sooner Thatcher dies in prolonged agony the sooner the people can get back some of the pleasure of living that she took away.

There is Plowbridge, showing off his true colors again - wanting her deep agony rather than wanting a quick, painless death which would apparently help us all! rolleyes.gif

Wanting pain in others is no cure for anything.

You can try, Plowbridge, to inflict pain upon me by alluding apparently to the sins of this life will be paid for in the next, and that old people are going to be treated soonest in this way, but it is simply water off my back.

I have lived a good, rewarding life, and am ready for death, come what may.

This world - thanks to its ignorance, jealously, hypocrisy, aggression, selfishness, etc. - is no picnic, and I shall not miss it when the time comes. tongue.gif

I am surprised that there is so much animosity to Thatcher. You have obviously forgotten, or weren't old enough, to remember how economically sick the UK was in the years before she came to power. Remember the likes of Red Robbo (Derek Robinson)...personally credited with causing 523 walk outs at the Longbridge car factory or even King Arthur...determined to draw hard working miners into his own political struggle by avoiding ballots on industrial action.

Sure she made mistakes and yes, the country became too divided. However, there are few who would deny her credit for putting the UK back on track in many respects.

When she lost the leadership the Guardian had a competition for the best epitath for her

I've never forgotten the winner: "Licenced for dancing"

Haven't read any posts from Roch..

007 and sofia seems to be keeping low profile or it's 08er climate clubbed with theLocals rapid ascent to new heights (which I am not sure either) keeping folks away...

in this case facebook took over when TL's new editor/moderator alienated its long-term members and the forum changed.

I missed all of that because when it changed I wasn't able to log in for a long time, and then I gave it up.

Hi 007

It's true what you and Fishtank said. The Local owes something to a number of people who helped to make this site what it is today ...

What will it be like tomorrow?

Well, that rather depends.

eh, you mean what is it like now? an empty cavern. we had a nice meet up last night to send off the hobo. really nice mix of newbie and oldies. looking at the oldies, you realize that most of 'em don't post any more or do rarely. i also post on lost in sweden, but that is also not very active these days (though it would be nice if it got more active again.)
