NOT AT ALL, EL..<quoted text>
Unbiased was the word I was looking for.
Sorry if I sounded patronizing...I did to myself!
G'Morning Grace....really beautiful morning here in
and I was worried I even said 'too much'!!
You put your finger on it when you said.
when such a public figure as she was ....
it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to please everyone.
She had her good points
The "whole" Northern Ireland and 'the hunger
strike subject' where young men died for Ireland..
was disastrous.. TWO ways -
from the hard line 'Maggie' took and stood by..
to the IRA trying to 'get her' in
the BRIGHTON bombings..
killing her friends & colleagues.
Some in today's papers here say,
by the course of action she decided to take,
in these times,
she only perpetuated the NI problem,
AND ... it is,[ironically] quote "because of her
dealing with the situation,
that Gerry Adams & Martin Mc.Guinness
are in 'power' today"
Having said that, she is now at rest
and those times have gone..
and many an innocent soul with them
ON EITHER SIDE..
I loved Margaret Thatcher's daughter> Carol,
she was a MOST charming, intriguing,
lovable & down to earth character on the very popular TV Programme
she won outright.
Peace be with her and her family, at this time,
[as you too.. put it so well.]
