She just can't resist can she?

"Margaret Thatcher was the First Lady of Girl Power"

Is there nothing that gauche creature Halliwell won't do to use those self-publicising words "Girl Power"?

What a vile person. Ding Dong the witch lives on!!

Edit: this may not belong in Music, it may get moved. I don't care - I just needed to get it off my chest

I thought Shampoo were the first ladies of Girl Power (they sang about it before the Spice Girls came along)

To be fair she said this back in 1997 so it's not really new or jumping on any bandwagon.

Yeah Shampoo sang Girl Power in 1996 before the Spices burst onto the scene

Geri has made this quote a number of times over the years. So its nothing new.

Yes I know she's said it before but I suppose that only emphasises her complete unoriginality.

Can she not think of anything to say of any meaning?

Yeah, this was originally said ages ago, but to be fair she is right. She might have polarised opinion and made life hell etc, but Thatcher was one of the first women to really break into a male dominated world.

No doubt Thatcher broke into a male dominated world but I'm sure that's not in the forefront of Geri's mind when she trots out that tired old slogan yet again!

Move on Geri - it was over 15 years ago, find something new!!

And closed the door behind her.

Don't be silly, Geri wouldn't be where she is today without Thatcher

As others have said she said it before. She was just reiterating her statement. I think it's actually you jumping on the Bandwagon. The anti-Gerri bandwagon.

That's right. Don't make me post a "Leave Geri Halliwell ALOOONNEEE" video.

Is there an anti-Geri bandwagon? Get me a ticket!!

And as I said before, I know she has said this before - my point is she always trots out this tired old Girl Power statement just to draw attention to herself.

Self-publicity is her raison d'etre

Sad thing is she thinks she's probably being cool saying it

A lot of Geri Halliwell's fame comes from her boobs and her legs - can Maggie say the same?

Lol - only just seen this

Now she hasn't even got the balls to stick by her own words for fear of being unpopular.

Jeez, she really is something!

She wasn't the only celeb who had to put up with abuse over similar tweets. Sounds like you just have an issue with Geri!

Yes, I do - I can't stand her!
But there's plenty more on my list, she's way up at the top though.

So that's Geri Halliwell making a public statement as fact?

Is this what she really believes or does somebody need to educate her about history before she was born?

It's not fair if it's not true though is it?

"Thatcher was one of the first women to really break int a male dominated world".

Are you serious? This is 1979 we're talking about here.
In the scale of significant women in history this is a mere second on a twenty four hour clock.

Yeah it annoys me that Thatcher is always credited as the first woman in politics. There were many before her and I doubt that had it not been for Barbara Castle, of the Labour party no less, getting the equal pay for women notion though the Tories wouldn't have ever elected Maggie as leader. Yet Castle is forever overlooked. Disgraceful.

Sounds like she's testing the water to see what other more popular celebrities say first.

Yes, that's real girl power isn't it Geri?

Not just politics either.
Plenty of women in history have made big inroads in fields which were traditionally male dominated.

Strong female leaders go a long way back in history too.

Now, I know how fame hungry Geri can come across, but I really do tnk she was just reiterating her comment from years ago. When she originally said this years ago it was quite a statement, it made it into the papers with bug headlines. Sheprobably thought alot of people would male the connection.

Don't worry Bluray, I know exactly why you posted this thread, she can come across a bit desperate and transparent at times so it's easy to see why you would have thought her comment was out there.
