Thatcher’s Greatest Tribute

The greatest tribute to Margaret Thatcher, who died on Monday, has been paid by the Marxists and former coal miners of Great Britain, who have been celebrating the passing of the Iron Lady by having celebratory drinks and even street parties (which predictably turned to violence in Brixton and Glasgow).

In Brixton, a charity shop window was smashed by crowds holding banners saying ‘The bitch is dead’ and ‘Rejoice, rejoice, Thatcher is dead’.

In George Square, Glasgow – the scene of the 1989 poll tax protests – 300 people toasted her death with champagne and party poppers.

In the 1970’s it was these misguided ideologues who held sway in Britain, after a series of lily-livered Prime Ministers, notably Edward Heath and James Callaghan, allowed Trot-run unions to cause mayhem in Britain.

Rubbish was piling up on the streets, morgues were closed due to strikes so there was nowhere to store corpses and tax rates were so punitive there was a constant brain-drain to the United States. Britain was laughed at by its European neighbours and, when it was forced to go cap in hand to the IMF for a bail-out under Callaghan, Britain became known as the “sick man of Europe.”

Thatcher not only hammered these loony left ideologues into the ground. She never forgave them. To the extent that consequent British Governments overshadowed by her spirit (those of Major, Blair and now Cameron) continued to class these leftists as yesterday’s men and women.

Thatcher squashed the Left so hard – and was around at a time when she had some influence in the winning of the Cold War against the failure of Communism in Russia – that in modern Britain Marxists / Trotskyists are hard to come by. “Why would anyone want to follow such a failed set of ideas?” students of politics ask. And they don’t.

Dr. R. J. Rummel, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Hawaii, is the scholar who first coined the term democide (death by government). Dr. R. J. Rummel’s mid estimate regarding the loss of life due to communism is that communism caused the death of approximately 110,286,000 people between 1917 and 1987. And Brits know it.

The Far Left in Britain today is, let’s face it, a bit of a laughing stock. The Citizen Smiths screaming that “hooray the witch is dead” on Monday night are just angry that in fact their failed brand of leftist politics is dead. They are like Al Qaeda who feel obliged to fly hijacked airliners into the World Trade Center because America is dominant and successful compared to what remains of their shabby Caliphate.

Britain’s Socialist Worker Party is a shambles, with an increasingly miniscule following which has been ripped apart by internal strife. In December 2012, four SWP members were expelled from the party due to alleged secret factionalism during the run-up to the January 2013 national conference. In response, around 100 members formed the Democratic Opposition faction. A Socialist Worker Party (SWP) Disputes Committee document was discussed at the party conference in January 2013 about allegations of sexual assault and rape made by a much younger female member against ‘Comrade Delta’, a senior party official. A report by Shiv Malik and Nick Cohen published by The Guardian the following March revealed that further allegations of rape have been made internally against ‘Delta’ and another senior party member.

It gets a tad embarrassing when a lightweight like Owen Jones, whose own father was once a full-time organiser in Militant, speculated in January that “the era of the SWP and its kind is over.” (If you’ve never heard of Owen Jones – likely – you’ll be thrilled to know that leaders of the Left Foot Forward blog voted him as the most influential left wing thinker of 2011.

Durham Miners Association will be holding a party with comedians and bands when Thatcher is cremated next week. General secretary David Hopper said: ‘We will have a hell of a time. We are going to enjoy ourselves. There will be a lot of men wanting to have a drink and celebrate.’

Have you ever heard of anything so pathetic?! They blame the decline of their mining villages on Thatcher even thirty years on. They have shown no guts and no chutzpah. They never took Norman Tebbit’s tip to “get on their bikes”. Their bitterness is hilarious.

Last word to Conservative MP Conor Burns, who visited Lady Thatcher weekly until she was taken to hospital recently, who said he was ‘delighted’ at the anti-Thatcher street parties.

‘The hatred that burns in their hearts against Margaret Thatcher is an enormous tribute to her. They hate her because she won,’ he said.

The Bournemouth West MP revealed Lady Thatcher did not mind being loathed even at the end of her life. He said: ‘I remember telling her last year about the TUC selling the Thatcher death party packs. She said that the fact that they still felt so strongly about her more than 20 years after she left Downing Street was a tribute to the fact that she had done something in politics, rather than simply been someone in politics.’
