You don’t say!
We really really (really!) do need a new Mrs. Thatcher to reverse many of the laws and social changes covered in and below this headline article in The Times.
It all started with the election of the current government who in what was a massive betrayal of conservative working class values, destroyed dignity, common sense and trust – simultaneously – all made worse by the awful celebrity and reality TV culture that preaches all the wrong values. The behaviour of the previous Prime Minister, jet setting around the world being paid huge sums is an embarrassing violation of the humble values and incentives that go with public leadership – and discredits any policy motives. How many times have you seen any of our recently elected or non elected leaders visiting factories to motivate workers and encourage entrepreneurship? – As Mrs. Thatcher did on countless occasions. Today, our leaders are in it for their egos, money and/or because they have a chip on their shoulders.
Each and every repressive nation throughout history has become that way due to flaws in the personality of the leaders. And that has often lead to war, tragedy and/or an almost permanent state of dystopia for the population. Or one followed by the other.
Fight back club: Consider who you know that would make a good British leader who is likely to click the national [UNDO] button and suggest they run for PM.
Don’t forget reader(s), I base every opinion on this blog on real world experience and observation, not what I read elsewhere. (Any links are to validate a point.) Just as one can look out of the window or ask friends to check the weather, so too one can monitor social change through experience and dailogue. There is much to celebrate in the UK, some service industries (restaurants in particular) offer far better choice and quality than decades ago, transport and cities are much cleaner and society is less prejudiced.
