Maggie! (For class tomorrow)

By special request, we're going to discuss the legacy of former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Like a lot of working class and northern or celtic-heritage Britons, I have extremely mixed feelings about her.

She stood up for democracy against the Argentinian Junta, the Soviets and the PIRA, but gutted the industries and communities of the north of England, Scotland and Wales.

And a little of the appropriate sound track, just for good measure...
