As Britain woke up this morning to the news of the death of Margaret Thatcher (the country’s first female Prime Minister), I made my view known in that… “if you’ve got nothing good to say, don’t say anything at all”!
However, as the day has developed it is clear just how much the Press in Britain appears ‘out of tune’ with Social Media. Or, is it just RESPECT?
I cannot believe just how much ‘hate’ there is out there for Baroness Thatcher, with me personally noticing around 90% of the negative comments on the likes of Facebook, Twitter and so on – and, from those I do not know or connected to.
Yet, the likes of the BBC (who I understand are there to report the news) have portrayed Lady Thatcher in the complete contrast to what appears to be the ‘overwhelming’ feeling towards her.
My belief is that everybody should Rest in Peace, but am I also ‘out of tune’?
In my lifetime having been raised under Thatcherism, I have never known a nation to be so divided over one person.
This has been a… Social Media, ‘View from the Bottom’.
