Actually, Christopher Hill seems quite moderate in retrospect

Posted by
Having mocked Christopher Hill for his reaction to Mrs Thatcher's resignation, I find that he was actually moderate compared to some responses today.   Reports on the blog of that right-on source of all world truth, The Guardian, describe scenes of widespread celebration at the death of a frail old lady..  The geographical locations are entirely predictable: Brixton and Glasgow (Warning: this links to scenes of explicit childishness).  It is good to be reminded of the tasteless depths to which emotionally stunted human depravity can stoop. Mrs T died today; intelligent political discourse appears to have kicked the bucket some time ago.

I particularly appreciated the comments of  one Mr. Clive Barger who had treated himself to a day's holiday in order to mark the passing of "one of the vilest abominations of social and economic history".   So true, so true.  Compared to Thatcher the Snatcher of free school milk, Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Attila the Hun, Genghiz Khan and good old Vlad Tepes, known to his friends and loved ones simply as 'the Impaler", look like extras from 'Touched by an Angel'.

Mr. Barger is described as "an adult education tutor."  It is unclear how the writer of the article wants us to understand "education" in this statement.  Or "adult" for that matter.  Still, he is apparently 62 years old.
