Here’s something you won’t see on the mainstream news, or television. Hundreds of people gathered in Trafalgar Square in London yesterday to celebrate Margaret Thatcher’s Death Party.
The reason you won’t see or hear coverage of the event is because ALL mainstream news is controlled by governments today. Our own is controlled by an unwritten rule of an “exchange of information”. If major news networks report unfavorable stories, their “inside” sources will dry up, and they would have to return to the old way of getting information, hard work. Of course that might produce facts, and we couldn’t have that.
In the case of Thatcher, government officials who had to deal with her when she was Prime Minister generally praised her. What was minimally reported was the celebration by the working class in England. Among others, signs were held asking everyone to sing along with “ding, dong, the ‘bitch’ is dead”.
Thatcher and Ronald Reagan were good friends and agreed on most issues of how to govern. One thing they shared, why Reagan too is remembered with malice by working men and women, they waged war on the working class. The mistakenly shared a belief in “trickle-down economics”, which has, and never could be successful.
Former miner Dave Douglas from Newcastle, part of the delegation from the miners’ union, said Lady Thatcher was a “terrible woman”.
He said: “We’re absolutely furious at this image that is being presented on television, that the whole country is in mourning.
“In the north of England, in Scotland, Wales and the Midlands, people are celebrating the fact she’s gone because we don’t support what she did to our community, our industry and our unions.”
People in the square were drinking cider and champagne, while waving sparklers and using noisemakers.
Mr. Reynolds, who lost his job as a Daily Express union official during Lady Thatcher’s time in power, added: “I don’t want to see any violence at all tonight.
“What causes the violence is youngsters, who don’t even know what it’s all about, drinking and treating it as a night out.
“But it’s not. We’re here to protest about what she’s done and the misery she caused in the country, especially for the miners.”
16 people were arrested, most for being “drunk and disorderly”.
The Bishop of Grantham has branded the decision to give Baroness Thatcher a ceremonial funeral with full military honours a “mistake”.
He is fearful of protests creating difficulty for police.
One protester, drinking from a mug that read “I still hate Thatcher”, said the event – initially planned by now defunct anarchist group Class War, had been years in the planning.
The 49-year-old, who gave his name only as Steve, said: “I was here during the Poll Tax riot in the 1990s.”
Under Thatcher’s policies unemployment rose as high as 3,000,000, and a rate of 10%, while inflation rose to 26%, and her approval rating reached a low of 23%.
Fergus Ray Murray, 34, from north London, made an effigy of Lady Thatcher from recycled materials, which was cheered as he carried it through the crowds.
He said: “It’s a chance to lay her to rest as much as possible.”
