Ah the good old days. 16/17% mortgages, two household incomes and one of those just enough to pay the mortgage. Unions trying to run the country. Red Robbo calling everyone at British Leyland out on strike every other week because a bloke who usually turned a nut clockwise was asked to turn it anti-clockwise. Striking miners bombarding coaches, carrying miners who wanted to work, with bricks and bottles in an attempt to stop them getting to work. The poor old taxi driver who was killed when carrying a miner to work when some striking miners dropped a paving slab from an overhead foot bridge through the windscreen of his car.
It was inconceivable that unions were going to win the day, the government were just not going to let it happen.
At the moment it appears if you were a strong unionist you didn't like MT and if you weren't she was the best thing since sliced bread.
I liked her because she was a strong leader, something we could do with now to tell the EU where to go with its rediculous policies.
Roll on Saturday, looking forward to a good game. Hope we get that female ref again.

Well we wouldnt be paying through the nose for gas for a start. Paying all this money to overseas companys who don't care a jot about us or GB. Unless when things like Corby steel works got closed 11000 people lost a job all at once. Suppose if you think thats a good thing 11000 familys ruined. Hey good for you I say.

Indeed no we wouldn't just be paying through the nose for Gas it'd be for everything and banckrupt as a country.

I think if you think the developing nations of the world are going to stop trying to take the jobs of un competative industries your deluded.  Why should they as a popultion live in real squalor and accept their lot? This while the people backing unions here wanted to lie back and take it easy with a short working week and work to rule and demarkation?  Big business will migrate to exploit where is best for their interests and profits and there is no control of any rules that one nation could put in place to prevent it.  In the 80's our industry generally and productivity mostly was down the pan and the unions liked it like that.

Equally I don't think loosing jobs is a good thing but refusing to change, buying your head in the past and waving a socilaist workers flag isn't going to enable the country to remain competative either.  Just take a look at the end of the USSR and that's the state our economy would have been in without the hard calls made. 

Trabant anyone ?

You didn't get my point so I shall surrender to your greater intellect. I didn't say reform wasn't needed im also not a socialist I just dont see why it needs to be celebrated. Parts of the north never recovered. I just think that's a shame that's all
