She won three general elections back to back. You can't do that on upper class votes alone.
Reagan was a strong leader that helped bring us out of a recession, made us strong militarily and didnt take any shyt from the commies. yes he was a total wanker:3eyes:
To be fair, it's miserable work that meaningfully shortens the lives of those doing it, along with making the lives they do live of lesser quality.
I have no problem with them demanding a lot of compensation for that.
And I mean A LOT.
Besides, in a free market, they should be able to set a price for which they sell their labor, and the companies can choose if they want to purchase that labor, or look for another source of that labor (hiring replacement workers).
She will be remembered for squashing football hooliganism and retaking god forsaken Pacific rock. It;s that Pacific rock that got her re-elected.
Her legacy is equal to that of Ronald Reagan - financial deregulation, crushing unions and making the poor poorer.
She made London the world capital of financial crime and terrorism.
EDIT: LOL@Pacific. I meant that other... ocean
Bashing a leader and bashing a countries people are two different things.You never ever hear me criticise the US about the politics ever.
I dont live there so what would i know?I know some people do who dont live there.
The only thing i say about the USA is that everything is much cheaper than over here and it is the truth, nothing wrong with that.
Also wasnt Reagan a Cowboy?
cheaper!?!?... I was in Manhattan and the prices of everything is waaaaaaay more than over here!!!!
except on Canal Street......
First of all your in Scotland and not in England so your prices may be different.
So my 690 at the time of release cost me $1400 yet people in the USA were buying for $1000.
Hardware is more expensive in the USA end of.
Titan is $1000
Uk price £900 converted to US dollar $1378.98
So its more expensive in the USA? How you figure that one out?
Ive also been to America myself in 2008 Disneyland for 3 weeks, Nasa etc.
Im aware of the prices and its cheaper in the USA.
LMAO...... I'm English and Scotland is just the same as England, just a different accent its still GBP and part of the UK.....
I wasn't speaking for the entire USA, I know a lot of things are cheaper, just saying the things i was buying in Manhattan were more expensive than here...
wow.... you're really passionate about this bro!!
Not much i can say here, i was only little when she was in power. plus i loved in another country I cant say ive heard anything good about her from people.
But at the end of a day, she was a human being. RIP.
George W Bush is one funny character, the guy should have become a comedian! President isnt his role lol
Everything is expensive in New York it is the highest cost of living state besides California in the US (both run by libs go figure) if you had visited say Florida or Texas you would see what Veteran was talking about.
Ding Dong the witch is dead
Which ol' witch?
The wicked witch.
Yeah well i never been to Scotland so i dont know the rates thats why i was unsure.
Im not Passionate about it im more pissed off that we get ripped off so much over here through Tax and Vat,( To house the immigrants on free handouts) Something that Thatcher contributed too.
The labour government before her spent billions that it borrowed there was rubbish piled high in the streets. A lot of people were working a three day week because of no money in the business. Anyone see a resemblance to what the labour government did this time they were in power? Oh and best of all The labour government before her bought in Child benefit which now costs us £11 Billion a year and is paid even if the family has a £50k income. She did what any intelligent person would do cut the unions power and reduced spending you want to blame someone for stealing your milk blame Labour for spending the money that could have bought milk for your grand children...
He's overrated, as is Maggie. USSR was crumbling from within.
English - Anglo
Scots - Celts
Different peoples altogether, quicker we get independence again the better./
Thatcher in spitting image.
Sums it up really.
couple of things. Prices in Scotland and England are not the same. Try living in Hampshire and look at property prices, council tax, eating out prices, drinking out prices etc. these every day expenses are a lot higher down here than anywhere above the midlands. And again, you can't be comparing Manhattan to somewhere in Scotland. Not a fair comparison. Overall, the cost of living is quite a bit lower in the US.
What a great reason to be independent.
I wouldn't wish anyone dead, but I detested that woman. I also find the 8 million stirling state funeral she's getting to be absolutely disgusting. Her kids are sticking rich, more so now they've inherited her estate. A large portion of the UK despised her. So why on earth are the public footing the bill?
If you lived in the USA you would probably have a different opinion on Reagan, I really do not know about Thatcher which is why I refrained in making any comments at all about her, and who gives a rats ass if the USSR was crumbling within?
