    IME most people of that opinion are still blinkered by Maggie. Even living where i live im yet to meet anyone who can express a reasonable arguement against the tories, only falling back on the same worn out record of "the miners and the railways." Boohoo, im living in the 21st century, i couldnt care less what happened in the past. Plus everyone seemed to do ok back then, house prices certainly wernt at 10x the average wage, and national debt wasnt at the rediculas level it is now...

    Leopards and spots spring to mind..........

    Just out of interest, How old are the participants of this thread? I'm guessing some, if not most, are under 30?

    I will write a separate thread which will detail exactly why the Tory Party are the curse of the last 30 years. Labour may not have been perfect, but the system that they were left with was one that was destroyed in the 80's by Maggie and her cronies.

    It's not ALL about the miners and the railways. It's about British Gas, British Telecom, British Airways, the Water Board etc etc etc.

    Not quite true, no direct tax increase on them but VAT increase thus they will all go up in January 2011 with the VAT increase

    Indeed, don't forget to mention the deregulation of banks under Maggie & Ronnie. The very reason for them going out of control to start with....
    As part of the Thatcher Revolution, the national economy has out-sourced, de-industrialized and turned to a service economy & the consequences for the UK will include soaring unemployment, while the economy teeters on the brink of full-blown deflation. Unemployment will rise by more than 900,000 people over the next 12 months, driving the jobless total to 2.55 million by the end of the year, or 8.2 per cent of the workforce.
    Thanks George - you muppet.

    Labour had 13 years to correct that, did they even try? For me that arguement doesnt carry any weight whatsoever. Fair enough if labour had put it "right", just not in time, or had even tried to do it, but they didnt.

    Of course, the next blow will be that on top of the pay freeze, we'll get little or no increase in line with inflation either, yet another way they can rip us all off. It's ok though, because they dangled the increased tax-free personal allowance carrot, you know, the one that barely puts a dent in the VAT increase, frozen wages and (I'm guessing) the fact we won't get any rise for inflation.

    Erm. The pay freeze is on the inflation related increases - ie. there won't be any. I doubt it'd affect people changing grades, as that is tied to their contracts FWIK.

    I took it to mean that the pay freeze was to stop people progressing through spinal points, is it not?
