You're quoting the Mail and saying the Beeb is biased?

The BBC should of course be impartial.
In many of the television and radio news bulletins it appeared that Margret Thatcher was on trial and the case for the prosecution was gathering force.


To show Thatcher was anything other than a bitchc*** would be biased.


link?


.....awaits link from The Ciabatta Bread famine of Chislehurst circa 1987....

Was there? Pray tell me about it Quentin Crisp.


Nick - I can't really be bothered to read all of this but do you really live in the 'workers paradise' of Chislehurst?


Indeed Matt...


That is one of the funniest things I have ever read on this site.

Yep, I got a key worker grant towards my mortgage. Thanks Tony.
Is there a problem with a socialist living in a Tory area?


No not at all. I wouldn't mind one of these though...http://www.chislehurst.co.uk/property/#/requested_page=1&sort_order=ASC&sort_by=price&i=1


Apologies

Nice gaffs. Way outta my league, my house cost about a tenth of the value of those...
No old money in the Hurst...


It's absolutely effing hilarious.

You, berating Thatcher and the Tory's, yet adopting Tory values and taking what you can in 'leg ups' in order to join the aspirational classes.

Enjoy your trip to Chiselhurst Strada.

Buying a house because the repayments are cheaper than exorbitant rents was a necessity rather than adopting Tory values.

Just because you have socialist values, in a capitalist society, doesn't mean you should live in a commune, anymore than it means you should have a 'proper' working class job.

I remember a old friend of mine saying it was hypocritical to get a well paid job, and be a socialist. Thats just the language of d**b f**ks.

There is no dignity in poverty.

One of these days, I would love to see a post from Jim that isn't having a swipe at another poster. Just a pipe dream though I fear


Ah come on Superfly I get it all the time from you guys don't get all po-faced please....


It just gets a little tiresome Jim. It does seem like it's 95% of your posts


Ok know problem, but I can say the same about a lot of other posters on here as well (wink wink)...

Quote nickgusset at 10 Apr 2013 10.48am

She sold off our industry and spunked the money.


What industry? we were sodding well bankrupt (all but)!

Yes she privatised British Gas etc but that's hardly selling off our industry. British Steel was shagged with Labour only keeping Steel works open for political reasons.

You make me laugh, you moan about people believing the media but all you post is soundbites


Public debt in the 80's was below 50% of GDP, the EU set the maximum at 60% when Thatch signed the Maastricht treaty in 92, so by European terms we were well within acceptable limits. Hardly bankrupt. In fact, we embarked on building the welfare state when our debt was 247% of GDP after ww2, so that is a weak argument.


1970s
IMF Crisis - .9 Billion
Devaluation of the pound - potential .9 billion loan from the yanks
three day week
Power cuts
Red Robbo £200 million in lost production due to walkouts in a little over a year.
British Steel haemorrhaging money - over £800 million during the 70s, but that's OK because it kept the northerners happy.

Yep, evertything was just dandy when maggie took over.

But as you rightly say Nick in the 80s things were much better, I am glad that you acknowledge that



We were not bankrupt, which was your assertion.

If you read it correctly I also put (all but)


All but isnt even close though is it? Historically our debt to GDP ratio was (and still is) a lot lower than it has been for the last 250 years. So even to say all but bankrupt is complete tosh. The same bankrupt lie is being peddled by politicians of all parties now.


No it's not. We were a basket case, no one wanted to know us, if the unions hadn't been so intransient (sound familiar) Maggie wouldn't have had to or been able to be as aggressive in her approach.

I can't believe that you cannot accept that we were completely and utterly in the s***.

Not financially. I've conceded earlier in the thread that the unions were out of control, but we were not all but bankrupt, which is what you said.

Terms an conditions of employment. If you want me to sort out my own pension, give me a pay rise commensurate with the payments. Or don't you think those that work for the public should be looked after in old age?
Anyway, yer changing the subject.

Just heard Milliband, what a wormy c***, he should be unleashing the wrath on behalf of the millions who will never forgive her.

You should get the same state pension as the rest of us and your own personal plan if you want it.
