    Actually, the economy is doing worse than independent authorities were predicting it to at this time under labours policies. I don't even particularly like Labour. Then again I haven't yet heard of a political party that I haven't thought is chatting **** on the majority of its policies, so.
    Source? Pretty sure that's untrue.

    She was the only female prime minister in the history of the UK, dip****. By definition she was also the least dominant female prime minister, the most left wing female prime minister, the most likely female prime minister to defect to the BNP, the most likely female prime minister to defect to labour and the female prime minister that most resembles Charlie Sheen.

    Credit where credit is due though - I may disagree with almost everything she ever did, but the woman has balls of steel.

    How me whenever theirs polls Lady T always comes out on top then.
    yeh polls from the daily male you ****.

    Yes Thatcher gave working men the chance to buy council houses, and that was a good thing, but that was the only thing that govt (Or rather party) had ever done to help the working man. Thatcher single handedly destroyed the unions, and forever alienated the Tories from Scotland by introducing the poll tax here, before the rest of Britain.

    On Cameron, yes these cuts need to be made. But the defence cuts will cause RAF Lossie and Kinloss to lose, these two areas have a major impact on the economy of moray, I believe that this area has the single highest reliance on those 2 RAF bases than anywhere else in country, and they are closing them!

    History is repeating itself, and once again the Tories will screw over scotland and the north of england.

    The tories say 'it pays to work', seems fair enough. But the truth is they mean, buisness owners are workers, not cleaners or shop workers, who will be baring the brunt of the benfit cuts, because a bunch of ****ing greedy bankers (Prob tories) couldnt help but spending money they didnt bloody have!.

    They say the richest will pay more, bull****! they are cutting the taxes of all big buisnesses, they say this is to 'stimulate the economy' my arse, look at America, the most tory country in the world and look at the gap between rich and poor, that will happen to Britain if the Tories continue their onslaught.

    Margaret Thatcher or the so called 'Iron Lady' was probably the most dominant female prime minister in the history of the UK. She was a strong leader and didn't take **** from anybody. But there are lots of negative things she did that you'd never thought a lady would do. She won the Falklands war with ease which helped her towards winning her election in the 1980's. She wasn't really a prime minister to me. I'd say she worked in a presidential way including her close relationship with the then American president, Ronald Reagan. She opposed to working with cabinet members by taking matters into her own hands. She sacked lots of her cabinet members aswell and she usually gets information from outsiders. All these led to her defeat when nearly all ministers turned against her.

    Cameron is just a complete liar to be honest. Although he is charismatic, popular e.t.c. He is a complete ****. He is against the reform of the electoral system because he knows that the FPTP system has worked well for the Conservatives. I just hope that after the referendums commence on the 5th of may that most people will vote for the electoral reform so the new AV or STV system will replace the single pluralism system. This couldn't have been done without the help of Nick Clegg who in my opinion is a complete liar aswell. If Cameron privatises the NHS, it will have a negative impact on our economy as people might have to start paying to receive treatment.
    I can't for the sake of my life remember any positive thing that Cameron has done to make Britain better since he got in power.

    All I'm hoping for is that the electoral reform comes in place so that a lot more political parties can be represented and hopefully labour comes in.


    Won the Falklands war with EASE, tell that to the families of those who lost their lives you ignorant ****! But have to agree with u on cameron

    All of the nurses are complaining about cuts but they have no alternative. They just think "no cuts, just leave everything as it is and it will be alright". I seen about 50 people walking around my hospital with badges on and none of them were doing anything. the NHS needs to be shaken up whether the soft people in this country like it or not. Camerons dad didnt become a millionaire by being soft, he made tough decisions that hurt alot of people.
    Nurses are the most underappreciated people in society. The reason they are annoyed is because it is THEIR jobs that are getting cut, not the bureacratic ********s who hve no idea about healthcare, and all they know about is targets and paperwork.

    Was this in anyway necessary?

    She won the Falklands war but did I mention that this was a good thing. All I said was it helped her win the election during those period.

    As a quick example, here's is a comparison of predictions made in January 2010, predicting 1.3% growth in GDP over that period where, you'll remember, GDP fell 0.6%, which admittedly is partially due to the cold weather snap we had, but the Office of National Statistics says would've been "flattish" even without that.

    The only reason she was succesful through her elections was not due to her *ahem* 'brilliance' but rather the fact that the left labour party was uterlly divided and had no clear leader. Also Cameron failed to win a majority in an election after one of the worst recessions in decades had been started, and the opposition of labour was headed by (some see) the most unpopulr modern british PM, and he STILL couldnt win a majoirity, rest my case

    the falklands war was completely wrong, just so a bunch of greedy buisnessmen could get their hands on some black gold. The only reason she won the elections was because the socialist labour party was in a complete state of disaray and madness.

    How can you compare the two figures? There's no reason to believe Labour would have met the prediction, what were the predictions by those independent sources after the coalition government was formed? Those are the better figures to compare.

    Yeh because wanting an electoral system that will favour your own party is really bad and controversial. Its interesting how u dont have a go at Clegg who is supporting AV because the Lib dems will get more votes. Also, there will be such a low turn out in may 5th because oddly enough people outside the Student room dont know what AV ia about. So either way the result will be pretty unrepresentative

    By saying that the Falklands war was wrong, u are supporting an Argintian fascist Dictator who occupied British terriority.

    The Falskland war is the only war since WW2 that the UK has any right in doing. Unlike a certain Labour Politician who lied to us about WMDs in Iraq :/

    There are lots of negative things I could have said about Clegg but the whole thread was based on Thatcher/Cameron, remember.

    In my opinion, the AV system cannot solve the problems of Parliament but it is clearly more representative than the single plurarity system.

    Yeah you are right about your last point. The public hardly knows what the AV system entails, which IMO is devastating. Therefore I don't see the electoral reform being successful.

    Reform of the HoL is something I am strictly against.
    I don't want elected representatives that will merely go with public opinion, I want knowledgeable and experienced individuals who know exactly what they are talking about.
    Yes, that piece of crap known as public opinion! I hate the will of the public. Tell you what I love, the lack of a mandate and autocracy Especially by aristocrats, who are hand picked party favourites and nothing more.








    ...Thank God most people aren't like you. I hope you never gain a position in life with any form of power involved. You don't deserve it.

    At the time they thought there was very little oil there and previous drill tests had concluded that it was not financially viable to extract it, and why, if it was all about oil, did Britain sign an agreement with Argentina to split any oil revenues, which Argentina then pulled out of?

    it's only been in the last few years that they have found larger reserves and restarted drill tests.

    The Falklands made Thatcher, it gained her a reputation as a strong leader, but that wasn't the real story. Thatcher didn't want to go to war over The Falklands, in fact she was ready to sign them over as part of the mediation by the US, but the Argentinians didn't agree with the terms the US would impose on them. She still wasn't sure how to respond as most people told her it was an impossible war to win, and it took a lot of persuading from her cabinet to send troops in.

    The other bit of fortune was with HMS Invincible, the UK had decided they didn't need aircraft carriers at the time and had already agreed the sale of Invincible, if the Argentinians had waited a few more months they would have had complete air superiority and the UK would have stood little chance in reclaiming the islands. Needless to say after the war the sale of Invincible was cancelled and she remained in the fleet until about 5 years ago.

    While we were backed by most of the western world and they supplied us with equipment they wouldn't get directly involved, so it was two pieces of fortune that won her that war, the Argentinians refusal to accept US conditions and the fact that we hadn't handed Invincible over to Australia.

    Don't forget this is a coalition government and the cuts would have a different look if it were a solely Tory government, and also I doubt if the tax regime would be the same.
