Thread Name: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
Subject: RE: BS: Brexit 'Take Back Control' D Cummings
”BWM always blames the fact that about 75% of cars on our roads before we went in were of British manufacture and now they're not - on being the result of our lousy government.”

That’s a lie, Al, as you very well know. Disagree with me by all means, but don’t demean yourself by stooping to barefaced lies.

What I’ve actually said - on several occasions - is that the decline of British industry was due to a complex set of circumstances, amongst which were...

1) Poor industrial relations
2) Under-investment by businesses
3) Short-sighted, complacent managements who believed that the customers would always ‘buy British’, no matter the quality (or lack of it) of the product
4) During the Thatcher years, a government policy which was designed to destroy TU power.

”But what complexion of government could have made it work. We've had everything from Wilson, who had bona fide communists (with the Spycatcher gang waging war against them) right up to Thatcher who was just a bit right of Mussolini.”

And if that’s the case, exactly how was it the fault of the ECM/EEC/EC/EU?

You’re a victim of your own prejudices, reinforced by the lies of Dom & Dumber, and the cabal of tax-dodging multi-millionaires driving and controlling the entire Brexit campaign.
