Party - Trafalgar Square, London - When Maggie Thatcher Dies

On the first Saturday after Margaret Thatcher dies, Class War is calling a mass party to start at 6pm, in Trafalgar Square, scene of the most famous riot against her policies!

Whether or not you want to remenicse about the good old days of rioting against the poll tax, to toast old friends who fought Thatcherism, or just want to celebrate the death of the most reviled woman in Britain, we hope to see you there.

Bring your champagne, fireworks, party clothes and yourselves!

Promotional posters and stickers for this event will be available from London Class War.

When will she die?! She's a very resilient woman. Hey, maybe she's immortal, like Skeletor?

Technically it would mean John Majors son would free the world, (The Emperor's successors son - John Major Said:

Quote:
‘I am the one who will carry your legacy forward.’

The Major boy as our hero would be catastrophic - he's an ugly mo fo.

(Anyway, Luke was an authoritarian pro-centralisation bastard.)

Its a shame we have to wait for her to naturally pop her clogs. The woman deserves nothing less than a mob beating, considering how hard she made the lives of the working class. The miners especially, maybe a mining pick in the head?

Not quite as classy as Trotsky.

red n black star But hell yeah a party... A large effigy is needed and lots of petrol. red n black star

Is that wonderful time of celebration to soon be upon us? The old cow has been taken to hospital feeling faint. Let's hope it's nothing trivial.

The smart money is on Thatcher dying on Christmas Eve. Well, my money, anyway. wink

Just imagine -- blanket TV coverage about the dead old witch. Ideal for slouching in front of with a glass of port and a mince pie. 8)

Despite Thatcher's ill health (or perhaps because of

it), and with her Daughter Carol winning I'm a

celebrity, plus two musicals based on Thatcher’s life

(see http://www.maggiethatcher.com for details, ) there is a

proliferation of games and applications featuring The

iron lady.

I'm sure it will be a blast standing in the cold talking about a fucking nutcase that I was sick of talking about 25 years ago but as much as I'd love to be there I can't make it - I've got some very important paint that I've got to watch drying.

Ok, so I got my tick down fix - thanks for that, but being serious for a moment, I just don't get it. It's not that I think all this gloating is in bad taste or something, like I give a shit, but I just don't feel bitter or resentful and I'm very glad for it. She means nothing to me in the way that all politicians mean nothing to me. Start singleing them out and you are saying that some are worse than others, the natural conclusion to which would be that we should get voting for the less awful ones. Surely, we all know that it's the state and capitalism are the real problem and Thatcherism is a product of those things.
Even if I'm wrong in this it still doesn't alter my opinion that being full of bitterness would be shit for me and will give no positive results.
Anyhow, I've not actually got anything against a party but it seems like a crap way to spend my Saturday evening, so it's Doctor Who and pizza for me! Of course, if a riot was assured I'd have to reconsider - a highly gratifying leisure activity!

I see where you're coming from Webby, but for me the best aspect of the reaction in general is the sense of collective celebration from a large portion of the working class is directly linked to recognising she was a representative of the interests of capital (or the rich or the state) and not 'the nation'- and an enemy of our class/ humanity- its only partial consciousness, granted, but at least the working class recognise their enemies now and then and don't always just identify themselves with the interests of 'the national economy' or 'national pride' or whatever borgie obfuscation they're being sold.

Having said that I've seen some fucking appauling pro-thatcher stuff from working class people too "at least she kept the immigrants out", "at least she didn't let the unions bring the country to its knees" etc. Kind of regretting I drunk so much last night too. I do hope the Trafalgar party goes ahead and inspires something which builds solidarity and confidence as well as an excuse to have a nice time (though I doubt it will, and I'm not sure I'll be there)...

Yeah, fair point Wotsit, but all in all I'll stick to my position - I feel glad that it's having no real affect on me in any direction. Maybe I see that as a sort of personal victory having grown up right through her era. I was 14 in '79 and in the following few years and right up to the '90s I saw first hand how the political conditions of the time effected so many people. I mean, fuck, people all around me turned in to cartoon characters! Schoolfriends were suddenly city traders in pinstripe shirts and Porsches whilst others turned into 'radical' lefties spouting theory and wearing red star brooches, all the while looking down their noses at those awful working class neanderthals! All to a soundtrack of phony lefty profiteers such as The Clash. Fucking sickening!
Shit! Looks like I am bitter after all. Know any good therapists?!!!

Well, a good time is usually an effective therapist. . .

Just kidding Webby, Trafalgar or pizza and Dr. Who will probably tie for therapeutic value smile
