Yeah the mines were real good, draining £1billion per year (how much would that be in todays money, £12 billion maybe?) from taxpayers money, great idea to keep it going... it took a real leader to put an end to it, not an unelected dimwit like we have now...
And your saying Labour supports British industry... that's the funniest thing I have heard in a while, did the £100million loan MG-Rover asked for which the government denied them (maybe because they were British owned, and not foreign owned?), to ensure they could continue operating until completion of the SAIC merger conveniently slip your mind? New Labour effectively killed the British
car industry in one go with that stupid, mindless decision, and knocked 6,000+ onto the dole in the process.
The only industry New Labour have helped, is greedy good-for-nothing bankers, who have got rich quick with the help of Gordon Brown, whilst the rest of us taxpayers suffer the fallout of the disaster they created... If Robin Hood were alive today, New Labour would have arrowes flying towards them.
And since you seem to want to look at History
, ill give you one name to consider... Denis Healey. It does indeed seem that History
is repeating itself, they say that lightning doesnt strike twice, you try telling that to the Labour party!
If he had any balls, Brown would be at the palace putting parliament into dissolution, but he wouldnt even win the confidence of his own party, nevermind the British public.
