Can anybody tell me apart from the spot ins who took the milk away from primary children if it wasn’t the milk snatcher

As advised by the knowledgeable ones I’ve looked st the history books and I’ve still come up with the same answer

Sometimes I am caught out by my lack of knowledge of recent history but not often


Stating positively something that is accurate does not usually make it true

Please tell me who deprived primary children of the free milk

p.s.

At a Cabinet Meeting row she opposed the proposal to cut back on costs, but was insisted upon by the Treasury,...……..the continuation of the previous Labour Policy(who had stopped milk for ALL Secondary Modern schools) when in power 2 years before. Only the 7-11 year olds milk allowance was stopped by her, all others received 1/3rd pint per day and schools were also allowed to sell milk to anyone missing out at a cheap subsidised price.

So , to quote your words

the 7-11 year olds milk allowance was stopped by her,
End of.........
We agree therefore that the milk snatcher did stop the primary children’s milk for these pupils

I have no knowledge as to when 4 to 7 year olds lost their milk

Can you enlighten me perhaps

No need to put. “ end of “

It does not further the argument

Who is arguing, I am not, just stating the facts.

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

one of the best comments in this brexit mess was yesterday when an SNP mp asked the Speaker as a point of order, whether it was allowable to have a vote of no confidence in the Opposition!

it made me laugh

Only a couple of days ago a Tory MP interrupted a SNP MP by shouting "Back to the Isle of Skye ". Not much fuss was made in the UK media of course, but this alleged incident grabs the front pages despite being unproven & hardly offensive. Just goes to show who has the Fleet Street millionaires in their back pockets!

Today we had the nonsense of one MP ( voted in as a Tory) complaining that another MP ( voted in as a Tory )has allowed an amendment proposed by another MP (voted in as a Tory). And then a couple of MPs (each voted in as Tories) are complaining that there is bias.

This is because somebody objects to the fact that the PM (voted in as a Tory) is being prevented from using delaying tactics after deliberately delaying perhaps this century's most important parliamentary vote by over a month, for no reason than that she does not want Parliament to take back control. When she (strong and stable as she is) has such utter disdain for Parliament then it is time for Parliament to take control
