A Limerick A Day


A statue to Margaret Thatcher in her home town was egged within hours of it being installed

In Grantham there is a statue
And people who know what to do
So quickly some folk
Lobbed shells full of yolk
At Thatcher. Do tell, was it you?

      Hidden in the voluminous hair. Why do you think she had that ridiculous style throughout her career?

      It’s the hair that gets me
      She used so much hairspray that it’s a wonder she was not crushed in the weight of it
      And I bet in a million years time the only thing that will survive is cockroaches and her perfectly preserved hair

    She looks almost saintly.
    A fine politician and one of the great leaders of the 20th century.
    Kick-started Blighty to become an economic powerhouse.
    Some country where thousands of people are prepared to risk their lives every year to get to.
    Irish people flocking there to find employment, fun and an escape from their dull lives back home don’t know how lucky they are to live in the Common Travel Area.

      ‘Irish people flocking there to find employment,’ Said the Tan who fled to Ireland to avail of better pension and cheap bedsit accommodation.

    I do understand where you’re coming from, and of course lots share that view. I might too if it was not for my own family background – South Yorkshire with a grandfather and many of his extended family working in or around Cortonwood colliery. It is still what comes to mind for me when I hear her name. It will never be forgotten or forgiven what she did to those people and those communities.

    This was meant to be @ Terry

      Thatcher closed down mines because they were uneconomic and an appalling vestige of a by-gone era that sent men deep underground to hack away at fossil fuels with their bare hands.
      By today’s political and environmental standards she was decades ahead of her time.
      South Yorkshire miners were basically pawns in Scargill’s fiefdom and they got their backsides handed to them on a plate.
      The rest of the country applauded the cops giving thick Northern flying pickets a good truncheoning.
      And Maggie’s employment legislation successfully muzzled the unions from holding Blighty to hostage – it was so good Blair didn’t change a full stop when Labour took over.
      She gave Galtieri a good hand-bagging too.
      The Paras and SAS took all their skills learned offing dopey IRA hoodlums and overan the Argie invaders within a matter of days.
      Ahead of her time.

        Blair was indeed Maggie’s true heir. never better put.
        The rest of your post provides a rather unfortunate description of your limited intellect.

      2. Kin

        No she had to finally rein in the unions and sadly for the miners rather scargill was the leading union leader
        He really was a scumbag amassed £5 million a sort of Stalin and Putin who was elected for life as chairman mao of the mining industry
        He was responsible for britains three day week and frankly if you lived in the UK in those days Margaret thatcher was a hero
        She did not get called the Iron Lady for nothing
        In life the cure can be pretty unpalatable
        I remember my father loosing his livelihood thanks to the three day week
        I can understand irelands hatred for her but she was not the Irish PM

        1. TenPin Terry

          Ireland hates her because they know she saw through Haughey’s dishonesty and fraud while Ireland was too slow to work out how he amassed so much wealth and property on a Taoiseach’s salary.
          She had Reagan by the short and curlies and relations between Blighty and Uncle Sam have never been better since that time.
          She had the measure of the EU too and didn’t undersell Britain’s importance and huge financial contributions to the budget.
          And wisely never trusted the French and Germans and as we’ve seen with their reponse to the Ukraine crisis she was spot on.
          Ahead of her time.

    A few years back, I used to enjoy swimming and was a regular at the local pool.
    I recall a friend of mine asking me my favourite stroke?
    Margaret Thatcher’s, was my reply.

    1. TenPin Terry

      Given the renowned Irish inferiority complex I’m surprised you didn’t reply crawl …
