Na morte de Margaret Thatcher

As palabras do cineasta Ken Loach, un dos máximos exponhentes do cine social de protesta británico, aparecidas en The Guardian:

“Margaret Thatcher was the most divisive and destructive Prime Minister of modern times.

Mass unemployment, factory closures, communities destroyed — this is her legacy. She was a fighter and her enemy was the British working class. Her victories were aided by the politically corrupt leaders of the Labour Party and of many Trades Unions. It is because of policies begun by her that we are in this mess today.

Other prime ministers have followed her path, notably Tony Blair. She was the organ grinder, he was the monkey.

Remember she called Mandela a terrorist and took tea with the torturer and murderer Pinochet.

How should we honour her? Let’s privatise her funeral. Put it out to competitive tender and accept the cheapest bid. It’s what she’d have wanted.”
