    The war on unions was declared three decades ago, M. Thatcher V tthe Miners Union…
    ALL unions have been very very quiet since then, they failed at that point to realise that ALL Unions were under threat not just the one and also therefore failed to call a general strike across the country.
    The success that the conservatives enjoyed at the winning of that war was to sell off ALL large nationalised industries bar the post office, the sale of which PAID for the apparent “boom times” of the eighties.
    It was to anyone with the slightest view of the years ahead a false economy and was ONLY going to fail over the years as the money ran out.
    WORSE than that though was a change brought about that our economy should be based on banking and third party services rahter than actual production of goods… that in turn raises the problem with leaving the EU…. WE CAN’T… when we joined the EU we were able to supply most of the products and food we needed HERE, but after the sale of our manufacturing base we do not have that anymore and have become too dependant on other countries…

    The final problem and the most worrying of all is that the cons the libs and the labs are ALL infact, CONSERVATIVE in thought and action.

    Ukip?….erm…yeah…they are what exactly?…..reactionary?….yep that’ll do.
