« Go Back

Little Bit Of Politics...
.
Gordan Brown and his secret lover, Maggie Thatcher. Go on. Picture that fat, gurning, one-eyed Jock giving Maggie one up the arse.

I'd just arrived in Oz and had no internet for a few weeks so totally missed the fact that a Labour Prime Minister invited that bat-faced harridan to tea at Number Ten. I mean, what-the-shuddering-fuck?

Had he forgotten the 80's? Had he forgotten what that bitch did to our coal, steel, ship-building and manufacturing industries? Had he forgotten that it was that twat who turned us from a manufacturing country into a Service Industry Nation specialising in finance and banking? That was a fucking smart move wasn't it Maggie? Remember that Gordan?

The wall-eyed spaz who now runs our country has his tongue so far up Thatchers arse that he can lick her tonsils - from the inside. To add insult to injury he's now planning a State Funeral for her. A State Funeral - as if she did something amazing for the country like winning a World War instead of shafting the country for generations to come.

And, while I'm on, Downing Street have totally knocked back my e-petition to have Maggie buried under a disco. It would save queuing for the millions of Labour voters who want to dance on her grave.

Listen you pathetic Porridge-Wog. One of the reasons that you're tanking at the polls is because you've sickened us sucking up to that handbag-weilding witch.

You might have forgotten where you came from, you hypocritical cunt, but we haven't.

And breath....

Cheers

Ooh now...

I can almost hear PJM rolling up his 'typing sleeves'.

Nothing I can say will be as good as what he does, so I'll just click and be on my way.

WOO YAY!
Fucking right on Legless!!!!

Summed up my feelings for the shrivelled up milk snatching cum bucket to the fucking letter!

Oh, and where in Oz are you / have u been?

I'm
In Melbourne.

Been to a few places in Queensland and a couple of towns in NSW. And a few more towns in Victoria.

When I finish the project I'm working on I'm going to take the choo-choo from Melbourne to Perth.

And I should be in Sidney at some point.

Cheers

Have you been to Warrnambool?
My old home town! Bit of a shithole, though. Especially when the wind from the knackers was blowing in the wrong direction.

Train to Perth is fun, if you like staring at desert for a couple of days. Has to be done, though.

I'll Be
traveling first class, have a stash of books and my digital SLR. I just love the idea of traveling coast to coast overland.

But I'll be flying back - I'm not an idiot..

There's just so much of Oz to see. I have to get up to the Top-End sometime.

And if I ever become rich I'm going to buy a boat and circumnavigate Oz. Take a year out.

I can dream...

Cheers

I had a similar dream
about buying a boat and circumnavigating the island I currently reside on. Then I remembered I live in England.

Did you see that documentary about the blokes that circumnavigated Oz on jet skis?

Planning a state funeral?
I didn't know she was dead.

I do want to be buried under a disco now though.

How old are you?

Great idea though not that I would go to that particular establishment.

New one on me.

Not sure Gord's too popular up the road nowadays, either.

I'm
a Geordie and lived in the Borders for a long time. A good mate of mine has a Scottish fiance and another mate of ours referred to her as a Porridge-Wog and it's just kind of stuck.

Can't click more than once...
I couldn't watch the clip on the news. With that woman standing outside the door of no 10 again.. I hadn't realised I felt so strongly...

Right that does it, I'm getting another job and saving for an Oz trip...

You, Sir
should be Prime Minister.

Nice one!

Correct
You are correct ! In most countries Thatcher and all that voted for her would have been set on fire for the pain caused.

Thatcher left 20 years ago

I feel there has been plenty to complain about since then.

I personally think that to vote in the present day based on something from that long ago is rather pointless and defeats the whole point of having elections every few years.

I'm not very keen on the labour PMs of the 1970's for example, but I accept that this was in the past and I make a reasonable balanceed decision on who to vote for by considering the policies put forward vs the general situation of the present day.

This is how democracy should work, it should not be based on long held grudges.

She had something though, what's the word....

ah yes,

Competence.
(, Mon 23 Feb 2009, 13:56, closed)
And
she stuck to her guns. I mean okay, they were pointed at the wrong people. But she stuck to them.

Ooh, also- by removing the mining industry she ensured that when the mines are re-openned (after the oil starts to run out and everyone says "Screw this envrionmental crap- I'm using coal till we can get some nukes running") they'll be ruined and utterly unsuitable for humans to work in.
Which is great news for me (working with ROVs all day).

Lets just hope the next gov't who stick to their guns have them pointed at the pricks who screw us over all the time...

Here we go again...
I refer you to my previous answer:
You don't know wtf you're on about.
Most of you aren't old enough to remember how she took a country that every year was having days with power blackouts because the miners were on strike for higher and higher pay and brought it back to economic stability.
(Yes, I know they had a shitty job, but I had relatives at the coalface who were earning about twice what office workers, nurses, teachers, etc, were earning.)
Not everything she did was brilliant, but then she had to bring in things that a previous labour government had ratified through law. The poll tax for example... but I suppose you don't want to hear that.
No government is perfect, look at the present one and then work out how much extra you spend on food and petrol each week since last year, and the government can't be blamed for everything.
Talk to people in their 50's and above about the 'winter of discontent', ask them the first word that comes to mind if you say 'Fords at Dagenham', and ask them about how the unions used to hold the country to ransom.

I was one of the people who 'sufferred' under Maggie. I was unemployed for some of her time in office.
But when you can stay on your PC 24/7 rather than knowing your electric will be cut off for 4 hours a day, 7 days a week, don't tell me you've got it bad.

BTW: It's Gordon and breathe.....

I Beg To Differ
I'm 48 and remember the bitch all too well.

And may I suggest that your memory is at fault .

"Not everything she did was brilliant, but then she had to bring in things that a previous labour government had ratified through law. The poll tax for example... but I suppose you don't want to hear that."

But I *do* - I'm all ears. I'd LOVE to hear where you got the idea that the Labour Government brought in the Poll Tax. All those meetings, all those marches I went on must have been a waste of time.

As I recall it was first proposed in the Conservative Manifesto of 1979 under the Abolition Of Rates and again the the Manifesto of 1987 but then called Paying For Local Government. It was brought in first in Jockland in financial year 89/90 then in England and Wales in 90/91.

So tell me again how it was all a Labour idea?

And I don't need to talk to people in their 50's about the Winter of Discontent - I lived it.

And here's another name for you to conjure with. Westland.

Yet another example of Maggie closing down yet another of our manufacturing industries. In this one, even one of her own ministers resigned.

And do you remember how she paid for all of her reforms. By selling off the family silver. Water companies - gone. Gas? - Sold to Sid. The railways, the building societies. Everything not nailed down, sold, sold, sold. And remember - these belonged to us, the people, in the first place. The money raise went to tax cuts for the rich and big business.

Yes, I remember Maggie and if I had my way I'd stake the bitch and cut her black heart out.

Woo Yay #2
You, sir are what Great Britain needs! Very salient points, very well made.... I can imagine "PMQ's" with you in charge, that I'd watch with a packet of peanuts and a large moutain of beers wearing a scarf printed with "Legless=Leader of the free world!" in 6 ft high dayglo green letters.
If you want someone to help stake her out, I'll gladly be your Igor.
(, Wed 25 Feb 2009, 9:24, closed)
I won't join in
but I'm just a couple of years younger than Legless and a southerner to boot but couldn't agree with him more.

Love the idea of burying her under a disco - why wait til she snuffs it? Let's go and do it today.
