Comments on: Margaret Thatcher, an enlarger of British freedom http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/04/08/margaret-thatcher-an-enlarger-of-british-freedom/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: BaronKazoo http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/04/08/margaret-thatcher-an-enlarger-of-british-freedom/#comment-71960 Thu, 11 Apr 2013 09:40:29 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=19417#comment-71960 Wow. An insult followed by a mad rant. Must be time for a joke. This one has been doing the rounds here in the UK: “Just seen the plans for Thatcher’s grave, it’s okay but I thought the dance floor would be bigger.” which I think we’ve probably heard before (insert name of choice) then i found this one on a comments thread (that people actually use): “To all those here complaining about commenters showing cruelty and lacking compassion- it’s what she would have wanted.” Which actually got a laugh from me.
It’s perhaps worth noting that while the elites and the media are keen to be seen to comport themselves in a proper way those who suffered from her policies in the UK have been partying since monday, in the streets, in pubs and at home in private.

Thatcher was not a leader who brought the country together.

Unfortunately, you disgraced your country and your former prime Minister, by uttering racism comments to Chinese Americans in your recent publication in thedailybeast “The Persecution of Ping Fu”.

In your paper, you called Ms. Lin, the Chinese American who gave the Fu Ping’s book with negative reviews as “Male, female, or hermaphrodite”.
You called or hinted that the Chinese Americans (who questioned the truthfulness of Ping’s memoir) as “the commentators hired by the Chinese government or Communist Party to steer a discussion away from anti-party content.” “army” of assailants, army of Chinese bloggers, hate campaign is organized by Chinese-Americans, “proud of their country of origin, or by bloggers in China, acting on their own or encouraged by party and government”
However, you make these assertions without providing any evidence.
It’s been about two month, you have not make any public announcement either you stand by your statement, or you apologize for this accusation without evidence.
