Thatcher legacy

People forget that Mrs Thatcher was famous for being very strong and not for turning – that never made for a good Prime Minister.

In freeing the City of London of independent controls, she fostered the greed and recklessness of the last 30 years, which has greatly contributed to the current banking crisis.

She so wrongly made it clear that as a manufacturing nation we were finished – leaving the Germans to rub their hands in glee.

Yes, she took on the unions because weak British management had allowed the unions to get way with murder. But, she then held a vendetta against the British working man.

It is too late for party politics, we need a change of approach if we are ever to return to a strong economy like the Germans now have.
