Occupy This

"The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." Margaret Thatcher

Hear, hear...despite her autocratic rule, better monetary sense than the "pseudo-egalitarian" fools that followed her.

She was a bitch, but rather than get into any debate about what she did with this country, I'll leave you with a joke...

The Pope and Margaret Thatcher are on the same stage in front of a huge crowd.

The ex-PM and His Holiness, however, have seen it all before, so to make it a little more interesting, Maggie says to the Pope, "did you know that, with just one little wave of my hand, I can make every Conservative in the crowd go wild?"

He doubts it, so she shows him. Sure enough, the wave elicits rapture and cheering from every Conservative in the crowd. Gradually, the cheering subsides.

The Pope, not wanting to be out done by such a level of arrogance, considers what he could do. "That was impressive, but did you know that, with just one little wave of my hand, I can make every person in the crowd go crazy with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, like that of your subjects, but will go deep into their hearts and they will forever speak of this day and rejoice."

Thatcher seriously doubts this and says so. "One little wave of your hand and all people will rejoice forever? Show me."

So the Pope punched her.

LW I am shocked and dismayed at your conduct.

I hereby ban you to trade 4 decimal point products for the rest of your life.

I assume you are so very sad your currency is not the euro then??

Did I mention shame on you?

Yes I did.

Boo Hiss Boo Hiss

Please watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail and listen to the nasty Frenchman hurl insults at the English.

That's all.

You're dismissed.

DT what kind of a person would make farm animal noises on a blog of this stature.

For you a haughty tut tut.

Your penance is listening to American Woman by The Guess Who 100times in a row.

That's all.

You're dismissed.

You'll be pleased to know, if these few minutes of Youtube video are insufficient, that they are planning a film of Margaret Thatcher's life.

The project is currently on hold though as they want to wait until she dies to ensure a happy ending.

PS DT is moo-ing, rumour has it he is also trading.
