The elephant in the room

I was asked: "Why don't you do a few posts dealing with this week's big news event?" The answer, frankly, is that there is nothing I could say about the bitch that wouldn't be ungracious, divisive and ultimately futile: she's been gone a long time and we're still living with her legacy of hard-faced men doing well out of the recession.

Yes, that's what I said to a friend who remarked that the Baroness was a "better man" than most of today's plonkers.
I'm not sure we are still friends...

She's dead. What she left us with is still killing us.

I can't believe their making this like another royal funeral - do none of them remember how utterly devisive she was? If the opposition to it got organised they could put a lone TV set in each town square during the ceremony and all stand solemnly facing away from it, like the ex-Burma Railway POWs used to do when the Japanese president paid us a visit.
