      The bbc are not interested in going outside of London or media centre Manchester for an interview it might be too much hard work.

      One of my in laws was filmed by the bbc for a programme they did such a hatchet job on him that they edited a 2 day interview process down to 5 mins and misrepresented his organisation so badly

      London is Cosmopolitan – has always been cosmopolitan – and that is its strength.

      I don’t like the place – although I was there Saturday – all that traffic and trains and the underground!!

      It was lovely to come home and sit in a quiet garden afterwards.

      Thing is if you don’t the place you need to find somewhere else that you do like.

    It’s not wrong to cap benefits, it’s just that the left wing think we should keep paying out for ever higher amounts. They never answer the question how can 1 million east Europeans get a job over here when we have 1 million unemployed !!!

          No one should be able to claim any kind of benefits until they’ve paid into the system for a few years.

          When a relative moved to Greece several years ago,she had to have a certain amount of money deposited in a Greek bank account to prove she wouldn’t be a drain on the their system. Why can’t we introduce that here?

          When another relative tried to emigrate to Australia several years ago, he couldn’t because he didn’t have the skills they wanted. Why can’t we introduce that here?

    The Right Honourable George Osborne Mp says:

    Theresa April, Home Secretary says:

    I am deeply saddened by todays announcement of the passing of Baroness Thatcher.

    It is now my responsibility to make appropriate funeral arrangements.

    In view of this sudden and unexpected news it is right that I suspend my campaign to drive nasty elements out of the Conservative Party.

    I will not consider standing for the now-vacant position of Leader until after next week’s State funeral.

      Diane most probably has claimed over £10 million from the taxpayer as a councillor and mp. So that is a waste of money. Diane get a real job you benefit scrounger

        she claimed £560 for photographs of herself…. Hmmmmm

    My objections to Thatcher can be summarised thus:

    1. The destruction of British Industry because it was the main source of her opposition

    2. Her reinstatement of permanent mass unemployment (4.5 million) for political purposes after an absence of 50 years

    3. The waste of North Sea Oil revenues funding that mass unemployment and a failure to invest a one-time windfall

    4. The devastation of whole areas of Britain – left to rot and so producing a permanent underclass and areas of Britain that all these years later remain devastated


    • 70
      Mitch says:

      So, when she ‘destroyed’ the main source of her opposition, did those people then support her, or still ‘opppose’ her?? I think you may be a little confused.


    • 76
      CarryHole is a silly Hunt says:

      I think you’ll find she just removed the subsidy for those areas that failed (that was being paid for by ruining said subsidising areas).

      She didn’t destroy them, they destroyed themselves by allowing unions.

      Cut-me-own-throat Dibbler says:

      1. Manufacturing industry declined more under Blair and Brown than it ever did under Thatcher. So logically you must hate Labour more.
      2. It was the unions who created the unemployment by striking so much and asking for too much money so the industry could not compete against the rest of the world. And because it could not compete nobody was willing to invest in it.
      3. The money from North Sea oil was spent in paying off the debts that previous cowardly governments had spent appeasing unions, especially in nationalised industry.
      4. Certain areas indeed were deprived (as they were before 1979) but the reason for that was that there was no money to do much about it despite the high taxation at the beginning of her leadership. Far too much was being spent subsidising failing uncompetitive industries like coal and iron and steel. And it was tax payers money being wasted. And so because ordinary people paid so much tax they couldnt afford to buy all that much. But Thatcher changed all that and reduced taxes so that people had more money in their pockets.

      And why is that people are more than willing to come to this country from all corners of the world to seek work but some people in this country can’t even be arsed to go to their local job centre to look for work?


      • 139
        Little Englander says:

        And now far too much is being spent subsidising failing uncompetitive lefty jobsworths in the public sector and in quangos, NGOs and fake charities and in bribing Labour’s core support of anti-everything groaners, moaners, whingers and their imported foreign electorate. And it is tax payers money being wasted.

      Anonymong says:

      1. The destruction of Militant, politicised Trades Union because it was the main source of economic disruption.

      2. Her reinstatement of temporary mass unemployment (4.5 million) as a big stick to threaten the culture of entitlement.

      3. The waste of North Sea Oil revenues to stop a bunch of subsidised steel and mine workers from starving.

      4. The evolution of whole areas of Britain – encourgaing to pull their fingers out and to discourage them from suckling at the teat of the state. Instead they’ve expanded their expectations of “entitlement” and become satiated with big TVs and cheap holidays in the sun.


    • 124
      Tony E says:

      Even if any of that was factually accurate, it fails to deal with one glaring issue.

      When these great working communities were suddenly found without work due to old industries closing down (for whatever reason) – why did not the new industries move into those areas to exploit the sudden availability of potentially high skilled, but relatively cheap labour?

      Why for example, did big firms coming into the UK for the first time in the 80’s move to places like Reading and Slough rather than to Sheffield?


    • 129
      Anonymous says:

      She destroyed the Unions.

      That left a vacuum. There was no one left backing small industry.

      The subsequent governments cocooned in the safety of Westminster only listened to those with a voice. Therefore there was nothing other than the financial sector and the multi-nationals.

      We did not grow our own industry and became reliant on the financial sector. This was then seen as essential and given special powers. It grew uncontrolled without any competition for economic attention.

      Then it all fell down.

      She killed the voice of the industries, because they had become corrupted with power. But left the country biased and damaged.

      History shows the worst thing to do is to completely destroy an enemy.

          Little Englander says:

          Good point, well made. Instead of “investing in growth” they imported a new foreign electorate “to rub the right’s nose in diversity” – and went to war.


    • 143
      Jan says:

      Funny thing is that by the time Thatcher became PM there was NO British industry to speak of. I was working for a US company trying to source all manner of goods in the UK for our massive billion dollar projects. Because of where the projects were (outside the EU) we did not have to buy equipment from Europe. Our buyers tried to purchase in the UK but gave up….The materials we did purchase were always late…It was exhausting dealing with UK manufacturers.There was always some drama or other.

    Neil Kinnock (before the 1983 election) says:

    If Margaret Thatcher is re-elected as prime minister on Thursday, I warn you. I warn you that you will have pain – when healing and relief depend upon payment. I warn you that you will have ignorance – when talents are untended and wits are wasted, when learning is a privilege and not a right. I warn you that you will have poverty – when pensions slip and benefits are whittled away by a government that won’t pay in an economy that can’t pay. I warn you that you will be cold – when fuel charges are used as a tax system that the rich don’t notice and the poor can’t afford.
    I warn you that you must not expect work – when many cannot spend, more will not be able to earn. When they don’t earn, they don’t spend. When they don’t spend, work dies. I warn you not to go into the streets alone after dark or into the streets in large crowds of protest in the light. I warn you that you will be quiet – when the curfew of fear and the gibbet of unemployment make you obedient. I warn you that you will have defence of a sort – with a risk and at a price that passes all understanding. I warn you that you will be home-bound – when fares and transport bills kill leisure and lock you up. I warn you that you will borrow less – when credit, loans, mortgages and easy payments are refused to people on your melting income.
    If Margaret Thatcher wins on Thursday, I warn you not to be ordinary. I warn you not to be young. I warn you not to fall ill. I warn you not to get old.

    Since this is the final Judgement, what about the other end of the spectrum.

    The unquestioned bureaucrats that have become rule makers, judges, and executioners. How is it that arbitration is being forced on victims to silence them. How can the victim have confidence in the system when the identity or past history of an arbitrator is hidden. The whole point of justice is that it is seen to be achieved. Otherwise there is no trust.

    This creep of pseudo courts has been going on for some time, we have a quango charity CRT that is given by law the right to set terms and conditions on its license, to use a public owned resource. Yet this quango decides that it will also be the judge and executioner. It sets the terms and conditions, and decides unilaterally who is acceptable. It then discriminates between identical people just on their views.

    But some how in the corruption of this country it is now seen as normal that certain groups have powers that no law ever gave them. If a law, or rule, is broken then they can use the authorities, that do have these powers, to enforce them. But why should unelected unrepresentative bureaucrats be allowed to make these decisions. How can one body simultaneously create the evidence and determine its validity?

    When was is that the law changed so any tax paid employee could punish the public?

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”
