She hated the game and she hated it's working class, socialist roots so she took the first good opportunity she had to hand it to the one person who should never had got their hands on the game which was Murdoch.
Yes, the stadia now are wonderful and you don't have piss lapping at your ankles anymore, but they've become soulless in the English top flight as the atmosphere that sold the English league to the world has been replaced by tourists and gloryhunters who only follow a team because they're 'big'. Ordinary fans are priced out of the top flight and transfer fees don't reflect the real world where our public services are being slashed but hey, still pay your Sky subscription to keep millionaires in the manner they've got used to.
All because of Thatcher giving Murdoch more power than he should ever have got.
When she dies, I'm going back home for the biggest party Scotland's ever seen.
