Skip to comments.T-shirts rejoicing over Thatcher's death sold at trades union gathering
Posted on 09/11/2012 8:02:19 AM PDT by Cronos
The T-shirts, on sale at the Trades Union Congress’s annual conference, cost £10 each and boast that union members will want to "dance on her grave" when she dies.
Last night outraged Conservative MPs called for Labour leader Ed Miliband to disassociate himself with the TUC and for the police to investigate. Mr Miliband's shadow Chancellor Ed Balls is due to address the annual gathering tomorrow.
The T-shirts, which are wrapped in clear plastic, are being marketed by the Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centre, an organisation which provides "welfare rights advice services" and which is affiliated to the TUC.
One of the garments has an image of Mrs Thatcher’s spitting image puppet, with the words “Hey ho the witch is dead” along side.
Attached to the plastic is a notice urging the buyer only to wear when Lady Thatcher has died. It says: “In the event of Thatcher's death of Thatcher open bag and wear Tee shirt immediately." last night Conservative MPs criticised the T-shirts as tastless. Conor Burns, a Tory MP who regularly visits Lady Thatcher at her home in central London, said: These sickening sentiments speak to something disordered in the human condition.
It shows an ugly side to the hard left who cannot move on from their utter defeat at the hands of this remarkable, but now frail, lady.
Not for the first time Lady T shows why she amounts to so much more than her opponents.
Aidan Burley MP,..This sick merchandise tells you all you need to know about some in the union movement - baseless, cowardly and utterly devoid of morality.

Those cretins and thugs can all GTH.
President Ronald Reagan and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
Modern era conservative heroes. We'll not soon see their like again.
Look at her accomplishments. That’s what these union pigs are against. They’re on the wrong side of humanity.
well... i know a few places i will relieve myself once every year
May the dear Lady outlive all those would wear those vile T shirts.
Why do you think they buried Ted Kennedy at Arlington instead of in MA?
That is such a great picture. I sure do miss him and his love for this country.Thanks for posting this.
Bill Clinton is hosting some sort of “global conference” this fall.
and Englands GDP is what?
These unions suck the juice of life out of a country.
Does England even have a GDP anymore...
Whatever their domestic product has fallen to, I’m pretty sure it’s gross.
She will if the shirts were made with union labor.
I was over in Scotland a decade or so ago and expressed my support for Ronald Reagan and Maggie.....oh man, it was on!
They were very vocal against Margaret Thatcher. I felt pretty damn alone in that pub. lol
Scotland is to the left of Stalinist Russia.
This is one of my all time favorite clips. It is her response to “income inequality.”
my ex-neighbor the Teamster would fully agree with this
Lady Thatcher at President Reagan's funeral.
Let them sell them.
I will start making and selling my T shirts:
‘Labour closed more mines in 11 years of government than the Tories did in 18’....
