'Rust in hell': Irish nationalists can't forgive Iron Lady

Apr 14, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: ABS-CBN News

Former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher's hardline approach to IRA hunger strikers and her staunch support of Unionism means few nationalists in Northern Ireland are mourning her death.

my ancestors were french huguenots, massacred by the roman catholics and chased out of France.

So, using the same thought themes as the pseudo irish communist thug murderers should we all get together and start a "war" against the French authorities. The answer of course is no, we have been brought up better than to singe our souls as those cnuts have done.

I didn't agree with a lot of things Thatcher did, but standing up to the IRA was something I certainly approved of.

Baroness Thatcher was the greatest Prime Minister the UK ever had, and anyone celebrating her death at the age of 87 is just showing that they lost.

Thatcher hadn't been significant for 23 years. That's why I don't get the big deal about a little old woman that died. Suppose I'm from a different country, no one in the ROI gives a toss.

Baroness Thatcher had been VERY significant for 23 years, which is why the Conservatives haven't won an election since 1992 after they destroyed themselves by ousting their greatest ever leader over the issue of the EU.

Labour only became electable by changing their name and adopting numerous Thatcherite policies.

She hadn't been, even her own party increasingly distanced themselves from her and her policies. She was insignificant for over two decades and ended up completely out of politics working for a tobacco company. I don't really care about the woman, I just think it distasteful that people are celebrating her death, I never do that. I have morals!!!

The IRA's got little to do with it and few Irish nationalists agreed with the bombings. Thatcher the Milk Snatcher was a murdering bitch and if there is any justice in the after life then "Rust in hell" goes well for both she and Reagan.
people do like to call Thatcher a "murderer" but for some reason can never tell us who she murdered.

would you like to tell us who she murdered FM?

That's why they lost in 1997, 20and 2005 (although the Conservatives actually got far more votes in England that time, and Labour only "won" because of Scotland).

I'd never even heard of any of the so-called Irish Prime Ministers until very recently. I'd never even heard of Eamon de Valera until 2010.

They distanced themselves from Thatcherism to get voters, particularly young voters. The 1997 election was the turning point. Thatcherism is old fashioned, an ''ideology'' of a past era.

I'm not surprised by that. I can't see why you would have heard of them.

Hardly "old fashioned" as it has continued from 1979 to the present day.

The Conservatives never recovered from ousting their greatest ever leader, just like when Labour forced out Blair in 2006.

Thatcher had left such a divisive legacy her own party abandoned her publicly. She wasn't invited to the Conservative Party Conference for several years.

Which is why they lost in 1997 and 2001, and still "lost" in 2005.
