I have sat listening to the news about Thatcher this evening. I have heard many of her famous sound bites…….
“You turn if you want to”
“The Lady’s not for turning”
”Where there is despair let there be hope”
…….which today sound so totally condescending.
She was a great exponent of the saying:-
Political speak is designed to make lies sound truthful, murder respectable and to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind.
I won’t weep at her passing, but I will weep for the mothers who cried for their children that they struggled to feed when thousands of workers were tossed on to the scrap heap of life in the interests of making more money.
