I also think she played a pretty big role in setting us on a course of free market fundamentalism which has helped to get the world into the unholy mess it’s in now.

Oh, it’ll 100% be the fault of the foreigns.

Her and Reagan, pretty much. AFAIK, Thatcher’s government also started selling off council housing under the right to buy campaign, which in itself, was a good idea, until it transpired that they banned councils from building their own council homes as replacements in subsequent years, which as you said, has helped to get the world into this free market fundamentalism, trickle down bollocks.

Yeah and the son of her housing minister at the time now lives in the Caribbean off the profits of the 40 council houses he bought in Kensington for fuck all that are worth tens of millions now. Absolute rotters. How could the housing ministers son possibly purchase 40 council homes? So fucked

FFS, that’s a mess.

Shocking innit. Great for the people who sold their council homes in London and got a pile in Essex or Kent but the ladder has been well and truly pulled up after them.

Haven’t seen anything like that (thank god) but I have had a guy cover his mouth with his hand and shout “I couldn’t give a fuuuuuuuuuuuck” while the top boss was speaking, forgetting he wasn’t muted.
And there’s a guy who never contributes a word but regularly sleeps through big chunks of meetings, like your Dad after Christmas Dinner watching TV.
