Gone ...

By Dave_Henderson    
...... but her legacies still remain.

Ashington, one of the many ghost towns created by past and present right wing economic policies.

The red shoes have been returned, who's going to wear them and pilot the broomstick next?

Very well done. Not sure about the red shoes but maybe there's something I don't know. Was she famous for colourful shoes?.......Sandy

It's odd but I shall not be attending or even viewing the funeral on Wednesday, I have a prior engagement at Woodhorn Colliery. A pit that's now a museum... It would have closed anyway, I guess...
This says so much. I'm just hoping that Wednesday will close a chapter, that people can move on afterwards.
My only slight quibble with this is the craquelure effect on her face, it would be far more sinister au naturel... But that's minor.

Thanks for the U.A. and the comment Moira.
I only live five minutes from the museum, it's worth a visit. My father worked down there for forty three years. If you get a chance have a look around the town and see the legacy she left.

This appears as a very heartfelt depiction of the realities of extremism. It matters not if its the extreme actions of corrupt politicians, or the extreme actions of power hungry unions. Until the country is guided by reasonable people in a reasonable and sane manner then we will always be plagued with outcomes like this. Sad

Blimey, that was a bit deep for this early in the day! Blush

A very well thought out and produced image.
