We STILL Fuckin’ Hate Thatcher!

Oh how joyous it was to hear news last week that the old bag was taken ill. Sadly, she seems to have recovered, but it can’t be too long now surely? Apparently, she also has problems with her memory these days. Well, rest assured, I will NEVER forget what this hag did to me and my class. Unfortunately amnesia isn’t terminal, but I hope that she hurries up and dies in a suitably painful and lingering (but not too long) fashion.

Poll Tax Riot

In anticipation of that glorious day to come, here’s an episode of Radio 4’s ‘In Living Memory’ about a glorious day that’s already been – The Poll Tax riot in London on March 31st 1990. It includes interviews with people from both sides who were in the thick of it, as well as some of the politics underlying the whole struggle. Ian Bone (founder of street-fighting anarchist group Class War) recounts his memories of the battle, and a few old punks I know also get to say a word or ten about their take on events.

Up the proles!

  • can’t be long now can it…can it? it’ll be like V.E. day for a whole generation/class of people!
    great blog.

  • Come the time, the fizzy wine’s on me. Tick tock tick tock…

  • Wish I’d been old enough to take part in the Poll Tax riots. Wasn’t even 2 then but it still doesn’t stop me from fucking hating Thatcher. Working class pride isn’t as rare as people think in my generation, we all have it, it just takes something to bring it out and it’s not the fucking BNP. Fuck Thatcher and fuck the Fash!

  • Thanks for the comment Woody, and thanks for warming the cockles of my sometimes cynical heart with your youthful fighting spirit! And don’t worry about having missed out on the Poll Tax – I’m sure you’ll get your chance too 😉

  • Fuck the state funeral. Put a dancefloor on the old cow’s grave. Dancing shoes polished and at the ready!

  • The word hate does not even begin to express what I feel about that evil old bag. She just turns my stomach, every time her ugly mug and grating voice came on the telly I had to swear and change channels.

    She fucked the country up big time and I hated everything she stood for. I was a teenager in the 70s, before she got her grubby hands on it and it was ace, the best ever time to be growing up

    Even better idea than a dancefloor on the bag’s grave, how about a giant toilet so we can all shit on her, like she did to all of us.

  • She ripped apart whole communites, Increased the gap of rich and poor sat back watching miners trying to be brave who ended up starving and their families disintergrating stole our nationalised industries paid for by our forefathers toil and taxes she is responsible for making uk a mini version of usa look at todays kids And they called us the lost generation she should have been executed ! state funeral? if so lets brick it like we used to do the nf!

  • Sorry to dip in a year late on this one but good to see that not everyone in this country has suddenly forgotten what a wicked bitch she was. I hate all this beeb shit at the moment trying to humanise her – she was an evil evil woman and I will certainly be wiping the dust off my danicng shoes and cracking open something bubbly when she kicks the bucket! Can’t happen soon enough!

  • Robert Ridlington

    On that happy day I will be asking radio stations to play “ding dong the wicked witch is dead” from the wizard of oz. I expect my request to be granted.

  • As ‘Mock The Week’ said: Thatcher’s burial will be a man-made river…. well, it will be once we’re done pissing on it!

    FUCK THATCHER

    • joseph fitzpatrick

      Yhey better keep her grave a secret because there will be a lot of people wating to piss on it, awful evil old hag.

  • i’m 21 and proud to be a working class young lady… my dad taught me alot of things growing up and the best thing i have ever learnt is knowing what a fucking bitch thatcher is… i know most people feel the same about what she has done to OUR country, it should be taught as the truth in schools what she’s done to England

  • I’m not surprised to still see the hatred for Thatcher… I can’t think of anyone more deserving. As you may know she will be honoured with a state funeral… at the expense of the humble taxpayer. I don’t know how you feel about having to foot the bill for her funeral but Im not happy about it. If you go to the Mark Thomas Site there is a nice little letter you can send to the Queen to voice your displeasure.

    Not long now Thatcher 🙂

  • ballsacks in blue

    armando ianucci – ‘every minute that passes we’re a minute closer to magaret thatcher’s death’

    fuck her and her cold blooded politics, wont be long

    great blog

  • no way should the old bag have a state funeral she should have a public burial place though erect a urinal over her grave so we can all piss on it

  • Oh dearest Margaret,

    When will u die? Hurry up now will you, its long overdue.

  • Margaret Thatcher’s unbending stubbornness murderd ten brave men in the H-Blocks of Ireland and countless others through her evil shoot to kill policy. The place to be when the cunt dies is West Belfast. Come along and we’ll show you all how to party.

    As for the comment above hurrying it up I disagree. I hope its long drawn out and unbearably painful, just like starving to death was for the hunger strikers

    • Can’t wait to go to the party and celebrate the old bag’s demise with several pints of Guinness. Tiocfaidh ár lá!

  • DIE – BITCH

    Back in the early 80’s a joke that went around my school yard was :

    Did you hear that Thatcher was in a car crash and hit a tree and died!

    The IRA claimed they planted it 🙂

  • Dying is too good for the Tory bastard!

    What a pity the whole fucking lot of them didn’t get it in the Brighton bombing!

  • I am only 11 and I understand and have been brought up 2 hate her because she destroyed the trade union movement. When she dies we are having a party and dancing on ITS grave (you are all invited).

  • List of crimes:

    Supported the apartheid regime in South Africa, calling the ANC a bunch of terrorists and openly saying ‘God help South Africa if the blacks get into power’.

    Destroyed the mining industry that had lasted for over centaury and even privatised those nationalised industries that were profitable.

    Responsible for mass unemployment and the high interest rates crippling small business.

    Increasing the gap between rich and poor, the poll tax is just one example how to hammer down the less well off.

    Was totally against the reunification of Germany although the rest of Europe had no problem with it.

    The illegal sinking of the Belgrano, the fucking BBC tried to portray her in a drama as if she cared about the murdered Argentine sailors, just pathetic.

    Her daughter Carol and son Mark, a pair of obnoxious, arrogant racist bastards.

  • I suppose, since only the good die young, the old bitch could become a centenarian and get a letter from the Queen. Still, the day will come when her evil heart stops beating, and there will be much rejoicing. I plan on getting legless as soon as I find out the tart has kicked the bucket. Let’s hope it’s not too painless. I just hope those of us who can get to the state funeral make it a disaster to remember. Hopefully, the hearse will be close enough to spit on as it drives by.

    • Maybe spit or prefer unzip squeeze hard and piss so hard it has the hearse covered in sh1.. t
      Die hard you bitch

  • Irish question, Falklands war, poll taxes, apartheid support………………FUCK THATCHER

  • A song to be chanted at every football ground around the country on the day we will be ordered to give her a minute’s silence, party poppers, party hats, balloons all welcome as well, to the tune of ‘Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep’:

    “Woke up this morning and Thatcher was gone, ooh eeh what a fuckin treat treat, what a fuckin treat treat yeah, all together now, wheres your Thatcher going, she’s going to hell for sure, wheres your thatcher going, she’s going to hell for sure, far far below”

    Repeat, then repeat then repeat until the minute’s silence is up, plant fireworks in private gardens around the stadiums, set them off when the minute’s silence is up, and fuckin’ party, god it cant be long now.

  • At 72 I’m just hanging on till the fucking cow dies I celebrated Franco’s death in about 76 at Ruskin got pissed when South Africa became (kind of free)rolled marbles under the police horses outside South African Embassy fort the Met thugs at Grunwick I have so many invites to Thatchers dead and gone parties I will go happy with Alcohol poisoning Knowing the most evil bitch of the 20th century has burnt in hell

  • The only mass murderer not to serve time, good ridance to the old cunt.

  • lacking in calcium

    The milk snatcher is dead. My childhood dream has become a reality, the old cunt is gone. Just have to wait until Cameron karks it to get some rest.
