Jeremy is probably not bothered....to be honest.

Jeremy Hardy wasn't being compared to a bunch of tyrants, Margaret Thatcher was being compared to a bunch of tyrants. Studyform's hypocrital criticism of comments on here was exposed when compared to his comments on Thatcher's death. That pretty much sums it up.
No she wasn't. My explanation was clear.
No - I wasn't.
I was making a very simple point, which is that there is a point at which sympathy and respect at someone passing away stops being sympathy. Not a comparison of people at all.
By YOUR reckoning Jeremy Hardy should be compared with Thatcher. Not by mine.
So I'll write my post in a way that would-be lawyers and pedants like you can understand.
By asking you this straightforward question.
Would you say that at the passing of Stalin, Pol Pot or Hitler (for example) you would be writing "RIP" and other sympathies?
I'll answer (honestly) for you. No you wouldn't. OF COURSE THERE WAS NO ANSWER TO THIS
Nor would I.
Neither would I about Thatcher (along with millions of others). Which IS NOT to compare her to the other despots.
So Thatcher dead - "I rejoiced in that news" as she once did. Jeremy Hardy dead - RIP
Akabula - seriously mate, do you HAVE to comment on every little thing I say, even joining in with someone pouring through 6 year old threads to try to discredit little old me?
Your collective desperation to politicise EVERY thread, or pick up on and conflate or distort facts to suit your own stupid twisted political agendas is nothing short of pathetic.
YET torquemada, you fundamentally agree with my initial point that lybertyne is out of order, but felt the need to attempt to ridicule me along the way... sad, desperate stuff.
Tell me, as you enjoy pouring through old forgotten threads, with the exception of Thatcher (who had LOADS of detractors, even in death) how many other posts did you find?
Some of you live your lives around this (political) stuff. Same old trolls, nothing new to say, boring and very sad.
