A frail 87 year old grandmother and widow, suffering very bad health problems following creeping dementia, finally suffered a stroke and died.
Her death triggered a small minority of very scummy people to go out and celebrate. Not celebrate her life, but celebrate her death. Drunkenly roaming the streets of Liverpool, letting off fireworks, kicking over bins, banging intimidatingly on passing cars, shouting “The witch is dead”.
This is not the way to behave when somebody dies, surely?
Apparently it’s ok to behave like that in Liverpool, where a few hundred or so young scummy yobs took over the streets the night that Margaret Thatcher died.
The bizarre thing about this drunken mob was that most of them were children or not even born during the 11 years that Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister, being voted back in 3 times. However, as I have reported before, most Liverpudlians are stuck in the past and blame Margaret Thatcher for everything and anything.
Margaret Thatcher stopped being Prime Minister 23 years ago. During that 23 years we had 13 years of Labour government. Strangely, the early years of rule by Tony Blair were far more ‘Thatcherite’ than the Thatcher years. Yet, the focus is never on why the 13 years of Labour, which are supposedly the only party that Liverpudlians are allowed to support, never spent any of that time trying to undo any of the bits of the Thatcher years that all the yobs scream and shout about.
And the people of Liverpool wonder why the rest of the world looks at them with disgust!
