拜讀大作，學弟都認同文章裡的論據和觀點。香港是需要一個像鐵娘子般的政治家來帶領這特區重拾軌道。但是，從政府里到地區、立法議會，都充滿了窩囊飯袋、政棍和唯利是圖之輩，加上香港的特殊政治環境和萬千的愚民及單純學子，一個像鐵娘子般的領袖，真的能出現嗎？學弟認為香港真正需要的是一個愚民和中央都信任的領袖，一個務實而明白怎樣停止香港現時的內耗和深層次茅盾的政治家，一個能喚醒夜狼自大、不識死活的香港人的導師。學弟認芸芸港人政客中，無人能稱職。學兄可有人選？可考慮出來積極的喚醒不思考但白要求的香港人？學兄如果能為我們走出來，一定會得到大家的支持！余觉得不是能力的问题。当年英国因福利主义及工会坐大搞得一穷二白，Tory党内应该人人都明瞭, Heath也不是不明瞭，他之所以被铁娘取代为党魁就是因为他婆婆妈妈要以consensus行事，缺少了成大事者敢冒天下大不韪之魄力。狼与贪曾也不是无能之辈。贪曾如果能预知他慷纳税人之概出差obscene spending的丑行会曝光而落得如今的骂名，或许他会觉得为香港作点长远有益的事而比『泛民粹』骂，更为值得。 zhangWL 於 2013/05/13 11:59回覆

When anything is pushed to extreme, like socialism or capitalism, it is going to do us more harm eventually. Britain is great because it has a system to regulate itself. We need a system more than a leader.
the same British political system has been in use for well over a century when Thatcher came to the scene. it's the same system which elected successive Labour Govts culminating in "Sick Man of Europe". in China, we also have the same system running for 60+ years now which 1st produced political turmoils like the Great Leap Forward, anti-rightist, & cultural revolution, before Uncle Deng re-emerged at about the same time as Thatcher & surpassing the latter in bringing about what many western economists called a miracle.
the lesson learned in both Britain & China is that system is secondary to the apppearance or the absence of the visionary helmsman.zhangWL 於 2013/05/13 21:48回覆

Pretty good article concerning Thatcher. Deepen my respect for her accomplishment in a very tough politcal environment at her time.
Wish you all get a better leader in Hong Kong next time.

Mrs Thatcher is a controversial politician in the history. From the prosperities enjoyed by the British citizens, her contribution to her government is without any dispute.

Well written article Wai Lun! In my view Thatcher has single-mindedly transformed Britain into a modern free market economy, not dominated by trade union movement (like France does today). Thank goodness her ceremonial funeral was not interrupted by protestors! She deserved to be remembered properly. However if you had directly been on the receiving end you might have felt hard done by. Perhaps some people in HK might feel that they have been betrayed too when HK was rescinded back to China?? One thing most people don't agree with her view was that there is no such thing as society!! DavidLiu

可怖，自鐵娘子當政，才可缺離 (Sick Man of Europe) 這不名譽ｏ

由於是女性關係, 反正怎樣做都會給人說三道四, 所以可以乾脆大膽地改革; 這亦是她在男權當道中突圍而出的不二之法.

do not understand what the article is trying to bring out, a strong right wing conservative leader or supporting a left wing union and people power base leader? or supporting anyone that is against the central beijing government
talk is cheap, a leader that deliver peace, stability, prosperity, intergrity, human right and dignaty to the people is good leader

A well written article of William, a lot of insight. Margaret Thatcher's great success was to reduce the power of the unions, which could bring a country to its knees. This had been the case in Australia before John Howard came to power in 1996. Australia in the 1980s experienced all-too-frequent strikes with reduced productivity. Union reform and reducing state welfare are ways to bring Europe out of the financial crisis. Nevertheless, Thatcher's extreme right wing (she labelled Nelson Mandela a terrorist) brought on a biased worldview, she supported corrupt right wing governments which treated their countrymen as hard as any communist governments.
