Thread Name: BS: Margaret Thatcher's Birthday-13 Oct 1925
Subject: RE: BS: Margaret Thatcher's Birthday.
Yes it was, it was a long way short of mass murder, you innocent fellow. It was a legitimate act of war. I recall someone at the time animadverting against it: "Why, they were running away from the scene of conflict," he trustingly explained. "And what," I asked him, "do they say about 'He who fights & runs away'?" He thought about it for a second, and then changed the subject. I think it would be seemly, Silas, if you were to do the same. I fear you are not showing yourself in the most flattering of lights.
