Margaret Thatcher – As It Happens

I waited for hours yesterday to hear Billy Bragg’s reaction to Thatcher’s death. (He’s in Calgary and slept through all the cell phone messages relaying the news.)  Not disappointed in the final word, courtesy of As It Happens.

Margaret Thatcher allowed cynicism and greed to come out from under its ugly stone and become part of my country… 

I don’t think today’s a day for celebration… the only real antidote to cynicism is activism. SO today’s not a day for celebrating, today’s a day for organizing. And to start to push back the divisive society that Margaret Thatcher created; that is her legacy.
