Maggie the movie

I heard the old chant: ‘Maggie, Maggie Maggie.  Out, out out!’  It appears people have been demonstrating outside the cinemas when the Thatcher movie is showing.  I am not sure if the chants are ironic, or perhaps it is some kind of collective memory trip.  Speaking to people in Merseyside, it seems to me that quite a few are very uncharitable towards Maggie.  Some have said they wouldn’t watch the film.  Others have suggested that they will – just to see her looking frail and old.  Not kind.

    I would disagree. The fact that they were ‘her’ Governments policies should mean that although she was not exclusively to blame, she was ulitimately to blame. Also, defining her a ‘person’ should be done in the loosest of terms as not offend other persons…
