WITH refernce to your page two headline “Outrage as parties planned and foes gloat over passing of ex-PM” (Yorkshire Post, April 9), there also should be outrage over the fact that Mrs Thatcher destroyed our coal and steel industries, our manufacturing base, and outrage for the thousands of good, honest working people who lost their jobs and whose lives she ruined purely because of her paranoid hatred of trade unions, this should never be forgotten or forgiven.
Today’s diet of left-overs
From: Terry Duncan, Greame Road, Bridlington, East Yorkshire.
IF our Prime Minister David Cameron takes on the mantle of that great lady, Baroness Thatcher, then this country of ours would be wealthier, free of crime, crooks, devious dealers in finance, trade union controls and the end of a regime of benefit con merchants.
None today would recover from a belt round the ear from her handbag.
God bless Mrs Thatcher. If only her political left-overs would listen to her edict.

SERENDIPIDITY give us the opportunity to make a symbolic gesture by consigning the coffin (and that statue) to the bottom of the shaft at Maltby Colliery just before it is capped.
From: Terry Palmer, South Lea Avenue, Hoyland, Barnsley.
I WAS not a miner but was affected by Margaret Thatcher’s wretchedness as were millions of others who didn’t live in the Surrey stockbroker belt. Good riddance. Get the bunting out and bring on the street parties.
