This is the good thing about political free speech. Those with opinions most likely to disgust hold those opinions so highly that they cannot keep them in. Better he reveals his true colours soon than later. At least he is unlikely to be a sociopath like Blairfor example and pretend to be good and kind.

Jeff, dn't live in fear because of these feminist extremists md that goes for the other men. these incidents though vile are still isolated cases. The elite, the media and governments get a kick out of telling us how dangerous our lives are but they are have never been safer.

In cases like this where reporting is biased the government is often called a regime. Syria is required to fall at an human cost to ensure the eventual attack on Iran.

Modern feminism gone mad. These women portray themselves as victims but are in fact aggressors who care nothing of destroying a man and his life. Modern society and feminism has created this mess in which nutters know they can get away with and profit from the way men are portrayed as monsters.
I would suggest seperate carriages for those aged 16-60 to protect men from the witches.

Don`t trust mainstream media. These are nutcases, many who want a muslim state of tyranny. Assad is a bad lot but not as bad as these people. These are the same types who have made Libya more dangerous and poorer, the same types funded by the CIA in Afghanistan, the same types who kill those who do not agree with them.

Indeed this is mostly all talk and will only happen if the elite think it will benefit them. There is no interest in the average peron except to get their votes. I don't want to see Japan turn into my home country ith social disorder, huge gaps between rich and poor and massive personal debt. We should all encourage equality in the workplace at all times. However there is no lack of workers in Japan, there is in fact unemployment. Nothing wrong with making sure women are treated equally in all aspects but making it the norm to make more consumers is a terrible thing.

can anyone tell me where all these jobs will come from? Of course more people in the workplace means lower wages, more taxepayers and also less savings and more personal debt.
This happened in the west when this agenda was pushed by the corporations. This would not benefit the average Japanese.
The end result would be a country that resembles Europe or the US in 2 to 3 decades.

Hard to discuss these matters truthfully without upsetting those without an open mind. The people in Britain who are posting here supporting this funeral are just what Thatcher wanted. They are sheep who cannot see the orld clearly. Before Thatcher came to power Britain was poorer but political debate was common in oubs and around the dinner table. She followed policies that destroyed peoples individuality and their ability to question. It was also the start of the police state which Blair took much further and the Tories continue to do do so. The sheep think the main arguements against this pomp are cost, it is the principal. You have people in Britain in despair and heading to awful poverty while the elite and many of their fellow Brits don't understand or care. It is all dumbed down, it is 2013 and the gap between rich and poor is many times greater than 1979, so is the national and government debt. No worries though, exam results have improved yearly for the ladt 30 years so Britain is full of Einstein types and a world leader in education.

Thunderbird2- Not just the cost but the way the elite think all this pomp is fine and have no empathy with the average person.The whole system and thise in power needs to be changed and can only be done by the people.Most now are dumbed down to veggies on cheap lager, 24 hour telly and Facebook.

This type of event should not occur when some have to resort to food banks. Sort of vulgur trash you would expect from the Soviet Union during the cold war.Of course many will love the display, a bit of distraction from reality, back to the dire soaps and reality television tomorrow.

Sadly the way you think is one of the reasons we are in this mess. Come on pray, god and evil, these are things for darker times which sadly we are going back to. People do good or bad things, they have the choice but in some these choices cannot be made rationally. In my opinion Mrs Thatcher was a sociopath, these people with high intelligence can get far in the modern world of business and politics, the system is designed for them to succeed, and succeed Thatcher did as did her vile son Blair.

Thatcher was also close mates with Jimmy Saville as was Blair, spending many Xmas dinners together, all quiet about that now innit. All the real stuff is hidden, some will come out in time.

@Bass4funk, again you go bashing Liberals not realising what you are talking about. American politics is very dumbed down and this nonsense about socialism is a red herring fed to you by people like Sean Hannity, it seems you swallow without question. That is the problem, you have an agenda, you have views told to you by the tv and the media you choose to believe, Compared to America Britain is a socialist nation, have you checked the facts about the NHS,welfare and education, i guess not. Socialism is just a word like capatilism. It can be used to promote and agenda that is for it or against. Is is that simple, it is dumbed down just like your reply to my post. If you think that DPRK and Russia are socialist i think you need to do some fact checking.
The thing is i am neither liberal or anything else, i want fairness, equality and a decent wage for hardworking people. These 3 things were eroded for many by Thatcher and this continued with the policies of Blair. The mafia types are the leaders, whether from the right or left, that is why i can see almost all those who hold power are corrupt pieces of crap, in fact they are like gangsters and thieves.
Try to remove your pre conceived ideas and see what is really going on to understand why some hate Thatcher and also to see reality clearer.
falseflagsteveApr. 11, 2013 - 03:57PM JST
Typically you go on about "Liberals" something i mentioned earlier that we are seeing from Americans here. The idea that Labour are the natural enemy makes you spout the same kind of stuff as ever. Maggie was loved by the US right and was pals with Ronnie so many Americans loved her without realising why people in Britain were against her. It is much easier being a parrot than a thinker.
This type of left vs right does nothing. Thatcher, Blair, Bush, Clinton, Obama, the list goes on, none of them care about the people. Possibly a socialist society would be better for Britain than what life is like there now. I don't know, i am not one of these who goes on about left or right rubbish, i know they are all in it for themselves and Maggie knew better than anyone at the time how to divide the people. Divided people is what the leaders want, the do not want us united so they can retain their control and slavery of the average person.
falseflagsteveApr. 11, 2013 - 02:00PM JST
If you really expected that Labour would change Tory policies than you do not understand how it has worked sinc the death of John Smith. The two parties are almost the same, their aims are to stay in power and they are in league with corporations, media and bankers to do that. Since Blair Labour has had a worse record for destroying the life of the poor and low earners. Their policies were carrying on from the Conservatives before them, they do not care about people, just themselves, staying in power and becoming richer after their political career ends.
There is no democracy in Britain, you have two bad choices which will not change the way the system is working, both ways make rich richer and the poor poorer.
It is easier to get drunk and complain for them, many of whom are poorly educated and just want a piss up but it is not excusable for educated people to think about why so many feel this way and wish to behave like this. That is also lazy.

LFRA, Up to 6 million people rioting ir having street parties would be considered a small minority of the British public. Though the amount rioting and partying in streets would unliely be 10% of that 6 million figure. You may have an agenda in disliking people you consider liberal or whatever but i like to deal in the facts and my initial post has not been discredited by anyone.

JeffLee, again you show you do not get it at all. Thatcher sold of tons off social housing that was not replaced. i also know a few who bought their house but that means nothing at all. a problem you have and alo mamy Americans is this Liberal and Conservative rubbish. Neither side support anyone except themselves, they do not care about you or me. Thatcher was an extreme version of a sociopath but Blair was far worse and the sheep loved both of them for a while. that is the problem, those who believe in right and left and all that. Instead of seeing reality they see what the man on the telly or in the newspaper tells them, anything lse is a loony conspiracy theory.

@Chibachick, you should not be ashamed, you like i come from Britain but that means nothing, we are ourselves and our community wherever that may be. We should not be ashamed or pleased with what others born in our country do, it means nothing, collective responsibility is what idiots want to think about. Nobody is dancing on her grave she is noy underground yet and what people fail to see is this is not only an attack on Thatcher but on the present Tory government which seems intent on destroying more communities. It does not mean anyone has to agree with rioters or those celebrating just understanding why they are doing it and would they do that if they lead content lives now.

@Frungy; Her daughter lost her job for calling black people golliwogs and her son has been involved in shady arms deals and hiring mercenaries for a coup in Africa. They are nasty people and deserve no thought or respect from anyone.
falseflagsteveApr. 10, 2013 - 08:29PM JST
@JeffLee. Gentrifiaction has hammered and destroyed local communities and turned many into sterile "Starbucks" zones where the ex locals can work at minimum wage gated communities prevail. They may look "nice" to you and other son the outside but thus us the crap that started with Thatcher that continues to destroy the places the working man lives, Soon they will be too far from the cities to afford to commute to the well paid jobs, but it is ok, the places look nice and there are trendy cafes about.
Some people will never get what we are annoyed about.
