On this day in 1983 Margaret Thatcher's Conservative Party wins a landslide second term election victory, taking 397 seats to Labour's 209. She calls the election almost a year earlier than required, believing public opinion to be strongly in favour of the Government as a result of Britain's victory in the Falklands War and a divided Labour Party. Two future Labour Prime Ministers, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, both enter Parliament for the first time at this election.

For all you out there who value your NHS, please read the following. (Dr Philipp Lahma Whitford will be speaking at the Indy Girls night on 18th of June in the GLO centre. If you have any questions for her please come along) VOTING Yes the only way to save NHS from privatisation says Dr Philippa Whitford I have many reasons for voting Yes on 18 September but key among them is to protect the achievements of the NHS in Scotland and obtain the powers to improve the health and wellbeing of all our citizens. Contrary to common perception, the NHS in Scotland has always had a degree of autonomy and since devolution in 1999 has been under the direct control of the Scottish Parliament. Since then, the system of competing hospital trusts, introduced by Margaret Thatcher and revisited as foundation hospitals by Tony Blair, has been abandoned in favour of collaboration and co-operation. While the NHS in England is being privatised, it is NHS Scotland that has returned to the traditional philosophy of a unified, publ ...

[work in progress - your suggestions would be appreciated] The question is WHY? (I'll come to that in a minute) Depressingly often these days the argument is reduced to "Alex Bloody Salmond". Okay - let's play ... the blame game. Is it 'cause he is black? No. Don't be stupid and even if he was that would just be blatant rascism. Is it because he is a woman? Ditto (sexist) Did he abuse your children, or steal your toys when you were younger? Of course he didn't. He didn't even steal ... sorry, 'reclaim' the Stone of Destiny. Did he start an illegal war? Nope. Tony Blair did though, as too, one might argue, did Margaret Thatcher. In fact starting illegal wars is more the domain of your American President although Westminster has certainly taken up the mantle and run with it. Did he abolish the student grant? What about student course fees? Has he closed any libraries? Nope - here in Scotland Education is something we take an enormous pride in; in fact it is this very attitude that has created such debate re ...

As the debate over Scottish independence hots up, it is becoming clear that some voters in Scotland are worried that a yes vote in September will condemn the English to never-ending rule by the Tories. While I appreciate their concern, especially on St George's Day, the argument that Scots must vote no in order to save the English from neoliberalism simply doesn't add up. Since the Second World War, the votes of the Scottish electorate have only been decisive on three occasions – the general elections of 1964, 1974 and 2010 – each time preventing the Tories from winning a tiny majority. Scottish votes would not have stopped Margaret Thatcher, nor denied Tony Blair his three election wins. In fact, there is an argument to be made that the Scottish electorate played an important part in entrenching the neoliberal agenda at Westminster. Safe in the knowledge that the majority of Scots would always vote Labour, Tony Blair felt confident enough to move his party to the centre ground and embrace the free ma ...
So, I've done my own version of a Left-Right scale of Labour leaders since WWII, numbered 1-10, where 1 is Michael Foot and 10 is Margaret Thatcher. Two of the most polar opposite politicians that you'll ever see. Tony Blair: 8 Hugh Gaitskell: 7 James Callaghan: 7 Gordon Brown: 5 John Smith: 5 Ed Miliband: 4 Neil Kinnock: 4 Clement Attlee: 3 Harold Wilson: 3 Michael Foot: 1 What do you guys think about this?
The long and awkward gestation of the EU is charted with its successes and failures described in some depth and detail. The Chapter on 'Why de Gaulle Kept Britain Out' is illuminating and the Chapter on 'The Real Deceit of Edward Heath' is profoundly shocking. The trials and tribulations of Margaret Thatcher, John Major and Tony Blair are depicted in colourful detail that I found fascinating and informative. I had always been perplexed by some EU related events and this book painted in many missing parts of the picture for me. I would recommend this book to everyone and in particular to the so called Euro-philes who may find it a blinding light on the road to a better balanced understanding. It certainly should be placed in every public library and place of learning in order to give everyone an opportunity to discover how they are governed. If there is a text which puts forward the contrary view with such cogent clarity I would like to see it on the shelf too but most Euro-philes seem oddly silent. Commen ...
People go on about our best and worst Prime Ministers. In my view these are ours. The worst: David Cameron, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Margaret Thatcher, Edward Heath, Anthony Eden, Neville Chamberlain. Best: Benjamin Disraeli, William Gladstone, Winston Churchill, Harold Wilson, I suppose, who at least refused to send British troops to the Vietnam war.
Here is my take on Cameroons cushy job:- It is generally considered that running a country is a difficult job. Margaret Thatcher was reduced to tears. Tony Blair withered before our eyes. David Cameron is going grey at a rapid rate of knots. But I don’t buy it. In fact, the more I think about it, the more that being Prime Minister sounds like the kind of gig where Del Boy would sip an extravagant cocktail, grin and say: “Cushty! Very cushty!” Let’s consider the evidence, shall we? •At a time when half the nation is underwater and the good voters of Middle England are forced to re-enact The Poseidon Adventure on a daily basis, it turns out your river was one of the few to be dredged •You can promise to reform politics, and then fail to reform politics •You may need to put up with two father-in-laws, but one gets to plant publicly-subsidised wind farms on his land and the other is invited on a publicly-subsidised trade trip to China •When a fuse blows, electricity engineers will be diverted ...
Political grandees Tony Blair, Margaret Thatcher, Paddy Ashdown and John Major have been immortalised in oil or bronze, paid for out of public money.
(A version of this article appeared in the Financial Times on January 9, 2014 who say power is all that counts in politics forget that power without ideas is just improvisation. It is ideas that enable leaders to impose a direction on events. Margaret Thatcher’s death last year reminds us what it felt like to be led by a conviction politician. Some hated the UK Prime Minister’s direction, but no one doubted there was one. No one doubted that her success helped produce a conviction politician on the progressive side: Tony Blair. In the past 15 years, few politicians have imposed their will on our times. We can blame the current crop of leaders for that, but the deeper cause seems to lie in the waning power of ideas. Politics is more polarised than ever, but behind the party stockades, diminishing bands of believers repeat partisan incantations that no longer describe the world, let alone change it. We are living through the slow decay of the two master narratives – conservative an ...

You know what grinds my gears? Politicians! So I just heard David Cameron wants to spend £15m on a museum to Margaret Thatcher. Who does he think he is using tax payers money for their vanity project? Let alone we have no public funded museum to Churchill or other historic Prime Ministers, the fact he has the audacity to think just because he respected her that we all did! Where does he get off justifying it by saying that she was an important person in our history - yeah just like Tony Blair and the less said about that useless, Teflon shouldered "person" the better. This is why people don't feel proud to be British anymore because the view of rich money grabbing vote scroungers like him are never usually those of the people but them trying to justify how they are making the country better by ruining it. And this goes for all parties too - Liberals - remember the no uni fees debacle? All parties - the expenses scandal, the corruption, the wars! Jeez - I am gonna get off my soap box now before it gets to ...

So Labour is the friend of the working class, the under privileged and the elderly? Not any more! Johann Lamont, has set up a cuts commission to get rid of free bus passes, prescriptions and free personal care. Trust her? I don't Ed Balls wants to raise retirement age. Trust him? I don't. Margaret Thatcher scrapped the link between state pensions and earnings in 1981, and neither Labour’s Tony Blair nor Gordon Brown reversed that policy. Nor did former Chancellor Alistair Darling, the leader of the No campaign, who received a standing ovation at last week’s Scottish Tory conference. How can ANYONE believe these Unionist politicos actually mean what they say when they say we're better off together. What they SHOULD say is ENGLAND is better off with Scotland. Their own ruddy statisticians say so!

Tony Blair says murder of Lee Rigby PROVES 'there is a problem within Islam' Ex-PM says 'the ideology behind his murder is profound and dangerous'
JOHANNESBURG, May 26 – Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe criticises Nelson Mandela for being too soft on whites, in a documentary giving a rare and intimate look into the family life of one of Africa’s longest serving and most vilified leaders. In a cosy lunch setting with his wife and children, the 89-year old speaks on a wide range of issues from his controversial hold on power, to his relationships with former British premiers Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher. The two-and-a-half hour interview, described in detail by British and South African media ahead of its airing, shows the usually bellicose and sharp-tongued Mugabe as a loving family man. Dali Tambo, the son of South African anti- apartheid hero Oliver Tambo, produced the documentary, which will be broadcast on South African public television next Sunday. In the programme, Tambo dines with Mugabe’s family at his wife Grace’s dairy farm. The interview comes just months before crucial general elections in the country which in recent decade ...
This documentary is a must-see! From a review of the documentary Mugabe: Villain or Hero: So where did it all go wrong? It seems that was when he decided to make the call for ''Zimbabwe for Zimbabweans''. When he had to free his country and people of British rule he was suddenly cast as the evil dictator. In the now infamous Lancaster House agreement, Robert Mugabe and his supporters were pressured into signing and agreeing to wait ten years before instituting land reform. At the time, an agreement under Margaret Thatcher's government had promised Zimbabwe that 10 years after signing the Lancaster House agreement, Zimbabwe land would be handed back to the people of Zimbabwe from the white farm and land owners. However once Thatcher was ousted and a Labour government took over the UK, they reneged on the agreement whilst Mugabe had played everything by the book. The then letter from Tony Blair's cabinet member Clare Short, told Mugabe in no certain terms, that "I should make it clear that we do not accept ...

Business tycoon Sir Jimmy Goldsmith would have been 80 today, had he lived. He was a well known corporate raider and asset stripper (not that I ever saw him take his clothes off). He had a string of women and coined the phrase 'When a man marries his mistress, he creates a vacancy.' He stood against then cabinet minister David Mellor as a euroseptic candidate in the 1997 general elections, giving him a spiteful slow hand clap when David lost his seat in parliament. Two months later Jimmy died of Pancreatic Cancer aged 64. He got eulogies from both Tony Blair and Margaret Thatcher.

The New Archbishop and the state of the church The Telegraph View – 2nd Feb 2013 Some thoughts and comments “…..The new Archbishop takes up his post when the relevance of religion is under question more than at any time in our history. The Church, along with many other institutions, has gradually been squeezed out of our lives as greater emphasis has been placed on values and rights than on responsibilities and duties. Recent politicians have been complicit in this aggressive secularism – even when, as with Tony Blair, they have themselves been believers. It is hard to imagine a Prime Minister taking office today and reciting a prayer on the threshold of Downing Street, as did Margaret Thatcher in 1979. David Cameron confesses that his religious faith comes and goes like “Magic FM in the Chilterns”; and it was insisted that Mr Blair did not “do God”. Prof Dawkins described religion as nothing more than charlatanry, because it was “a phoney substitute for an explanation” of who we are a ...
Trade unions in the United Kingdom A rally by UNISON in support of better terms and conditions of work for their members Trade unions in the United Kingdom were first decriminalised under the recommendation of a Royal Commission in 1867, which agreed that the establishment of the organisations was to the advantage of both employers and employees. Legalised in 1871, the Trade Union Movement sought to reform socio-economic conditions for working men in British industries, and the Unions' search for this led to the creation of a Labour Representation Committee which effectively formed the basis for today's Labour Party, which still has extensive links with the Trade Union Movement in Britain. Margaret Thatcher's governments weakened the powers of the unions in the 1980s, in particular by making it more difficult to strike legally, and some within the British trades union movement criticised Tony Blair's Labour government for not reversing some of Thatcher's changes. Most British unions are members of the TUC ...

Watching Iron Lady and Margaret Thatcher wrote to all the familys that lost solders in Falklands WELL Tony Blair sent us to Iraq
Debate? More like consensus. Consensus on the War on Drugs, consensus to ignore the existence of the Palestinians, consensus on the USA PATRIOT police state, consensus on Guantanamo, consensus that the only way to deal with Iran is all stick and no carrot. It reminds me of what Margaret Thatcher said when she was asked what her proudest legacy was, and she answered "Tony Blair." I thought Arundhati Roy was way out of line in 2004 when she said Kerry represented Bushism without Bush. But time has proved her right. Vote for Obama, or vote for Romney. Either way Bush and Cheney win.

Episode 4 of the thick of it reminds me a bit of Gordon Brown and Tony Blair or the Tory cabinet and Margaret Thatcher.
Imagine what was reported here is to be duplicated for our ExPMs. This is how the British treating their Ex PM? Almost 22 years after she was forced from office by her own MPs, we still find it difficult to say farewell to Margaret Thatcher. The T-shirts about dancing on her grave that went on sale at the TUC conference in Brighton, and the launch within the Tory Party of a group devoted to her brand of conservatism, are testimony to that. It is true that only a few T-shirts were sold before they were withdrawn from the market because the trade unions and the Labour Party were embarrassed by the tastelessness of their message. This suggests that hatred of Thatcher is not quite as widespread as it once was. My own guess – readers may care to correct me on this – is that T-shirts about dancing on Tony Blair's grave would have sold a great deal better. For Blair was not just the man who took us into Iraq as George Bush's junior partner. He was also the man who forced the Labour Party to accept most of wh ...
Who was President before Barack Obama ? Tony Blair? and no Margaret Thatcher was not our first Prime Minister.

I think because the Olympics opening ceremony celebrated the UK's role in driving the Industrial Revolution so much, the closing ceremony should be themed around Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair. A giant robotic Thatcher could roam around the stadium destroying British manufacturing symbols and oppressing the poor while dispensing cash to bankers, estate agents and liquidity traders. Meanwhile a giant Tony Blair could systematically mow down the nurses from the opening ceremony symbolising the destruction of the National Health Service. For a finale, effigies of George Bush & Tony Blair could declare war on all the other countries symbolised by stealing and burning their flags. Just a thought.

Jennifer Saunders to play "sexual Margaret Thatcher" in BBC3 sitcom New comedy Dead Boss casts the Ab Fab star as an unhinged prison governor Share this episode Written By Paul Jones 4:05 PM, 20 February 2012 Absolutely Fabulous star Jennifer Saunders is to play a prison governor described as a "sexual Margaret Thatcher" in new BBC3 sitcom Dead Boss. Penned by Pulling's Sharon Horgan and stand-up comic Holly Walsh, the show stars Horgan as Helen, a prison inmate falsely convicted of murdering her boss. According to Walsh, Saunders plays the psychotic head of the jail as "a woman of culture and elegance who finds playing mind games with guards and prisoners to be good for her morale." And if comparisons with the former PM are accurate, Saunders has had some practice for the role. Last year she played Thatcher as a Bette Davis-style caricature in The Comic Strip's The Hunt for Tony Blair. Walsh said Dead Boss was influenced by "comedy films that went for big jokes, like Police Squad, Stir Crazy and The Othe ...

Why didn't the UK want to belong to the eurozone? Debate over joining the single currency was fierce. Margaret Thatcher, Conservative Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990, was anti-euro. The Tories remained largely euroskeptic under Thatcher's successor, John Major. Then came Black Wednesday, the day in 1992 on which Britain was forced to halt its membership of euro's precursor, the European Exchange Rate Mechanism. Black Wednesday was seen as proof a monetary union and European currency could not work, says Hans-Joachim Voth, research professor of economics at Barcelona's Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Adding to the political humiliation, Black Wednesday is also remembered as the day which enabled investor George Soros to collect an estimated $1 billion in profits from betting against the pound. Tony Blair's Labour government, which succeeded Major's Conservative government, was in favor of joining the euro, but only if certain economic tests were met. They weren't, and the UK stayed out. Blair reiterated his sup ...
United Kingdom seeks to derail Zim-EU dialougue. Tendai Mugabe Senior Reporter Britain has come under fire for raising petty issues, including an arms deal executed in the 1980s, to undermine the Zimbabwe-EU dialogue. The arms deal was done before the November 1997 fallout with the New Labour government of former premier Tony Blair. The Zimbabwe-EU dialogue seeks to find ways of thawing relations that became frosty after the bloc imposed illegal economic sanctions on Zimbabwe in 2002. The British government loaned Zimbabwe 35 million pounds to buy Hawk fighter jets between 1989 and 1992. Although Zimbabwe has since repaid the loan, Britain wants companies involved in the deal to explain why British taxpayers’ funds ended up helping Zimbabwe buy the jets. Zimbabwe bought five Hawk fighter jets and 1 030 police Land-Rovers, and Britain claims these were used to suppress dissent. A story published in the British newspaper, The Guardian, says managers of BAE Systems and BP would be asked to account for hund ...

Just watched PBS Frontline/Murdoch Scandal - talk about 'wag the tail'. Sacrilege!.. Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair, David Cameron and many others, did whatever Rupert, (a regular patron of 10 Downing St.), ordered - to enlarge his news monopoly - even the police were in on it, and that's only the U.K. side of it! There were 1,000's of phone hackings to avoid having to cite sources. Murdoch bragged of having incriminating photo evidence, on every public figure. But voila! karma has arrived, everyone's abandoning ship & there's dissention among his heirs - just like a Hercules Poiroit ending. :-s
hmm mostly about Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair, and for the themes racism and xenophobia
