    Your jesting surely.
    Hating people because of their colour is wrong. And it doesn't matter which colour does the hating. It's just plain wrong.

    Signed - Was gonna type "Over my dead body" but the way this country is going it would be all too true very soon!

    There are many, many more worthy people than Snatcher, why aren't they being recognised? Newton, Bell, Shakespeare......they only time they (have been/will get) recognised is on a postage stamp! Then again, Snatcher on a postage stamp will give many people the opportunity to kiss her goodbye and thump her flat

    Maybe you'd rather have a Harold Wilson day or James Callaghan day. Maybe even a Tony Blair day or even Gordon Brown day although I don't honestly think any of them would be considered worthy of anything except how not to run a country.

    What ever they call it it's still going to be the August Bank holiday.
    Can anyone remember 'Coat-a-sheep-in-raspberry-jam' week? Didn't think so.

    Maybe the day shouldnt be named after ANY politician. That would suit me just fine. I cant see this bill going through at all....

    What sould we do on Iron Ladyday? Apart from just rejoice rejoice!

    How about we all go to a Thatcher supper, where a guy dressed up as Ben Elton presents the immortal memory of "Fatcha?"

    Then a policeman delivers the Toast to the Miners and we burn a model of HMS Sheffield.

    we can all have a laugh but the HMS Sheffield "joke" is in extremely bad taste! 20 crew lost their lives in the attack.

    Would sinking an effigy of the Belgrano be more appropriate ?
