Thatcher the Milk Snatcher.

Recommended Posts

Come on then ………… I have nailed my flag to the mast, instead of one-liners how about giving us a bit of your background.

 

Background is irrelevant. I'm saying that the strength of feeling is still strong and I believe that people who didn't fully agree with the strikes, but went on strike anyway, wouldn't make their disagreement clear even to this day.

Mr Smith claim to be from mining stock, maybe he should take note what it was really all about ……… don’t just click this link and then close it ………

 

 

If they were seals or whales you would all be up in arms ………… says it all really.

 

Walking behind you villages banner at the

, annual trip to the seaside, going to the club on a Sunday afternoon for pop and crisps, community spirit, days when you not only knew your neighbours … you actually worked with them ………. All gone and nothing to replace it.

That is one of the best films ever made.

It sums up those times perfectly.

As demonstrated on this forum on a regular basis, the hatred of some of the members on here to anything conservative is that deep that they would no doubt put a brick through our windows if they knew were we lived.

It seems that way.

 

I'm yet to read comments written on here by by a Tory describing their hatred for other people, but the lefties spew their vitriolic hatred at every opportunity - then call Conservatives the 'Nasty party'. Funny old world.

Do some of you really think it would have been better if we'd continued with the union dominance of British industry that we'd had in the 70s? Our car industry was destroyed by the unions, in no small measure they brought about the demise of the mining industry (not steel which actually continued to have rising outputs long after Thatcher's government).

 

Various PMs Conservative and Labour had failed to control the unions. For those who remember the 70s, we had the 3 day week, power cuts, uncollected rubbish on the streets, unburied bodies, days when even the tabloids weren't printed, because the unions were strangling the country through their own mixture of financial greed and utterly misguided militant left wing policies. Any talk of efficiencies or even labour saving technology would lead to walk-outs, because some people hadn’t learned from the Luddites, and some still haven’t to this day.

 

Even many in the Labour party (the sensible ones anyway) acknowledged that without union reform Britain was doomed, and the economic prosperity we’ve had for more than two decades up to current recession would not have happened were it not for Thatcher’s actions in stamping down the unions. People upset about the mining industry now should consider how we’d be if we had none of our industries left functioning, as would have been the case if the unions had not been controlled.

 

She put property ownership within reach of people who could not have dreamed before of the financial security of being home owners.

She supported Reagan in ending the Cold War, perhaps not a positive achievement to many of the communists and hard line socialists who frequent this forum and had greater sympathies for the Soviet system, but a great contribution to world history all the same.

She also fought hard to win us much better financial deals with the EU than they wanted to give us, saving many billions over the coming years.

 

She is indeed reviled by the people of some northern cities who selfishly refuse to look at the greater needs of the country over the needs of their industry, but it’s good to know that she’s still adored in the rest of England and in most towns people doff their cap to her car when she passes. It’s also common for her to receive standing ovations of clapping when she leaves a restaurant or theatre to this day by the adoring public. I like to reflect on the support and public adoration she continues to receive in the South, because most people have the sense to appreciate her tenure as PM and remind her of that. Some bitter, hateful, small-minded northerners aside, that is.

 

I read this somewhere, can’t remember where:

“In the first half of the 20th century, we had Winston Churchill and Lloyd George. In the second half of the century, there was Margaret Thatcher alone”.
