Mrs Thatcher Day

Post  Dalelad on Fri Jul 05, 2013 8:29 am

A Tory MP has tabled a motion to get the Aug bank holiday name Mrs Thatcher Day. He's been quoted as saying that he couldn't think of anyone who would oppose it in the whole country.

I can only think that either he's deaf and blind, was out of the country when she died, or just plain daft!

Perhaps there is something in this. A special day set aside to burn a hate-figure in effigy with fireworks, festive food etc?

November 5th sounds good to me.

Ding dong.

August bank holiday? Re-named Thatcher-day? Sounds like a riot. Cool

It's not the Yanks you have to worry about matey. We've been watching you for years. Doh.

On subject. Yes. Good Idea. Can we have it on Nov 5th please. A Guy and a Gal should do quite nicely together on any bonfire. Love the idea. Let's go for it.

November 5th is best left to Guy Fawkes, as a celebration of his attempt to blow up the houses of parliament, or is it to celebrate that he didn't manage it, it's never quite clear.

If we are to have a national Mrs. Thatcher day, and on reflection, it does appeal to the British sense of humour, it should be in August. A Thatcher-day in August might make the riots we have every summer in the northern towns more predictable. July/August is a bit vague. This would have the advantage of attracting tourists on the day who may wish to see them, and making it easier for shoppers to avoid them. (The riots that is.)

Real telephone call, from Manchester to Hull.
"Hello dear, how are you getting on in Hull, I see in the news there have been riots."
Reply,
"Riots, no riots. - Oh, you mean the summer fair."
