I never thought I would see the day that a Labour Prime Minister (a Labour Prime Minister!!), would welcome Margaret Thatcher to 10 Downing Street. The woman who did more than anyone else to destroy the labour movement and the working classes. The woman who wrecked the industrial manufacturing base of the country, created a service economy dependent on foreign imports, smashed the unions, wasted huge North Sea oil revenues to maintain millions of unemployed, sold off state assets into the ownership of foreign powers, renounced the concept of society, created a social underclass the like of which not seen since the Victorian era, destroyed the regions and ran economics and political policies which favoured her south east power base. The list of her economic failures and vindictive assaults on working people is endless.
The misery she wrought was total and it is an insult to the memory of the people whose sweat and toil built both the country and Labour movement, notwithstanding the present party membership and support. I am not bothered that the Prime Minister is playing politics designed to embarrass and undermine Tory support. It is enough that the Labour government has maintained and developed Tory policies but to hob-nob with the woman who tried to break the Labour Party itself is simply too much to tolerate. This is, I am afraid, the straw that broke the camel’s back!
