Anyone taking part in the riotous behaviour, or death parties we've seen deserves the moniker.

"small" correction:
these riots are stupid in the sense that they are celebrating thatchers dead and aren't riots in the sense: stop this, we have enough.

So I agree that it's stupid, but nevertheless a loud signal and maybe the "elite" reminds that if a large crowd of people stand up than it's over with their power.

It demonstrates that a large number of people are lemmings.

No: you are a moron who doesn't have the intellectual ability to examine your own prejudices.

Since we're talking about the UK, try reading this report on poverty by the Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Methodist Church, the Church of Scotland, and the United Reformed Church: Truth & Lies About Poverty.

what? He gets insulted nearly everyday... for example

That is because many Liberals are small, hate filled people.
! although he is not mentioned this is directed at him (and maybe me, but since I'm not a liberal but a protoss-zealot I'm not offended :) , btw in my environment "liberals" are capitalists and definitely not left)

Moreover you have to report at least 10 people per day for insulting somebody... And very few OTW threads are intellectual if we are honest...

yes maybe this is the right way, but if you look at the US then even BK, Muso, Old school had a hard time last vote... :lol:

I don't think they voted for Romney because they like him (if they did vote for him and if they voted for Obama then because Romney is worse)

Riots? You're talking out your ass. There were no riots.

You, and Old School, called them "lazy, stupid, drug and alcohol addled, parasites on society". It's not just the less well-off sections of society who are celebrating in the streets, but those there are, are not lazy, stupid, drug addled or parasitical. It's exactly that kind of ignorant, gobshite bigotry and disdain aimed at the poor which makes people so angry about Thatcher.

Read the report and learn something.

How moronic of you to miss the point. It's not about me; it's about some very unpleasant and manifestly incorrect prejudices about the poor.

and how do you know what it was like to be poor under Thatcher? its already been established you were not in the UK during her premiership, so this drivel you are spouting is just rhetoric which aligns with your preconceptions

Riotous behaviour - besides why are you drawing parallels with irrelevant materials ?

Income levels have nothing to do with the behaviour that we've seen. It is and remains
the product of the ill informed, lemmings that robotically follow.

You still haven't clarified the reasons for your vitriol BTW. Aside from parrot like regurgitation.

Now you're trying to backpedal. You said "riots" now you claim it was just "riotous behaviour". Translation: "I was wrong but I'm not honest enough to admit it". You'd rather continue to spread misinformation and hate. It's OK they're only scum (credit where it's due: at least you finally admitted to that one).

That's not what you said. You, and Old School, called them "lazy, stupid, drug and alcohol addled, parasites on society". This despicable prejudice towards less well-off sections of society doesn't square with the truth about poverty. Read the f*cking report.

You're a cheap liar. It's all in the thread. Go and read it.

About the baroness, the only thing I'll always remember is...

The distress of some good friends I had in Durham.

Hey mcgruff, what are some things you like about Thatcher? After all, no one is entirely evil.
