Margaret Thatcher Funeral & Trafalgar Square Party Compared

Domino Effect | 17.04.2013 08:12 | Public sector cuts

In contrast to the 2-3,000 that the BBC confirmed attended the Margaret Thatcher Death Party in Trafalgar Square, 9am 17 April the BBC are reporting "one or two" members of the public gathering to pay their respects to Margaret Thatcher on Fleet Street, and "well over a thousand" gathered around St Paul's...

In contrast to the (under-estimated) 2-3,000 that the BBC confirmed attended the Margaret Thatcher Death Party in Trafalgar Square, 8:50am 17 April the BBC are reporting "one or two" members of the public gathering to pay their respects to Margaret Thatcher on Fleet Street, and "well over a thousand" gathered around St Paul's.

So, with the millions of pounds in public resources, the hundreds, possibly thousands of hours of prime-time TV, and thousands of pages of newspaper and magazine coverage devoted to white-washing the legacy of Margaret Thatcher and to promoting public adulation at her funeral, STILL Margaret Thatcher's supporters are less numerous than the people who gathered to condemn the legacy of her divisive politics in Trafalgar Square.

No doubt the effect of the media hype will mean that, as the day goes on, the number of Margaret Thatcher's supporters will grow, but recall again the enormous media campaign required to achieve this, as opposed to the Trafalgar Square event being realised at short notice, with no formal organisation and with effectively zero resources.

Numbers, numbers, numbers.

Thats all the Tory party have ever been concerned about.

Its why they destroyed much of the countries infrastructure and abandoned much of the population to their own devices.

Its also the reason why their party membership has collapsed and in less than five years they will have to throw in the towel and declare bankruptcy. Thats if they can keep their claws off the public funds in the meantime.

That will be the ultimate test for them...they could never maintain themselves as a going concern.

This will all be over soon.


When they give you two options, always take the third.....

VID (2 mins 40 secs) LONDON Catholic Workers ain't gonna work on Maggie Thatcher's farm no more.....

Today, war criminals from Kissinger to Cheney arrive in London to bury Margaret Thatcher. A state funeral choreography celebrating the Falklands War has been planned.

London Catholic Workers gathered at Giuseppe Conlon House for our monthly liturgy and to reflect on the passing of Margaret Thatcher and the nature of ongoing Thatcherism. After the reading of Acts 6:1-7 & John 6:16-21 ,reflection by John Hamblett, remembering Thatcher's victims, the breaking of bread & the sharing of wine, John McLean led us in "Maggies Farm". We committed to further nonviolent resistance to her legacy and prayed that she receives a merciful judgement.

She recieved less than 50% of the vote at each of the three elections she won. I would not call that a majority of people

HALF A MILLION attended TUC demo, 26 March 2011

Thatcher's funeral, in context...

17.04.2013 10:58

It was that crowded it took us a good 5 minutes to find our way through into the thin crowd that was squashed behind the metal barriers onto the narrow pavement on Fleet Street today, and a good 15 minutes to find our way out again...

To put that in perspective, there were so many people it took a good 90 minutes to get INTO the demo on March 26, before the demo had even started. QED

laugh at the trolls

17.04.2013 12:26

the stupid thing about these trolls defending thatcher or bigging up the funeral is this:

in the centre of one of the biggest and busiest cities in the western world, of course thousands of people are gonna stand and watch as the roads are blocked off and cops are everywhere. it doesnt mean that all of them know what the fuck is going down or actually supported thatcher.

you could parade through the streets with a paper filled football mascots outfit in a coffin, line the streets with cops, block roads, and still thousands of people would turn out to watch.

people enjoy spectacles, doesnt mean they loved that old hag.

trolls, fuck you.

millions of people hated thatcher - get over it.

@Just loving - 250,000 did NOT line the Thatcher funeral route. There were a few thousand at best, not alot more than attended the funeral party, and well over 400,000 less than attended the TUC demo in 2011

I know right-wingers can be a bit thick, but do you really think making assertions that aren't factually accurate somehow helps your cause?

Im really happy with today. We got the military pomp, we got to symbolically silence the nations "Ding Dong", we got hundreds of our compatriots out so we look good, we got Sky, BBC and the yanks out. We got to largely shut up this nonsense about Thatcher being divisive and we even got to show a documentary about Thatcher being a working class revolutionary.

All in all a good example of our power. We can do pretty much whatever we want.

I think we can take the gloves off now. Our rule is clearly uncontested and the British middle class to weak in the head to stand in our way. The UK has now completed the transition toward the new Victorian era.

We can privatise everything now and we can get rid of the NHS. This country needs a new elite class of philanthropists who dictate the wealth of the people according to their own morality and public standards. This is the only way for US to achieve our freedoms, by imprisonment of the middle class and control by tactical charity.

Never in human history has so much wealth, being concentrated in the hands of so few, for the denial of the rights of so many.

This is freedom. Our freedom.

If this is a problem, go and vote Labour...they'll know what to do!

17.04.2013 16:36

I can definitely confirm that a good chunk of the people watching the hearse pass Whitehall and Charing X were American, Australasian, South African and European tourists etc, and that another good chunk were people who work in the thousands of offices around Fleet Street, Ludgate Circus and St Paul's. In the City part of the route, tens of thousands fill those streets even on a regular work-day. In the unlikely event the right-wing rags publish a figure for public attendances, shave a third off straight away for tourists and for office workers who just wanted an excuse to beg an hour off work



17.04.2013 16:46

Show screen captures of "no one" watching the vehicles pass is lame.
There are plenty of pictures where there are 10s of 1000s of people watching
What you are attempting to do is the equiv of quote mining. Its totally biased...... why havnt you shown any pictures where lots of people are watching? Why have you chosen to censor these pictures and just show the ones where there a nobody on short sections?


Q: "Thousands line the streets to pay their respects..."?
A: Over 400,000 LESS than marched thru London to oppose austerity, Sherlock
Bullshit. There was about 100,000 at austerity, so about the same.
Different is, the austerity march was on a saturday when most people have time to attend!
Whereas, today is wednesday, where most people don't! Forgot to mention that didnt you?

Q: "Millions more watch on television around the world"?
A: Millions watch adverts for bog-roll and air-freshener on TV
Or.......... they watched it on TV as per the original statement before you tried to inteject that all these people were doing so to watch a toilet roll advert. Utter nonsense, since when do millions of people ever turn on a tv to watch a toilet roll advert you utter muppet? Your argument is weak

So, learn difference between Wedsneday and Saturday is regard to busy and quiet times
And b, learn that people dont watch TV just to watch adverts on.

Loser - your arguments are both easily destroyed.



17.04.2013 16:59

It would help if you could construct proper sentences, and I'm certainly no less "biased" than you are, but even if there were only (as you falsely claim) "about 100,000 at austerity" (sic), even without factoring-in all today's tourists and casual sight-seers, 100,000 is still many tens of thousands more than attended Thatcher's funeral

As for your argument about the big left-wing demo being on a weekend, the reason they scheduled Thatcher's funeral for a week-day was to STOP the people who supported the big anti-austerity demos from turning up at Thatcher's funeral (think about it, Sherlock)

summary of day

17.04.2013 18:24

It looks like the protestors had a case of all-talk-no-trousers. There were barely any there. About 100? Less than a EDL demo. Of course, there was some protesters (this is a democracy and they exercised their right to protest without state intervention, unlike in some other countries the other side of the world). But, it was clear that most of the nation supported the funeral.

The prosecution rests.

"It looks like the protestors had a case of all-talk-no-trousers. There were barely any there. About 100? Less than a EDL demo. Of course, there was some protesters (this is a democracy and they exercised their right to protest without state intervention, unlike in some other countries the other side of the world). But, it was clear that most of the nation supported the funeral."

Same ole crappy same ole.

On any event in London, as soon as a crowd gather the tourists flock in to see what's going down. Most of those people standing in Whitehall would have been tourists. The tories and the BBC knew that. That always happens. You could march a pantomime chicken down the road in London and as long as you close the roads, the tourists will flock in, even though the vast majority have no idea what is happening, or why. Take the tourists away and you will have yourself a shocking amount of blank pavement.

Around St Paul's the people were actually crowded into what is a very small space. From a helicopter, it looked much larger than it actually was. Put 500 people into that tiny courtyard outside the cathedral and its going to look like a big crowd.

But its when Thatcher was driven out and away from St-Paul's that the real story was told. Nobody, absolutely nobody showed up along the pavement. There was no spontaneous display of either grief or happiness from anybody, just universal indifference. Even the very few people that were standing at bus stops and walking along the road did nothing. It was indeed a very dull, plain and unremarkable event. The only thing that really stood out on the day, was the bizaare notion that it had happened at all.

Thatcher's funeral should have been a private affair. There was no need at all for it to have been publicly funded. It should have been a private funeral attanded by friends and family at her family home or in the town of her birth. If Thatcher's children had problems raising the funds for it then freinds and family could have stumped up the cash for it.

Everybody involved in this has screwed up big time.


still not many protesters like promised

17.04.2013 19:28

Thats great at going off on a tangent, but doesn't explain why very few protestors there.

the prosecution rests (again).

clue: It was because there wasn'y any booze/partying involved.
Most "protestors" go somewhere when it is a party. Otherwise they dont bother.

17.04.2013 23:23

"Thats great at going off on a tangent, but doesn't explain why very few protestors there."

In life, Thatcher was a women who championed the private sector and independence from the state. She lionised personal responsibility over the collectivity of unionisation. Thatcher believed in claiming to pay your own way while paying nothing. Thatcher believed in each person being responsible for themselves and she believed in limiting government spending and taxation.

In death, Thatcher was a women who sponged £10,000,000 from the state for her funeral. Thatcher was a women who threw all her beliefs to the wind and reached out to the state and demanded the public pay her way. Thatcher was a women who hoovered up the trappings of state and the public purse and invited all her freinds to take one last bite of the pie, Capitalists and dictators alike. Thatcher is a women who abandoned every last idea she ever believed in, when it came to having to pay her way.

The British people do not believe in paying nothing to the state your entire working life, and then expecting the state to pick up the bill when you have no money left to pay your way.

The British people know who the real spongers and scroungers are, they don't need to be told that it is always the poor that need to be persecuted. That is just something the Conservatives and their media clones like to say.

Argue all you want, but all is naught.

You hung yourself today.

You don't know it yet, but you hung yourself today.

I am personally grateful to you for that.

In that sense, yes, the Conservative Party are true revolutionaries.

Last Word on Numbers

18.04.2013 20:50

It's not very complicated.

1. The police threatened potential protestors with pre-emptive arrests, aggressive searches and with SNIPERS

2. In addition to those very important factors, the funeral was held on a week-day when the hundreds of thousands of working left who attend the big TUC demos were, inevitably, going to be AT WORK

oh look - logic and common sense

18.04.2013 22:27

1. The police threatened potential protestors with pre-emptive arrests, aggressive searches and with SNIPERS

In other words, the protestors were wimps. Big talk one day, and then runaway scared the next? I think not. Never stopped you in the past . I think there were no protestors because they knew they'd fail.

2. In addition to those very important factors, the funeral was held on a week-day when the hundreds of thousands of working left who attend the big TUC demos were, inevitably, going to be AT WORK

Oh, and there me being told that theres no jobs and unemployment is very high because of the evil tories. What about the people without jobs? What about the students who love to skive off? What about using a day of annual leave? What about all these people who have been made redundant?

Barely 100. Not for the reasons you said. But reason that they didn't want to go despite your campaigns to get them to go for your own political agendas.

Sure, they went to the death parties (because there is booze involved - who in the world DOESN'T like a street party). If there was a street party because lots of people died, I think you'd still find lots of people go.... .because..... people like street parties. The same people DONT like protesting at a funeral.



18.04.2013 23:43

Carol Thatcher - Margaret Thatcher's love-child with Jimmy Savile
Carol Thatcher - Margaret Thatcher's love-child with Jimmy Savile

Your points, in order

1. As for "common sense", it doesn't matter how brave you or strong you are, a Metropolitan Police Heckler & Koch MP5 is still going to kill you. As for "logic", even if protestors were (as you say) "wimps" for being intimidated by ARMED COPS, that doesn't disprove the argument (the argument is not about whether people are wimps or not). So, your argument fails on both counts (please don't talk about "common sense" and "logic" until you've bothered to learn what those terms mean)

2. The comparison with the big TUC demos, refers, obviously, to Trades Union members - to be a Trades Union member you have to be in employment, it's not therefore likely you'll be free during a week-day. You swerve the obvious by asking about "the students" etc, blind to the fact that point's already been answered (see 1)

Now do fuck off

Common sense & logic

there there

19.04.2013 01:36

1. Didnt stop the other protesters from attending did it? What have they got that the rest havnt? No protesters were shot or hurt. One idiot protester tried to cause injury by throwing a bottle at a horse. armed police restrained themselves but could of took him out easily. Protester wouldnt have stood a chance but for their mercy yet protester claiming hollow victory. Not victory they LET him walk

2. Well a small town in yorkshire managed to drag a couple of thousand away from their jobs. London is much bigger why only 100? I doubt everyone apart from 100 were wotrking

3. 100 protesters is very very small. Anarchists have been plannibg this day for years. Its a big big deal, yet only 100

Now do fuck off and go back to your drivelling

Now look at the Thatcher party photos (above). Bearing in mind that figure of 12,000, does Trafalgar Square look empty to you, or does Trafalgar Square look full? Your opinion is contradicted by factual evidence.

Why Celebrate the Death of Thatcher? Ask a Chilean!

17.03.2015 01:50

Why Would Anyone Celebrate the Death of Margaret Thatcher? Ask a Chilean

Never have I witnessed a gap between the mainstream media and the public quite like the last twenty-four hours since the death of Margaret Thatcher. While both the press and President Obama were uttering tearful remembrances, thousands took to the streets of the UK and beyond to celebrate. Immediately this drew strong condemnation of what were called "death parties," described as “tasteless”, “horrible” and “beneath all human decency.” Yet if the same media praising Thatcher and appalled by the popular response would bother to ask one of the people celebrating, they might get a story that doesn't fit into their narrative, which is probably why they aren't asking at all.

I received a note this morning from a friend of a friend. She lives in the UK, although her family didn't arrive there by choice. They had to flee Chile, like thousands of others, when it was under the thumb of General Augusto Pinochet. If you don't know the details about Pinochet's blood-soaked two-decade reign, you should read about them but take care not to eat beforehand. He was a merciless overseer of torture, rapes and thousands of political executions. He had the hands and wrists of the country's greatest folk singer Victor Jara broken in front of a crowd of prisoners before killing him. He had democratically elected Socialist President Salvador Allende shot dead at his desk. His specialty was torturing people in front of their families.

As Naomi Klein has written so expertly, he then used this period of shock and slaughter to install a nationwide laboratory for neoliberal economics. If Pincohet's friend Milton Friedman had a theory about cutting food subsidies, privatizing social security, slashing wages or outlawing unions, Pinochet would apply it. The results of these experiments became political ammunition for neoliberal economists throughout the world. Seeing Chile-applied economic theory in textbooks always boggles my mind. It would be like if the American Medical Association published a textbook on the results of Dr. Josef Mengele's work in the concentration camps, without any moral judgment about how he accrued his patients.

Pinochet was the General in charge of this human rights catastrophe. He also was someone who Margaret Thatcher called a friend. She stood by the General even when he was in exile, attempting to escape justice for his crimes. As she said to Pinochet, "[Thank you] for bringing democracy to Chile."

Therefore, if I want to know why someone would celebrate the death of Baroness Thatcher, I think asking a Chilean in exile would be a great place to start. My friend of a friend took to the streets of the UK when she heard that the Iron Lady had left her mortal coil. Here is why:

I'm telling [my daughter] all about the Thatcher legacy through her mother's experience, not the media's; especially how the Thatcher government directly supported Pinochet's murderous regime, financially, via military support, even military training (which we know now, took place in Dundee University). Thousands of my people (and members of my family) were tortured and murdered under Pinochet's regime—the fascist beast who was one of Thatcher's closest allies and friend. So all you apologists/those offended [by my celebration]—you can take your moral high ground & shove it. YOU are the ones who don't understand. Those of us celebrating are the ones who suffered deeply under her dictatorship and WE are the ones who cared. We are the ones who protested. We are the humanitarians who bothered to lift a finger to help all those who suffered under her regime. I am lifting a glass of champagne to mourn, to remember and to honour all the victims of her brutal regime, here AND abroad. And to all those heroes who gave a shit enough to try to do something about it.

I should add here that I lived in Chile in 1995, when Pinochet had been deposed but was still in charge of the armed forces. I became friends with those who were tortured or had their families disappeared, so Thatcher's connection to Chile strikes a personal note with me. I also understand, however, that similar explanations for "why people are celebrating" could be made by those with connections to Argentina, apartheid South Africa, Indonesia, Belfast, Gaza or Baghdad. The case could also be made by those in the UK affected by Thatcher's Pinochet-tested economic dictates who choose not to mourn.

It also matters because the forty-eight hours after a powerful public figure dies is when the halo becomes permanently affixed to their head. When Ronald Reagan passed away, a massive right wing machine went into motion aimed at removing him from all criticism. The Democrats certainly didn't challenge this interpretation of history and now according to polls, people under 25 would elect Reagan over President Obama, even though Reagan's ideas remain deeply unpopular. To put it crudely, the political battle over someone's memory is a political battle over policy. In Thatcher's case, if we gloss over her history of supporting tyrants, we are doomed to repeat them.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with loathing Margaret Thatcher or any other person with political influence and power based upon perceived bad acts, and that doesn't change simply because they die. If anything, it becomes more compelling to commemorate those bad acts upon death as the only antidote against a society erecting a false and jingoistically self-serving history.

Or to put it even more simply, in the words, of David Wearing, "People praising Thatcher's legacy should show some respect for her victims." That would be nice, wouldn't it? Let's please show some respect for Margaret Thatcher's victims. Let's respect those who mourn everyday because of her policies, but choose this one day to wipe away the tears. Then let's organize to make sure that the history she authored does not repeat.
