I watched Martin Durkin’s documentary “Margaret – Death of a Revolutionary” shown on Channel 4 on Saturday. The title intrigued me, could this be right? have I been wrong all along, did Maggie actually have my (our) best interests at heart, was she being cruel to be kind or just plain cruel as I have thought all along, the synopsis for the program reads as follows:
“Martin Durkin’s controversial thesis is that Margaret Thatcher was a working class revolutionary. She believed that capitalism was in the interests of ordinary people, not the toffs. Many ordinary people agreed. And that is why the left hated her so much – Margaret Thatcher stole the working class.”
Sounds good I thought, I might learn something here, one hour and eleven minutes later, not only were my views not changed at all but, my mind was made up, she was still a hideous creature that should have been killed a long time ago.
The programme opened with some anti Thatcher views from both ends of the social spectrum Stephen Fry from the upper class, and Elvis Costello, from the working class giving an excerpt from his “Tramp The Dirt Down” song, then Mr Durkin tried to win us over by telling us she was just an ordinary working class girl from Grantham who gained a scholarship to Oxford, and then it started, the sycophantic rantings from all and sundry, Cecil Parkinson, Norman Tebbit, David Cameron, Bernard Ingham and the loathsome Kelvin MacKenzie, we’ll get round to that cunt later believe me.
Tales of how she was loathed by the stalwarts of the 1970’s Tory party for not being one of them and also a woman to boot, the audacity of the woman, this I believe was thrown in to try and get us “real” working class to show a bit of sympathy, not working Martin, a deluge of comments of how wonderful she was poured from the screen, until the introduction of Neil Kinnock, her opposition rival, now we’re going to hear some truths, I thought, how wrong I was, he relayed tales of what a strong willed woman she was and how she loved to debate and argue the point with her fellow “Honourable” colleagues, honourable what a crock of shit, if there ever was a word to describe a politician honourable ain’t one of them, but I digress, he continued to pour out a bunch of nothing until his last question which was, “Do you thing Mrs Thatcher’s policies were right and did they benefit the country?” his reply, after a few pauses was, thankfully “No”, at last Neil, Jesus, get a spine you fucking coward. Polly Toynbee’s contribution to the nays lasted all of two and a half minutes, that concluded the against comments, poor journalism to say the least, at least make an attempt to get all views, this is backed up by the fact that there were no comments from Miners, Steel Workers, or Dockers regarding the way their communities were raped by this abhorrent scab of a woman, no comments from ANY Scottish people, who’s entire country was ignored and then subsequently used as a testing ground for her loathsome Poll Tax, in fact the whole documentary focused on middle England, middle England’s middle class to be precise any one living north of the Watford gap could fuck off, their opinions would not be counted.
Now, enter Kelvin MacKenzie, remember this fucking piece of shit, the very person who attacked the Liverpool supporters after Hillsborough reporting that they were picking the pockets of the people as they lay dying, and hiding any evidence to the contrary, plus his heinous attacks on Scotland and the Scottish people, for no apparent reason other than we (I’m Scottish) did not agree with his beloved Tory parties policies or vote for his beloved Tory party at ANY election. This fat lying money grabbing piece of shit went on to praise everything that Thatcher did regardless of whether it was right or wrong, I swear when he smiled I caught a glimpse of brown stains of Thatcher’s shit on his tongue after licking it clean for all those years, this cunt really has to die, the quicker the better he is nothing more than pond scum that has lied and cheated his way into money.
There was also nothing repoted on the Poll Tax and the subsequent riots that brought her downfall, they did try and say the it was the Tory wets, the back benchers that came from money and didn’t agree with her policies that got rid of her but, truth be told it was us, the normal working class people of Britain, normal people sick and tired of her stealing money from us, oh, that and wrecking half of Central London in the process…. happy day, her party recognised that the people were sick and tired of that shit and didn’t want to be pushed out of Parliament by the people so they pushed her out to secure power.
And to finish off this blatant piece of Tory propaganda we went back to all the old Tories regaling us with all the stories of how she transformed this country and how Britain would have been destroyed by the Labour party and the Unions, blah blah blah.
What she actually did was create a free market to allow the rich to get richer and the poor get poorer and also chained into the system, if we owned something we would be less likely to fight back with the fear of losing it, giving her cart blanche to do what she wanted to. What she did was destroy any manufacturing industry we had and the communities that relied on them, her excuse for this: “I won’t be responsible for bailing out any non profit making industries, we must protect the wealth makers and not the wealth breakers”, 30 years or so on and what happened? we bailed out non profit making banks, who owns the banks? the fucking wealthy, how convenient. What she did was create the biggest North/South divide since God knows when and the biggest gap between the class system ever. What she did was bring working class brother to fight working class brother all in the name of greed and selfishness. What she ultimately did was create the grim future that our children all face, yes, they may now have the right to buy a house but at what price? few young people can afford the fucking deposit let alone the huge mortgages they have to take out, so we have inadvertently came full circle, no better off than we were before this so called “Working Class Revolutionary” came into power.
I still hate Thatcher.
I hate what she did to this Country, I hate the people she made, the Yuppies, and all the big city dealers.
I hate the way she turned the working class against each other.
I hate the way she destroyed our industries without shedding a tear.
I hate the lying, the deceit and the war that she created in order to stay in power.
I hate her for the needless deaths that occurred during her governance.
I hated hearing her voice, and seeing her face, and I will continue to hate her until the day I die, finally I hate what she turned me into, I would never wish death on anyone, but what she did to this country is inexcusable and I am unapologetic for the hatred towards this woman that I have vented since 1979. I am grateful for only one thing, I lived to see her die, this gives me an inordinate amount of pleasure and look forward to the funeral so I can vent some more venom her way.
Rot in Hell.
‘Till the next time………
Anarchy, Peace, Freedom, Equality
