In remembering Mrs Thatcher I would also rememebr the 8,000 tortured and disappeared by Pinochet who she openly supported.

She supported apartheid (Mandela as "a terrorist"), damned Hillsborough families, the Irish hunger strikers, passed Section 28 and drove soaring poverty.
Her government was that most primarily responsible for:

The state of our privatised railways.
Soaring privatised utility and energy costs.
A housing shortage and massive bubble thanks to right-to-buy.
Crushing labour rights.
Her policies devastated Britain's industries and deregulated the banks - a toxic monetary and financial legacy that remains to this day.

And, of course, the vicious, thoroughly unjust poll tax.

Thatcherism survives, and will continue until we all pick up a shovel.
