` Margaret Thatcher `Iron Lady' to some and destroyer of our `Public Services ' to Other's or a Great States Woman '

AceGuest News and Views says that on International Women’s Day this was one persons opinion of Margaret Thatcher post by: Anna Mikhailova.

Originally a research chemist before becoming a barrister, Margaret Hilda Thatcher, later Baroness Thatcher, was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990 and the Leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990. She was the longest-serving British Prime Minister of the 20th century and is the only woman to have held the office.

A Soviet journalist dubbed her the “Iron Lady”, a nickname that became associated with her uncompromising politics and leadership style. As Prime Minister, she implemented policies that have come to be known as Thatcherism.

“I stand before you tonight in my Red Star chiffon evening gown, my face softly made up and my fair hair gently waved, the Iron Lady of the Western world. A cold war warrior, an Amazon philistine, even a Peking plotter.

Well, am I any of these things? Yes, I am an iron lady, after all it was not a bad thing to be an iron duke, yes if that’s how they wish to interpret my defence of values and freedoms fundamental to our way of life.

But I happen to believe that what is at stake is important and is crucial to our future both in this country and in the world as a whole. We’re waging a battle on many fronts. We must not forget the guns and missiles aimed at us—but equally we must not let them blind us to the insidious war on words, which is going on. It is not just a matter of hurling insults—where he who hurls loudest, hurls last— that is the final resort of the man who has already lost the argument.

No, this is not such a war. The war is a true war of words, where meanings get lost in a mist of revolutionary fantasy; where accuracy is slipped quietly under the carpet; and where truth is twisted and bent to suit the latest propagandist line.

That is what we are up against. And we have to fight it if only because we find it totally alien to our notions of freedom and truth.”

http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/2013/11/06/anonymous-protest-russell-brand-joins-uk-austerity-cuts-march/

Russell Brand joins Anonymous movement officially
Fireworks are thrown at Buckingham Palace and bottles hurled at police during protests over issues including political corruption.
This is Russell Brand here speaking about Politics and corporate greed, I blogged it, but here is the video

Austerity cuts (Public Spending) in the UK are being implemented, Russell Brand, very famous here, demanded a revolution. He is an ex Heroin Addict who is now a very clever lad, actor and does radio, now he has taken to politics, and many love this lad. What you will see here and read here is what happens in the UK when the Government piss the people off. There is a demonstration in Edinburgh planned for next week, I will be there with my Anonymous mask (Joking, 😉 ) I think the Government have done good things, but they are cutting crucial spending on the UK people. We say FUCK YOU and we will take to the streets till the Government change their minds. This is how we work. American people please take note. This is how VERY EASY it is to protest when your Government does not work for you. The people protesting have lost nothing, they are protesting for the people who have. The police NOT having guns make sure we can demonstrate, just saying!

Viva La Revolution!

Comedian Russell Brand joined hundreds of masked Anonymous protesters in central London as part of a worldwide demonstration against austerity cuts.

Fireworks were reportedly thrown towards Buckingham Palace and a fire was started next to the nearby Victoria Memorial, while some of those present clashed with police.

Glass bottles were flung at officers during the disorder and 11 people were arrested, nine for public order offences and two for criminal damage.

Police in riot gear tried to shepherd the crowd, who also gathered in Parliament Square as part of the pre-arranged Anonymous Million Mask March.

A number of similar demonstrations took place in cities in Japan, Australia, and New Zealand in opposition to austerity cuts, corruption and an increase in state surveillance.

Brand was pictured alongside fellow protesters in London, wearing one of the trademark masks adopted by hacktivist group Anonymous.

He later wrote on his Twitter page: “Whatever party they claim to represent in the day, at night they show their true colours and all go to the same party #MillionMaskMarch.”

Brand’s comments follow an appearance on Newsnight and a guest editorship of the New Statesman in which he called for a “total revolution of consciousness and our entire social, political and economic system”.

Others involved in the London demonstration accused the police of heavy-handed tactics.

Ceylan Hassan, 24, a university graduate, said: “They started shouting move back, move back, but we had nowhere to go. The police started pushing us, screaming ‘move back, move back’.

“There was a fire on the right hand side of the monument and people started throwing things.”

Protesters were moved back away from Buckingham Palace as the atmosphere grew tense.

Some of those involved in the march were seen ripping barriers from the side of the road.

Sean Roesner, 21, a self-employed computer programmer at the protest, said: “We turned up and the protest was at Buckingham Palace. When we arrived people were firing fireworks at the palace.

“It was funny. I didn’t have any but I would have fired some if I had.

“I joined Anonymous because I was arrested under the Computer Misuse Act. I spent eight months on police bail last year and had done nothing wrong.

“We are here to stand up for what we believe in, to make the world a better place.”

Mr Roesner said his friend had been among a group of people encircled by the police on The Mall.
