Margaret Thatcher: let her rest in peace

Any one who knows me and my politics will understand that I opposed almost everything that Margaret Thatcher stood for. In fact the only thing that I can think of that she did that I approved of was creating more comprehensive schools than any Education Secretary before or since. And helping get rid of the military government in Argentina.
However, this thought occurred to me while dodging the piles of dog poo on my walk to the station this morning: Would we have experienced the same levels of hatred and gut level loathing if a Michael Thatcher had been Prime Minister during the 1980’s?
We shouldn’t forget her, but let’s not waste our righteous anger on her when her successors are hell bent on destroying the foundations of the United Kingdom in a way that she would not have dared to, and without her electoral mandate.
