Hmmm, Ed Milliband said in the papers today that it stems from HIS Parties Policies over many years. It has Nothing todo with Thatcher. Her Years were spent rebuilding the Mess Left by Labour yet again. She built a very strong Britain. Labour blew the lot. Under Thatcher we could protect the Falklands and all the Wars at once. Labour ended that when they had blown the kitty. So stop blaming Thatcher, Labour had 4 innings and screwed us BIG time.
