A Brief History Of Baroness Thatcher The Conservative Reality….

Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness ThatcherLGOMPCFRS (née Roberts, 13 October 1925 – 8 April 2013)

She arrived at Oxford in 1943 and graduated in 1947 with Second-Class Honours in the four-year Chemistry Bachelor of Science degree; in her final year she specialised in X-ray crystallography under the supervision of Dorothy Hodgkin

Roberts became President of the Oxford University Conservative Association in 1946. She was influenced at university by political works such as Friedrich von Hayek‘s The Road to Serfdom (1944), which condemned economic intervention by government as a precursor to an authoritarian state.

After graduating, Roberts moved to Colchester in Essex to work as a research chemist for BX Plastics. In 1948, she applied for a job at ICI, but was rejected after the personnel department assessed her as “headstrong, obstinate and dangerously self-opinionated”.

She joined the local Conservative Association and attended the party conference at Llandudno in 1948, as a representative of the University Graduate Conservative Association. Officials of the association were so impressed by her that they asked her to apply, even though she was not on the Conservative party’s approved list: she was selected in January 1951 and added to the approved list post ante.

And the rest, as they say…is history….Thatcher was not even on the Conservative party’s ‘approved’ list, and in the end it was the Tory Party (her own cabinet and ‘friends’) that ultimately ended her career of being Prime Minister.

Lets take a quick look at what influenced Baroness Thatcher and her Conservative party and most regrettably New Labour; even now today…..

The Road to Serfdom is a book written by the Austrian-born economist and philosopher Friedrich von Hayek (1899–1992) between 1940–1943, in which he “warned of the danger of tyranny that inevitably results from government control of economic decision-making through central planning,” and in which he argues that the abandonment of individualism and classical liberalism inevitably leads to a loss of freedom, the creation of an oppressive society, the tyranny of a dictator and the serfdom of the individual.

The following 2 paragraphs are paraphrased with consent from Smiling Carcass’s Two-Penneth as I couldn’t have said it better http://smilingcarcass.wordpress.com/2013/04/11/blair-warns-miliband/#comment-235

Baroness Thatcher said in an interview, when asked what she thought her greatest achievement was, said “New Labour”. That alone should tell us that Old Labour were right for the workers, the poor, the disabled and otherwise disenfranchised population.

It is also my opinion that Blair, and many of his Blairite co-conspirators were planted into the Labour party to make the change to New Labour, to ensure no ‘People’s Party’ would remove the protections and advantages handed to the wealthy and powerful at the expense of the poor. This is exactly what we are seeing- no effective opposition, a one party state of capitalists.

But as I have said before; under this Tory government we are being made to pay for the irresponsible behaviour of our Tory chancellor, with our taxes; and he still believes that his way is the right way.

Our great nation was built on the strength of a nations pride, and will be destroyed by ‘one’ man’s pride, George Osborne‘s.

It is my opinion that democracy is a mask for dictatorship as warned by the book “The Road To Serfdom”, and that is exactly how all politicians see the general population as serfs. We need at the very least a return to old labour and more rights for the workers and unions. What ever happened to people power, Labour power and power to the people from Labour…..We keep going to war because of dictators treating their people atrociously and yet we are not all that far from that ourselves….

Our government over the last two weeks have been handed the Truth And Lies Report, signed by some 43 Bishops, the  House Of Lords have asked parliament to look again at their proposals regarding the nations budget and even financial experts have told George Osborne that his budget proposals are unworkable…….

And still parliament are not listening to the church, the Lords or financial experts…..don’t you think that it is time for a vote of no-confidence in our current government????

We are raising more money for the rich

            Edward Miliband:
I must say, I have heard everything when the boy from the Bullingdon club lectures people on bullying. Absolutely extraordinary. Have you wrecked a restaurant recently?The Prime Minister does not want to talk about the facts, but let us give him another one. He is hitting working families, and the richest people in our society will get a massive tax cut next April—an average of £107,000 each for people earning over £1 million. Is he the only person left in the country who cannot see the fundamental injustice of giving huge tax cuts to the richest while punishing those in work on the lowest pay?
            The Prime Minister:
The tax take for the richest under this Government will be higher in every year than it was for any year when the right hon. Gentleman was in government. He has obviously got a short memory, because I explained to him last week that under his plans for the 50p tax rate, millionaires paid £7 billion less in tax than they did previously. The point of raising taxes is to pay for public services. We are raising more money for the rich, but where he is really so profoundly wrong is in the choice that he has decided to make. The facts are these: over the last five years, people in work have seen their incomes go up by 10%, and people out of work have seen their incomes go up by 20%. At a time when people accept a pay freeze we should not be massively increasing benefits massively, yet that is what he wants to do. A party that is not serious about controlling welfare is not serious about controlling the deficit either.
            Edward Miliband:
From the first part of his answer, it seems the Prime Minister is claiming to be Robin Hood; I really do not think that is going to work. He is not taking from the richest and giving to everybody else. Didn’t the Business Secretary give it away in what he said about the autumn statement? He said:“what happened was some of their donors,”—we know who he is talking about—“very wealthy people, stamped their feet”,so the Conservatives scrapped the mansion tax and went ahead with the 50p tax cut. They look after their friends—the people on their Christmas card list.Meanwhile, they hit people they never meet, and whose lives they will never understand.

It seems to me that no one, including the news, picked up on that sentence that Mr Cameron said…..

Thanks for reading!

If we disabled people have to keep on proving that we are still worthy of support from the government, then shouldn’t MP’s have to retake their exams to prove that they are also still worthy of our support!!!If they fail then they should be sanctioned and/or kicked out of government.

Maybe we should start an e-petition to put this idea through parliament???

Maybe if ATOS had to assess their capability to run the country?
