    Camoron is a child of Thatcher and he is doing his best to repeat the same mistakes as Thatcher did. Reducing spending is turning the UK into a downwards economic spiral.

    My only comment is, if this woman hadn’t decimated heavy industry how much of it would be left today? The writing was on the wall we could not compete with the rising countries of the world. This was due to the fact their overheads were far less. How many mines would be left now? with the green lobby, I bet not many.

    Thatcher was the grownup in the room who knew that socialism didn’t work and was willing to pull the plug on the industries that were proving her right. Small wonder that victimization-minded Scots hated her; she had balls enough to say out loud what they haven’t yet admitted even to themselves: your labor is worth what other people are willing to pay for it and not a penny more.
