Ed Miliband - My Fake Diary
Monday, 17 September 2012
Sick union militants at the TUC conference have been blasted for flogging 'Party Packs' for when Margaret Thatcher dies.
The macabre £10 goodie bags contain balloons, whistles and party poppers featuring the cruel slogan "Ding Dong Thatcher's Gone".
Stocks had sold out yesterday at the gathering in Brighton.
And a stall selling T-shirts attacking the ex-Tory PM to raise cash for the Derbyshire Unemployed Workers' Centre was also doing a roaring trade.
One had her name on a headstone and declared: "A generation of trade unionists will dance on Thatcher's grave."
I was embarrassed recently when pictured with a Labour council candidate wearing one of the T-shirts. But stall-holder Colin Hampton said: "I don't think it is rejoicing in the death of Thatcher."
After I'd talked with them, the TUC last night ordered the stall to be taken down and called the goods "tasteless and inappropriate".
