it shouldn't be

Started by: peawapp (5071) 

upon perusing todays Daily Mirror. I was most surprised to see a full page on Thatcher, she was being taken out for an airing in the park with her carer ,I believe that the mirror should just be ignoring this evil old bag. she appears to have turned into a shambling old wreck now ,I wish that bloody dog she was stroking had taken a chunk out of her bloody arm. How are the mighty fallen

Although I come from a coalmining family and lived through the strike, I never really understood the Thatcher/Scargill thing that was going on. I've just been reading through loads of stuff and have come to the conclusion that as much as Thatcher was to blame for the demise of the working classes, Scargill did the miners no favours by calling a strike without a ballot which led to a division within the miners and mining communities, and weakened their position against Thatcher. Have I understood this correctly? This isn't a political argument, just trying to understand what went on.....

peawapp your comments are disgraceful if not disgusting. You attack an elderly lady who is like a lot of elderly people suffering from dementia. I wouldn't wish dementia on my worst enemy. Of course we all think it can't happen to us, I hope that should you succumb to this dreadful disease you would be treated with respect. My post has nothing to do with politics its about respect for the elderly. The header reads "it shouldn't be", it shouldn't be what.

Throughout the 1060s, with a Labour Government in office from 1964, the pit closure programme accelerated; it decimated the industry. During this period, nearly 300 more pits were closed, and the total workforce slumped from over 750,000 in the late 1950s down to 320,000 by 1968.I Dont remember Mrs Thatcher Prime Minister Then peawapp.

cindy you are wasting your time with peawapp, to him anything going on in afghanistan or libya is the fault of the coalition and has nothing at all to do with the previous labour government who sent them there (illegally) in the first place.

The energy policy of the 1964 Labour government signalled the end of coal as the primary source of fuel for electricity generation. When the oil and nuclear, on fiddled economics, power stations were given the go ahead the production of large scale deep mined coal was doomed. This terminal decline was accelerated with the discovery of North Sea gas which became the fuel of choice for power stations.

Mrs.Thatcher is blamed by many for policies which were the result of the of the EU single market creation in 1968.
The founding fathers, zealots more likely, of the single market set out to create a customs free zone across the EU to be followed by tax harmonisation and the end of monopoly providers. The latter prompted the sell off of the UK utilities for which Mrs Thatcher is considered by many to be the arch villain

I also agree maxine .united the miners would have stood ,but divided they did fall and all because they did not get a vote . a certain A scargill is still catching no harm money wise I bet .

Yes Scargill cocked up not calling for a ballot but even if he had called a ballot i reckon he would have comfortably got the o.k. to call a strike but the miners would not have been united, there would have still been scabs, espescially in Notts. They wouldn't have come out no matter what the vote. P.S. I was never a Thatcherite but still think pewapp's original post is bang out of order.

I'll do you a deal when that woman apologises to the families of the 321 Argentinians that she deliberately killed (many of them young sea cadets) and then went out on to the steps of Downing street and said "REJOICE" ,and apologises to the millions of workers that she drove to the brink of suicide in the 80s, then I may consider an apology ,but I wont hold my breath ,and neither should you

Did you read and understand that post or couldn't you see it through your ultrared specs.? Or maybe you just chose to ignore it because Thatcher only carried on what your beloved Labour Party started.

utt I have never voted Tory in my life and never will but the FACT remains, the coal industry was doomed even if Labour had stayed in power they would have phased out the mines, maybe not as quickly as Thatcher did it, but they would have done it. With regard to this shower that are in power right now i totally agree with you, they would see the workers doffing caps again, and they will surely try and dismantle the NHS, who was it that said we are living in a classless society? Classless society my @@@@.

I hate Margaret Thatcher with a vengence, evil horrible woman and a tory to boot,she couldn't give a fig about the working class so why is everyone sticking up for her, yes she let people buy their council houses but why was that, so that when they were old or infirm and needed to go into a care home they could sell their houses and pay for their own care, very devious

Grandad

Sorry to blow a hole in your theory but the sale of council houses, which started long before Mrs. Thatcher,was a means of reducing government debt. In a previous post i catalogued the economic case from 1950 on.
The Americans crucified the UK at the end of WW 2 with the onerous terms on the loans which we needed to rescue the country from a near bankrupt state.
Successive governments kept on borrowing until the IMF bailed the UK out in the 1976 with conditions which included the sell off of state owned assets.
Since the early 70's the Treasury has looked at selling off anything with value and whichever party was in power at the time the sales would have gone ahead.
The general understanding of national events is not helped by the duplicity of politicians of all colours.
Today's issue of Private Eye carries an expose of Andy Burnham highlighting his authorisation of aspects of the NHS whilst he was Health Minister. Now he condemns the same thing.

I will add that the sinking of the Belgrano was to prevent it from attacking our vulnerable Task Force.


From all the information available, it was concluded that the carrier and the Belgrano group were engaged in a classic pincer movement against the Task Force.It was therefore decided that British forces should be able to attack any Argentine naval vessel on the same basis as agreed previously for the carrier.

It was proven beyond doubt that the Belgrano was heading for the Falklands and not returning to it's home base. Major David Thorp, of our secret signals interception section proved this, as it was he and other Govt agencies that intercepted the Argentine naval communications in late April 1982 ordering the Belgrano and it's escorts to a grid reference within the exclusion zone. It was sank by two torpedoes from HMS Conqueror, a hunter killer sub of her Majesties RN. Well done that crew! The Belgrano 'was outside' the exclusion zone at the time of sinking but she was on a war footing. In recent years the Argentine navy has accepted that the sinking of the Belgrano was a legitimate act of war. When the British lion roars the world knows of it!
