I think Thatcher's economic policy was founded on oil. North Sea oil first came on stream in 1979 and of course it was like a bottomless pit of money. It wouldn't work today because oil is not what it was and all our industry has gone, along with everything that could be sold off.
Stand up, or give up.

I never agreed with her politics but I believe she did care for this country. I have admiration for anyone from a humble background who raises themself by their own efforts. That does require a certain ruthlessness.

I have never been a fan of the Tories, and I hated Thatcher BUT, I did have a lot of admiration for the woman.

She must have been special to get where she did as a woman back in the 80's. She made the country better for the likes of me but a damned sight worse for plenty of others.
