    All I can say is...

    My hard-working father, from a struggling family, who worked his ass off in school and got into med school, reading his ass off (even rejecting dates with my mother just to read) and then becoming a well-respected gynaecologist, working long hours and hefty night shifts, resulting in high blood pressure, is now getting his pay cut by £16,000. How ****ing unfair.

    Don't care if I sound biased, never liked the conservatives anyway. Even if the cuts are for financial debts of the country, they are to blame for their outlandish spending etc. This is just one of the many idiotic decisions made by Cameron. Closing down libraries and swimming pools where children have fun and youth clubs so yobs can fill our streets again? WTF? David Cameron is an *******, and Margaret Thatcher is a racist *****.

    Conservatives are ****ing up this country. I prefer Brown and Blair over Thatcher and Cameron anyday.
    sudden pay cut like this should never be the case no matter what ! pay freeze is understandable but sudden pay cut like this!

    even thou doc earn alot! it is cause of its skill set and supply and demand plus legacy. so may complain they earn enuf! maybe yes but if cutting such drastic amount you in a way ****ting on him and his service

    what happen to his loans and the servicing of his stuff which was not fully paid? if its a pay cut let it be a process so at least he can plan. since its also a free market he can also look for options

    and for all talk what happen to MPs salaries?

    In which poll? I read a poll somewhere the other day about her being voted one of the worst PM's we've had.
    It's the marmite factor... like when you get award ceremonies where Bieber wins best artist and worst artist in the same year.

    Thatcher's the Bieber of primeministers.

    Margaret Thatcher or the so called 'Iron Lady' was probably the most dominant female prime minister in the history of the UK. .
    She was the only female prime minister the United Kingdom has ever had so... of course she was the most dominant female prime minister. :rolleyes:

    So giving people the right to buy their council house isnt a good thing??
    Hitler built the autobahns and significantly increased employment levels in Germany.

    Point being, a single positive act hardly counters the untold damage that evil ***** caused to this country.

    Firstly, i have read your whole post and I am sorry for what happend with your father. However, what exactly do you mean by this? Sounds like your saying the conservative government is the blame for the outlandish spending, when it was Labour who caused it yet you stick by them?

    Margaret Thatcher is a racist *****.
    :facepalm:

    I was about to ask for just one piece of evidence for this, but there wasn't, and still isn't any point.


    I'm no fan of the conservatives or David Cameron, btw. But if you are going to insult Thatcher, atleast insult her on what she actually was instead of making up the most obvious bull****


    And to those who want Thatcher to die really need to grow up. What difference is it going to make now, apart from proving how disgustingly sadistic you are.

    I hate to sound so blunt and simplistic, but if people hate Cameron so much, why did they vote for him? Or is it just that he is backtracking on a lot of his promises?

    I was wondering at first why Libdems didnt win...but then i thought ok, there must be some good reason why they picked the Conservatives. Libdems' promises sounded all great, but would you say Clegg would have betrayed his voters even if they had a majority? they would right? Or was it because they formed a coalition and was naturally under pressure from Cameron?

    My point being here that every PM in the world would love to have unlimited funds and over(feed) the nation in every possible way. There are limited funds and naturally that involves making tough choices. Again im sorry to sound so naive. But I'm curious whether people were dreaming of some sort of fairytale post financial crisis? Things were obviously bound to get difficult. Evidently the tories have made controversial decisions which put great pressure on the working class. Did no one see this coming? Did Cameron fool you all? Would Clegg have done the same thing on his own?

    Maggie was the greatest post war Prime Minister. In her 11 years as PM GDP grew 25% in real terms, personal wealth almost doubled in real terms and public spending increased 15% in real terms. On top of that unemployment fell by 2 million, she won the Falklands war and dramatically increased home ownership. You can't argue with the statistics, she got us out of the dreadful mess left by Wilson and Callaghan.

    However this all seems to get overshadowed by two things, the miner's strike and, what proved to be her ultimate downfall, the Community Charge (Poll Tax). The miner's strike was the public image of the last great struggle in this country between socialism and capitalism, it was inevitable at some point if this country wanted to modernise. The Community Charge was a failure, not because of it's introduction, as can be seen by the fact that it was later reintroduced in the form of council tax, but because the amount charged was left up to local councils. Labour councils basically charged their residents 2 or 3 times as much as Conservative councils to discredit the new tax, if Maggie had had the foresight to put a cap on the Community Charge, as is the case with Council Tax now, then it would have been nowhere near as unpopular or disastrous as it turned out to be.

    Even today this history is repeating itself, Labour councils are cutting more front line services in order to discredit the current government.

    Cameron is a limp wristed girly man who walks around big talking british influence yet cutting the armed forces, big talking how he will look after the armed forces (yes by making thousands redundant and giving us a the aircraft carrier farce) Apologising on the behalf of the british people on the empire when even the most leftist uni lecturer will admit the empire did plenty good overseas despite the bad ,even though many other countries had much harsher empires than ours that did nothing but exploit and destroy rather the build these countries up for their peoples living in trees and with bits of metal stuck up their noses. Who the hell does he think he is when he has no real mandate from us?

    He lies about his true feelings on the EU, he refuses to give the British people their referendum despite the fact the EU is far different than what we signed up to originally. He puts liberals (Clarke and May have no business in a true conservative party) in charge of law and order despite the atrocities that occur everyday in this country and the increased tensions within communities due to overcrowding and the failed Labour multicultural experiment and last governments immigration policies.

    His policies on welfare will not work because he is coming at it from the wrong angle,it should be about social engineering and not saving money. Many of those on unemployment are generations unemployable due to being failed by successive governments cooking the figures on sickness benefits moving those off job seekers onto sickness benefit and refusing to take harsh measures on migration (letting other peoples from overseas do the jobs others do not want to do) and using social policy, carrott and stick to bring back a work ethic . Employers do not want many of these long term unemployed people people near their workplaces, it's not just laziness on the doleys part. Nothing will change,they will just be shifted around benefits ,lots of big talk ,and we will still have part of society who are not really part of it,and most importantly do not feel part of it. They have no pride in themselves or their country,no spine or backbone.They feel like scum and people treat them like it. I beleive that Ian Duncan smith,thinks similarly to me,but unfortunately osbourne and the treasury got to him and his plans have been sh1t on.

    I could go on,but basically he and the idiots he surrounds himself with are not fit to lick Lady Thatchers boots. She wasn't perfect either but I can respect her,,he needs to stay at home with the children and we get a real strong man in charge.Maybe we should draft his wife in to run the country?

    It really depends who you are though:



    Also, I'd say Atlee was the greatest Post-war prime minister
