Moggy Thatcher dead, Conservatives mourn
Debater

You naughty boy - I thought at first it might be Margaret Thatcher herself who had died, but I wondered why there were so few replies.

I think she recently turned 85.  She has met with Conservative leader David Cameron a few times this fall apparently.

If she stays around for another 6 months she will probably live to see the re-emergence of the Conservative party in the UK.

Quote:
It eventually reached the ears of Mr. Harper, or someone close to him. Harper aide Dimitri Soudas, back in Ottawa, was dispatched to confirm the news and start preparing an official statement mourning the death of the Iron Lady, an icon to many in Harper's Conservative party.

Mr. Soudas immediately e-mailed his contacts at Buckingham Palace and in British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's office.

They had no idea what he was talking about. Lady Thatcher, they informed an embarrassed Mr. Soudas, was still very much alive.

Mr. Soudas is said to have quipped since: “If the cat wasn't dead, I'd have killed it by now.”

This is way too funny to be true. But apparently it's true. Laughing

This is a gigantic coverup. The real story here is that Baird murdered his cat in a fit of pique.

I personally plan to mourn Lady Thatcher's passing when it does happen. Are you allowed to call a death "untimely" if it happens too late?

From here on, we shall not wish death on other babblers, we shall not wish death upon or openly celebrate the deaths of people by catagory.  (that means if Rush Limbaugh chokes on a chicken bone we may collectively snicker, but not at some random group like soldiers who are sucked in through some back door draft and in the wrong place at the wrong time.) We shall not wish death upon FN leaders involved in a stupid sports event, political ramafications aside.

Bwahahahaha. Very good, Unionist.

In fact, we'll be certain to do that now.

Unionist

Thanks for the appreciative comment, SparkyOne. I wished death on no one, but your quote makes it clear that if I were to pray for Maggie Thatcher to choke on one of the kittens she eats daily, I would still be well within the moderator's dictum. What I have to be careful about is wishing death on all war criminals collectively, I guess.

 

SparkyOne

Unionist don't be silly.

You know very well you can say whatever you want here on Rabble and you'll never get banned Innocent

 

I was very impressed with what Oldgoat said and I think it is a very good rule. We should not wish death on any human being whether in a direct manner or a wink wink nudge nude way.

You live by your code, I'll live by mine. Between the two of them, I would much prefer that the feline namesake had lived on. I love cats, and they are rarely guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Lady Thatcher's memory will be scorned by decent human beings after her untimely passing.

I am so disappointed. I thought I had one more grave to dance upon.

They never die. They bury all conservatives at the pet sematary where they rest up a while before being brought back to life on Hallow's eve by Chucky the plastic Good Guy doll. Or something like that.

Fidel that is scary.
Zombie Conservatives.

I've been pondering this "quip", and I've decided that I wish Soudas were dead as well as Thatcher.

That's right. Only morbid humourless people get banned from this place.

There is a historical counterpoint to this story.

Stephane Dion killed Kyoto.

Not his dog, Kyoto, who is apparently still alive.

As Environment Minister, he killed any chance of meeting the carbon reduction targets in the Kyoto Protocol.

Doug

Maybe he'll adopt a cat named Copenhagen. It'll be sleepy and not do much.

I wonder what would happen if people other than Unionost called for a person's death here

Enough of the drift, what we really want to know is how Maggie the Moggy is being disposed of: internment, cremation, skinned to be a tea cosy or posed by a taxidermist? How come we never get answers to the really important questions?

Doug

Perhaps John Baird had a dinner party.

Hmmm what goes good with moggy, a malbec perhaps?

Unionist

Can I wish for life in prison with no chance of parole for Maggie Thatcher - and no snacking on kittens (I know, I know, Amnesty would look askance at that...)?

Jaku, your main problem on this board is how unutterably boring you are.

I haven't even called for anyone's death. You, on the other hand, support and praise the mass-murdering Israeli state. Check out ebay. They've got deep-discount deals on mirrors.

Because that question was answered [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWWg5shNWR4]long ago[/url]: "We can burn her, bury her, or dump her."

Unionist I may be boring but at least Im civil.

Thank you Sparky, I consistently impress myself.

 

However, please don't misrepresent what I said. I said (to paraphrase) one mustn't call for the death of another babbler, and one mustn't call for the death of people by catagory. Look at what I said about Rush Limbaugh. Lordy, you should have been around here when the Pope was gasping his last!

oldgoat

I should add....You can't call for a person's death in any manner here which would be contrary to the criminal code.  You can enjoy a degree of merriment with the speculation of someones death I suppose, subject to some degree of community standards.  By that I mean that if it is done in a way which was baiting you would be censored.

Personally I try to govern myself with the principle "WWGD" what would Ghandi do.  I try, but I'm not always going to succeed. F'rinstance I'm not calling for Dick Cheney's death.  That would be wrong.  Doesn't mean I don't have a nice sparkling wine on chill just in the event...

There is a photo of the late Thatcher in this article. She seems more cuddly than her namesake.

Ooohhh, a tabby.  Gorgeous.

I find myself wishing that Moggy were still among us.

I completely forgot about this thread, although it was cute at the time.  But this is hysterical:

I read this out loud to RR a few minutes ago and we were rendered temporarily helpless. :D

My Renzo (black) is older than Thatcher (tabby, striped) was. He seems to have perked up with the spring sunshine, but it is only a matter of time. Renzo is my favourite being in the entire world.

The human Thatcher destroyed many lives. Yes, it is in poor taste to celebrate the demise of an old person with dementia, who, like Reagan, no longer remembered the evil she had done, but it is understandable.

Brachina

I heard about the real thatchers death and then started reading this thread without looking at the dates of the first post.

Boy was I confused.

Michelle

Ha!  :)

I'd never celebrate the demise of MOGGY Thatcher. I love cats.

Did you know Margaret Thatcher defeated the USSR? I thought Gorbachev tore down that wall. Silly me.

The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.

So let it be with Thatcher. The noble Socialist has told your Thatcher was ambtious and if it were so greivoulsy offers suffered at her hands, for Thatcher was an honorable dame (ryhymes with man); with apologies to Bil Shakespere, Laughing

Margaret Thatcher was a conviction politician who got it wrong: Mallick

We remember her this way, in flaming Tory blue suits, pearls and a meringue of pale hair, leaving behind her devastation and fury. It was mesmerizing.

Thatcher fell because power went to her regal head, as it always does. Imagine demanding a poll tax, the same amount to be paid by garbage collectors as by dukes. Imagine forgetting whence you came.

Ken Livingstone, former London mayor and a thorn in Thatcher’s side, summed up her legacy crisply: “She created today’s housing crisis. She created the banking crisis. And she created the benefits crisis. It was her government that started putting people on incapacity benefit rather than register them as unemployed ... In actual fact, every real problem we face today is the legacy of the fact that she was fundamentally wrong.”

See? Somebody appreciates my humour! I miss Michelle and some others in this thread. Though not the Zionist trolls who tried, and obviously failed, to suck all possible merriment out of the conversation.

Not sure what the Iron Lady had to do with any of that, but there's two surefire ways to take down a wall.  One way is to blow a horn as with the case of Joshua, and with Reagan, it was his mind that was blown.
