How is changing the good old traditional British August Bank Holiday to the nasty and insipid Thatcher Day get you an extra day off?
Was it an August Bank Holiday when the 30 odd years of economic decline for the working and middle classes first started?

She nationalised many industries that the majority of their people in the UK now want re-nationalised (and sold them to foreign companies).
She deregulated the financial markets which eventually led to the UKs banking crisis.
You never saw people begging in the UK before her term in office.

So you don't care what it's called as long as you get a day off? OK let's try Jimmy Savile Day for starters. Like it? I thought not.

Don't worry folks. It has no chance of becoming law as it does not have cross party support (it is being introduced by a eccentric Tory backbencher, Peter Bone, who is under investigation for alleged fraud) so will never have a majority in this Parliament.

I would quite like a Thatcher day. It would be a sombre 'warning from history' affair in which schoolchildren learn about this awful woman, and also those who helped her, and were then too chicken/greedy to get rid of her when even they realised how awful she was.

Section 28, I hope you present all the facts to your own children and allow them to make the decisions for themselves. Pushing your warped views onto them is equal to child abuse.

That has to win a prize for the most genius stupid comment of the week. Or I suppose offensive if you have been the victim of actual child abuse.
I don't think Mrs Thatcher's friend Sir Jimmy Saville would have been arrested if he had simply told children that he thought she was awful.
Happy Thatcher Day.

No doubt the poor and not the likes of the rich will brunt any cost incurred for changing the name of our bank holiday?
Its disgusting the amount of money this Tory Government (more poignantly the TAX Paying British Public) has spent over her funeral and associated expenses already!
In the Banking Mess Together?
Am I laughing all the way to the Bank?
Are you so apathetic you can't ACT?
Seems So..

Noooo. name it Thatcher day and you'll have Blair clamouring for his own day too (notice the Messianic look in his eyes these days ?)

I suggest Bevin day in tribute to the architect of the NHS, which is a source of national pride to the vast majority of the people in this country.

Yes, you're right belladonna. But let's make sure it's Bevan. Ernie Bevin was the foreign secretary in that Labour government.
