"NO! NO! NO! To a Minutes silence for Maggie.
Thatcher is one of the most hated politicians the people of Wales have ever had the misfortune to have been ruled by. We, the undersigned, demand that OUR Senedd does not demean itself in fake sycophancy by showing this enemy of Wales the slightest gram of attention in the wake of her overdue death. During her callous reign Thatcher systematically destroyed communities all over Wales as well as targetting the weakest in our society. We should afford her the same courtesy that she afforded us, NONE."
Today I had a reply.
‘Obituary Tributes to Baroness Thatcher’ are timetabled for the start of Plenary on Tuesday. We are not yet aware if this will include a minute’s silence. This, and all decisions on tributes in Plenary are for the Presiding Officer to make, and not something that the Petitions Committee can consider.
So there we have it, just like we cannot raise a dead old witch we cannot raise a petition calling for our Senedd to ignore her. But, there is something we can do. For a start we can email the presiding officer and voice our disgust.
We can email our AM, you can find yours here.
Or better still, why not email EVERY single AM and tell them all that you are disgusted that they are to offer this vile woman any of OUR time when she had nothing but contempt for us. Just copy and paste ALL the addresses below into the recipients section of your email.
