Thatcher may well have a paranoid hatred of working class people, who knows. I'm just glad she's gone. However working class people in the 70s and 80s were no better served by corrupt and incompetant unions and a spineless out of control labour party. As I said above, it was the UDM that defeated the miners not Thatcher. I live near the Notts coalfields, I collected money for the miners even though I always believed that Scargill was a lunatic. Kinnock, Smith & Blair brought realism to the labour party and have crushed the idiotic left wing fanatics that were once so vocal. I see from this board that there are a few left but they're no more than a bad joke these days.
Ramble on comrades, meanwhile real people will get the job done.
Still proud to carry the card.
