No, Prime Minster

No, Prime Minister, we are not all 'Thatcherites' now.

Some of us think that is an insult.

Unless, of course, you were merely speaking for City fat cats.

Oh he didn't, did he? FFS.

I watched the funeral, because St Pauls does a lovely service, but avoided the news out of fear of this sort of thing.

I'd actually mellowed a bit after the Archbishop's message; but I'll happily up my loathing of Cameron. Wanker.

Nick Robinson at the Beeb has written a long screed desperately defending this but I'd avoid it if you don't want your blood pressure to go through the roof.

He did indeed- and during his little memorial speech during the service, apparently. :o(

What a wanker!

How he or anyone can defend spending millions on this amazes me.

“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.”

George Orwell, from: 'Nineteen Eighty Four'

Sometimes he just says it all...........


You echo my thoughts precisely. He is a wanker. And his bible reading was pompous. Ugh.

A pompous reading for a pompous, self important little man.

Sounds about right! :oS

Has anyone informed Ed Milliband of this? Or, better yet, Glenda Jackson?

Ed Milliband probably is a Thatcherite. Tony Blair certainly was.

My thought exactly. Blair was Thatcher-lite.

No, he's right. Anyone he considers "someone" is a Thatcherite. Those of us who aren't, aren't really people - his policies make that quite clear.

And this - though I was tempted to watch just to make sure she really is dead - is why I avoided the whole damn thing. If anyone dares suggest that to me I shall unceremoniously give them the rough edge of my tongue, and quite likely the back of my hand across their smug face as well!

I ran into this just now.

Seems Steve Bell is as acid as ever!

And I happen to be the granddaughter of colliers!

Oh, that is fine. Steve Bell, still spiky.

He's been having fun ever since the death was announced. Check out the 'If' strip as well as the editorials.

I have never been one. Not in my name, Mr Cameron.
