Don’t have to be too cordial as he did pave the way for terrible populists like Johnson and Trump.

Feels like he comes up a lot on GSFTEOTW but can’t remember any of the specifics now.

It’s not quite Kissinger, but I’ll take it.

It’ll be interesting to see what aspects of his career the obituaries will focus on.

I’m normally a bit squeamish when it comes to saying mean things about the deceased but lets face it: it’s good that he’s dead but it’d have been better if he’d never been born

ah yes we must judge politicians purely on their policies and no other aspects of their character or actions.

I don’t know who Justin Horton is but he sounds vapid and tedious

But Berlusconi made the bribes run on time!

I think the point the twitterer is trying to make isn’t that people should only ever talk about a politician’s policies, but that by only discussing his sleaze, papers and media are demonstrating they think the hideous fascist shit he did while in power was absolutely fine. i think. twitter speak has its own code.

But you know how like a lot of Liberals/soft cons hate Trump not because they disagree with what he did, but because he was flash and gaudy and gross with it.

wrt the above, find it a bit weird that the BBC said he was remembered for his ‘fondness for parties with younger women’ - that’s one way of putting it! constantly talking about how he ‘somehow bounced back’ from scandals too. so mealy mouthed, he’s not alan partridge, he was a fucking criminal.

It’ll be the same when Trump finally keels over. Being rude is a far worse crime to liberals than murderous policies.
