Comment: Although the atmosphere is indeed 'celebratory', take note of what the revellers are actually saying: Margaret Thatcher, as representative of a fundamentalist neo-liberal ideology masking rampant greed, opened the gates of hell in 1979 for millions of people, and not just in Britain. Once the US followed suit, thanks to Reagan's implementation of Friedman's schizoidal ideas the following year, greed and destruction metastasised on a global scale and today we see the direct consequences: a planet that is on the brink.
