Purusha said:Being the son of an NCB maintenance man, and seeing close up what Thatcher did to the miners in the 80's makes it pretty-much impossible for me to ever think about considering voting Conservative - whoever their leader happens to be.
Monkey Do said:I don't really understand that logic, it was a couple of decades ago and things have moved on a bit, and guess what Thatcher isn't even in charge of the conservatives any more.
Or are the current labour government still driving around in clapped out mini's while taxing you 90p in every pound? (actually forget that last point, it won't be long).
Perhaps the Conservatives just need to change their name and then everyone will vote for them?
Purusha said:Are you trying to tell me that all the Conservative Party members who supported Thatcher in the 80's are now six feet under or something?
Watch the next Tory Party conference. They may have a "young" figurehead, but just count the blue rinse hair dos in the audience.
Unless you suffered (or at least saw things close up) under that 80's regime the way my family and friends did, you've no f*cking idea.
Being caught between Scargill & Thatcher was utter misery.
BTW - I'm no 'New Labour' supported either.
Barclay (Dark Angel) said:Gotta be honest with you dude, I don't think that makes one tiny scrap of difference. It's still prohibited, and as we all know prohibition is profoundly damaging, and simply doesn't work.
He'll just be tinkering with it, to no effect whatsoever.
