...if you've already got an idea or two for subs in the tragic event of Baroness Thatcher departing this vale of tears at some point over the next few days.

I wrote one a while back.
I doubt she'll die. She'll probably just rust.
If she goes today then it will have been on 2010 2010 - which would be a memorable quiz question.
In the US, all this "amazing day" crap will be over in 2013 (since we do it MMDDCCYY). I guess the rest of the world will be plagued by it until 2032.
My typing tends to go to pot whilst dancing and tramping dirt down, so please bear with me
I thought she'd died years ago and Fluck and Law had been keeping her 'animated'.
I, for one, will take to the streets to celebrate. In fact, I think my dad may even have a bottle of fizz set aside to toast that joyous day.
Subs? Not yet, but I'm sure this lady'll turn one out.
You fools. She can't die. She's just a bit giddy because she exposed herself to sunlight close to someone eating some garlic bread.
Thatcher + Sub = General Belgrano
When they carry her off in a box, Mr T.I. World, we ought to have a funeral hop-skip worked out so that we can go down to the BEEB's offices en masse and do something like a joyful River Dance outside, stopping traffic. Can't be ignored from the DG's window and all, like. Since you are already energised at the very idea, I suggest that you work out the steps and provide us with elements of choreography. We'll practice at home and train five friends each.
A training video on YouTube might help increase participation, and save many vuvuzelas from the tip.
My sub's already on the ticker... :-)
I drove past the Cromwell Hospital this morning, couldn't find a 'please die soon' card to drop off though...
Brilliant BPR. *****
If she's to have a State Funeral, then a Viking one would be quite apposite. Walküre-like in horned helmet and veils, she could be conveyed on a longship down the Thames headed out to sea, away from these islands and into International Waters. A sub or an Exocet could do the job nicely.
In fact, I like the image so much, why wait until she's dead?
So which one out of you impoverished keyboard totting middle-class latte lot has suffered the most from Thatcherite policies since you left uni?
How many of you lot hate her because she denied you the opportunity to work down a mine or work in a steel foundry?
Which bit of Old Blighty would you most like to see return?
You might have come from a council estate but I bet you’re not planning on going back there any time soon.
Which lung disease would you most like to be suffering right now?
Will the next wave of Blairite inspired job losses, cuts, business closures, strikes, misery be any easier to bear?
Virtually ALL politicians are bastards – some bigger than others.
Thatcher didn’t fuck this country up all on her own. She had a lot of help.
In fact, everybody except me has done their bit to fuck this country up somewhere along the way.
I only do the lottery so that I can give it all away to good causes and charity - not like you selfish bastards.
YOU just need somebody to point the finger at and Thatcher Blue seems more politically leftish 'right on' than New Labour.
I might hate the toffs, the millionaires, the privileged, the upper-classes (that’s pure jealousy)...but I hate the self righteous fuckwit middle classes even more.
And while we're on, Which one of you twats keeps leaving a trail of litter wherever you go? I’m sick of picking it up after you. Bastard
That's settled then - she is to blame.
Hey Rikkor, how is your taste-o-meter on this bile-laden strand?
Careful Gerontius, they'll start calling you right-wing, and you wouldn't want that, would you.
Actually I had a sub about Thatcher: "Female satirist with gun to her head finally admits that yes, yes Thatch did kind of have a point about the overweening syndicalism of the unions".
Pretty funny, huh?
I feel that Gerontius is having a bad dream.
Mine's a mochaccino.
Wonder how many people who voted for her (more than voted for Blair!) are now jumping on the 'Evil Mrs Thatch' bandwagon.
If I close my eyes I can see Ben Elton's sparkly jacket...
Life was sooo much better under Labour; come back Jim 'Crisis, what crisis' Callaghan, all is forgiven.
What will the vegtables do when she dies?
Nice one Rick.
Just to make it very clear - my hatred of Thatcher in no way diminishes my loathing of Blair. Ben Elton, of course, inhabits his own special plane of Hell...
And cheers, Scroat.
Rick, this special plane of Hell Ben Elton inhabits, does he have a double seat?
I think Gerontius is the voice of reason.
You just can't please the right on luvvies.
In the 70s, if you told a donkey jacket wearing university graduate that Britain would soon have a working class, northern woman as prime minister, you'd expect them to be happy wouldn't you?
If you told Wedgie Benn that one day London would be governed by a foreign-born Mayor called Boris, you'd expect him to be break into song.
But oh no, he spends all his time moaning.
you just can't please these Toffskies can you?
I reckon Maggie was the Emperor to Tony Blair's Anakin Skywalker / Darth Vader (Have you ever seen Maggie and Emporer Palpatine in the same room together? I rest my case). With her out of the way he should rightly take over the role as head of the Sith and train up a new apprentice Sith Lord.
Gerontious does raise an interesting point though - "What have the Romans ever done for us?" as the wannabe rebels say in Life of Brian. 3million unemployed and the Poll Tax vs mass share ownership in this case.
Under Blair we had mass unemployment. But they fiddled the figures by classifying people as students or on disability benefit.
I voted for Blair! what a twat I am.
