As you most of you readers live in the North East of England, you stand about a 75% chance of hating Margaret Thatcher. Some of you may even consider hating her a matter of pride, but just how far are you willing to go to simply hate the Ironing Lady? (That was wrong on purpose.)
Enter Tosh McDonald, a union leader so left-wing that you could use him as a prosthetic for an albatross. According to a news story from the Mirror in September this year, he used to set his alarm clock an hour earlier than he needed “just so that he could hate her [Thatcher] some more” back when she was still Prime Minister. He also said that he doesn’t do that any longer given she’s dead, so he knows where to draw the line.
Tosh didn’t say anything about staying up later to hate Theresa May for an extra hour, so there’s something she can put on her CV when she pops down the Jobcentre if she carries on with the utter shambles that is literally everything she’s doing like good grief.
Come to think of it, this story really reminded me on May’s request for a “kinder, gentler politics” that neither side seems to have taken to heart. The left has an irresponsibly large number of angry voices that clamour for unspeakable things to happen to the opposition, while the right is perfectly happy to sit back and allow the UK to be listed as a “humanitarian crisis” by the United Nations. Personally, I think we should export both groups to a deserted island where they can duke it out in person and leave the rest of us in peace. Happy Christmas.
