Thatcher - When we became a totalitarian state in the 1980s


Recommended Posts

Now i know there are many a Thatcher lover on here but i cant stand the witch.

But for me then slippery slope of turning into a full on police state started under her watch.

Remember as a kid watching the New Age Travellers getting battered for living a life outside what the establishment told them. This was not long after the miners were battered by the plod on her orders.

Then it was people going to raves.

In 1990 her Government passed the Entertainment Act which saw increased penalties for hosting raves.

Followed by Major bringing in the Criminal justice and public order act, which meant no more fun if the Tories had their way.

Just seems to have got stricter and stricter ever since to get to the point where we now live in a totalitarian nightmare.

Thatcher, like so many other 'beasts' hated by the left, is hated by them for the wrong reasons. They hate her because she broke the excessive power of the unions which was a corrupt cabal turnin

Well the miners were happy beating those up who wanted to work.if anything the unions created thatcher .the country was sick of being held to rand some by unions they ran the country basicly.she was t

The last proper Conservative leader. Small government, personal responsibilty, butting out of people's lives, rewarding hard work. I have no problem with any of that.

Its about to get worse, watch the US follow the Turkish roadmap, if they pull it off we will be next.

Thatcher was nothing compared to what is to come.

Well tbf, only scabs. 

Yes when people don't agree with you or do things you don't agree with it's very easy to consider them as non-human and unworthy of any consideration. If that's an acceptable way of thinking, then Thatcher's actions were 100% acceptable as well, can't have it both ways.

The milk stuff was going away before she took over but, all the same, I for one was happy when it finally finished. Being made by a fucking witch of a teacher to drink my half pint of warm, semi-rancid milk in the middle of the summer of 76 and the promptly running to the bogs to chuck it back up is one of the defining memories of my childhood. 
 

 

Eh? It finished way before 76 where I was at school - about 72 or 73 I think. You had milk privilege! (even if it didn't feel like it :D )

There was not enough cheap coal to keep going. Globalisation made sure of that. And the EU not allowing us to subsidize Industry.

Mrs Thatcher said: there is no such thing as public money.

I will paraphrase as there is no such thing as a free school dinner.

We got milk until I left primary school. Conservative council maybe.

You can’t blame thatcher for that .no doubt you would welcome a thatcher nowadays to get to grips with benifits

Forgot how much I used to fancy Jan Leeming when I was a teenager.

We need a smaller government. All these local council staff quangos and made up nonsense organisations need culling.

 

Was labour that loves big goverment and goverment that can be mummy or daddy or indeed big brother and aided dismantling of the nuclear family something thatcher loved

Hmmm, I must be thinking of the wrong hot summer in that case. I’m very sure we had school milk into the 70s though - could have been because it was a military one.

I had milk at primary school, which means it was still going into the late 70's.

Late '60's for secondary school (did anyone actually drink it?).,'71 for older primary school children, '77 for the youngest (up to 7/8)..  IIRC some councils/schools kept on for a little while after, but it was pretty much over by '78.
