FBS of Dronfield, (October 20), wishing Terry Palmer to do the honourable thing and apologise to a certain great lady for writing for her, “ to continue burning in hell”.
A certain great lady who was a staunch supporter of many of the world’s most brutal regimes, propping and arming war criminals and despots in service to western imperialism, anti-communism and neo liberal hegemony.
She was a close friend of General Pinochet of Chile.
A certain great lady who backed Iraq during its war with Iran by supplying weapons and equipment to Saddam Hussein in contravention to both international law and policy all the way up to Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990.
She even sent Christmas cards to the Iraqi dictator and Libyan leader Colonel Gadaffi.
A certain great lady who knew about sex abuse claims against Cyril Smith, but turned a blind eye and allowed him to receive a knighthood.
She invited Jimmy Savile round to tea at 10 Downing Street and pressed for him to be knighted in 1986, despite repeated warnings of his behaviour.
A certain great lady who died in 2013, has been voted the worst Prime Minister in 100 years in the Historical Writers Association vote for “Destroying too many good things and created too many bad ones”.
May Margaret Thatcher continue burning in hell.
