When Saddam was murdered, the mainstream media broadcast it and showed the celebrations in Iraq and amongst the Iraqi diaspora. When Gaddafi was murdered, shots of his dead face were across all media platforms and a feature on the edgware road showed how much he was hated by large sections of the British Arab community.
Today, when Thatcher has died from natural causes, will they go to old industrial heartlands, South Wales, the Northeast, the Northwest, etc.? Will they show the jubilation? The celebration of a death will be cast as sickening.
I predict a moralistic sound byte from Cameron, condemning those who dance on the grave of his political hero. I don’t like celebrating death, but Thatcher lived a long life and was not murdered. She could have been.
But she lived long while millions in this world are worse off because of her government, her economics, her foreign policy. She was the head of the snake that poisoned Britain. She killed community, so if communities coalesce around her death, there’s something very good in that.”
