Pret where is your brain son? It was a decision based on her waning political career at the time and did the trick at the expense of our lives. If I'm wrong perhaps you'd enlighten me as to what use the Falklands are to us. Admit it...its the sheep innit?!!
I see we still have the small people of low interlect on the board.
How old where they in 79 I do wonder.
Maggei saved UK from the mess that the politicians of the 70's and earlier had got the UK into.
Wilson and Heath pair should be dug up and their bones burned.
Maggeis methods where not nice and comfortable, they where extreme and brutal and she threw a generation on the slag heap.
But she laid the foundation on which others have made their reputations.
All PM post Maggei owe their 'Sucesss' to Her.
All have wanted to be associated with her and her style.
Until the Torys find a suitable succesor to Maggei they will remain the party of Opposition.
Born & brought up labour saw the light.
Oh and don't bother picking me up for spelling and grammer, its the tactic of little people.
I take it you never lived in Britain between 74 and 79 then?
What you obviously mean is she steered the country away from a socialist state dictated to by the unions and allowed those that could, to earn money as is the want of a capitalist country. If youre good enough, you get the rewards.
Dont mention the miners either. Their unions destroyed themselves by ensuring that they priced themselves out of the market and when they were given the option of being effective, they tried to push their luck. They lost.
I agree she was a bit of a mad old bint but she inherited several years of shite from the opposition's destruction of the country. You'll find it was Labour who set the precedence of annihilating the armed forces.
She was a leader at least. Unlike the lap dogs we've had since.
