She gets lauded for standing up to the IRA and facing down the hunger strikers. If a British Prime Minister had done anything else at the time, it would've been political suicide (unlike the hunger strikers, which was just suicide!) If anything she was what you Scots call a "shitebag". If half of my cabinet had been blown up in an IRA bomb, I certainly would not be giving any say in part of the UK to a country which harbored the bastards, and refused to extradite them! I would've ordered border incursions to capture them!!
When you have a dispute with your employer, and find out the union is powerless to help you, when your kid goes on a waiting list for an op and you find out it will be months, thank her, the run down of the NHS started then. When you hear of investment bankers being awarded obscene bonuses, when you are paying exorbitant amounts of rent to a private landlord because there are no council houses, blame her, she sold them off.
She started the "i'm alright, Jack" culture which prevails in Britain today.
