Thatcher funeral – pomp and capitalism

The Iron Lady is still dividing the British society. The high society in the church made their tributes, not only to Mrs. Thatcher, also to the conservative message, actually splitting Europe into rich (many no-tax payers) and poor (all tax payers). On the streets there were many protesters in the UK, some demolished the letters at cinemas, featuring the latest movie about the Iron Lady. The Iron Lady was a very bad role model for many European politicians. On the bureau desk of German Iron chancellor Angela Merkel is a Thatcher portrait. I was amused by the short resume of the British photographer Charlie Colmer (below), he sub-titled his shot: “pomp and capitalism”

    I fully supported a state funeral for Thatcher, but only whilst she was in power. Once she’s dead, it’s no fun at all.


  2. Great photo Frizz.

    Did you see this from John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten –


  3. First photo I’ve seen of it!

    She was friends with President Ronald Reagan, a man whose policies caused the same thing in the US like you said it did in the UK.



    I missed this, thanks Frizz!


Hearing from you makes my day!
