    I miss this lady. How we could do with her now.


    "It was not a Government that built up the skill and craft of this country...It was private individuals who patiently persevered, building up their businesses bit by bit...Their success provided employment for others and greatly benefited the community as a whole. This was the spirit that made England great and can restore her once again. Do you want it to perish for a soul-less Socialist system, or to live to recreate a glorious Britain?"



    "I believe the person who is prepared to work hardest should get the greatest rewards and keep them after tax. That we should back the workers and not the shirkers: that it is not only permissible but praiseworthy to want to benefit your own family by your own efforts"


    "I place a profound belief—indeed a fervent faith—in the virtues of self reliance and personal independence
    ."

    "I would say, let our children grow tall and some taller than others if they have the ability in them to do so. "


    "And I will go on criticising Socialism, and opposing Socialism because it is bad for Britain – and Britain and Socialism are not the same thing...It's the Labour Government that have brought us record peace-time taxation. They’ve got the usual Socialist disease – they’ve run out of other people's money."

    " I sometimes think the Labour Party is like a pub where the mild is running out. If someone doesn't do something soon, all that's left will be bitter. And all that's bitter will be Left."


    "Some Socialists seem to believe that people should be numbers in a State computer. We believe they should be individuals. We are all unequal. No one, thank heavens, is like anyone else, however much the Socialists may pretend otherwise. We believe that everyone has the right to be unequal but to us every human being is equally important."

    "Rising crime is not due to “society”—but to the steady undermining of personal responsibility and self-discipline—all things which are taught within the family."

    "It doesn't matter to me who you are or what your background is. If you want to use your own efforts to work harder—yes, I am with you all the way"

    "Socialists don't like ordinary people choosing, for they might not choose Socialism."

    Yes. Use the milk I took of the children Dennis, it tastes so much sweeter than the usual stuff.

    Maybe she could get her cabinet to re introduce section 28 again. That would surely push young @adz-a32 over the edge.

    I misread the thread title as the ironing lady first and was expecting some pearls of wisdom from @Mrs Steve R . Never mind.

    I like the way that she managed to get unemployment to rise from 1.4m to 3.2m in just five years.

    That took some doing that fair play.

    The way she initiated a housing crisis that still persists today was some sterling work as well.

    Yes, but to be fair she did manage to reduce inflation.

    Then again, with a couple of million being out of work and the rest of us paying 15% interest on our mortgages, it's not like anyone had any money to spend on stuff anyway

    I agree... whether it happened in reality is debatable

    She may have created a culture of free enterprise but that culture should be accessible to all and she did not achieve that.
