Re: Theresa May to make statement in Downing Street

so we are agreed.

Mrs Thatcher was indeed responsible (as Secretary of State for Education) for stopping the milk for primary children (between 7 and 11).

that was why she was given the soubriquet "milk snatcher"

presumably there is no further need for me to check my history books

End of.....

Re: Theresa May to make statement in Downing Street

The 'milk snatcher' as you call her was the greatest Politician, apart from Winston C. that we ever had the pleasure of having as Prime Minister. I wish she was alive today. Bresxit would have been done and dusted months ago. Please look into your history books as Maggie did not actually make the d...

Re: Theresa May to make statement in Downing Street

You say it was sorted by the milk snatcher

I say she started the deindustrialisation of Britain and caused the great schism between south east and the rest

Re: Theresa May to make statement in Downing Street

We intend to 're-write' the Human Rights Act to include amongst many things the right to deport convicted/known Terrorists with or without a family which at present we are not allowed to do. It's only a minor detail of course but the European convention for human rights (and hence the human rights ...

Re: Theresa May to make statement in Downing Street

it is the same level of speculation that I posted on this website a couple of weeks before the referendum. it was mocked for being part of "Project Fear" In due course it happened as predicted. Inflation has risen as a direct and immediate result of that. We are poorer as a result I do not doubt it ...

Re: Theresa May to make statement in Downing Street

Can you explain why you consider that not leaving the EU would be better than the unknown we are already poorer because of the devaluation of the pound by 15% two days after the referendum if we did not leave , then immediately the pound would rally but there is so much more benefit from staying

So today , will we find out which untruths/ deceptions/uncomfortable truths or indeed blatant lies that the government did not wish us to see in the Attorney General's advice to the Cabinet?

Re: Theresa May to make statement in Downing Street

any serious student of economics will follow JM Keynes' view that you invest when in a recession, not impose cuts. "Long term economic plan" was just a load of round objects. it was never long term, it had no concept of economics, and there was no planning. Anybody who refers to the the "deficit" as...
