Thread Name: BS: Margaret Thatcher's Birthday-13 Oct 1925
Subject: RE: BS: Margaret Thatcher's Birthday.
Politicians do set the scene and enable through legislation, but Teribus is putting too much emphasis on the role of a politician.

Enhancing of life expectations is achieved by a combination of the expertise of entrepreneurs and their backers combined with the will of people to embrace change.

Thatcher is an example of what can happen when political leaders over step the mark and try interfering too much with society. Power corrupts etc etc. As I said above, she called me and my workmates "the enemy within." Now then, let's see, I wonder if you can think of other leaders of countries who started by saying such things about sections of the society they were supposed to be working for? (I'll give you a clue, think murdering genocidal despots through the years...)

A totalitarian witch who if she had been clever enough would have changed politics alright, but not in the way some rose tinted spectacle wearing pillocks think. Geoffrey Howe doesn't strike me as the saviour of freedom, but his resignation speech makes you think?
