Subject: RE: BS: How I Learnt to Loathe England (article)
Pfr I've enjoyed reading your posts re tech stuff and other subjects. I don't want to fall out. but. Under Thatcher I was working as a scaffolder. It was my experiences as a building worker that politicised me. That is what made me a conservative. It was only later that I discovered that my father was a leftie. His brother, my uncle Doug, was actually a member of the militant tendancy although I didn't know that until a lot later. My point is that the factors that resulted in your dad's predicament originated a long time before Maggie got elected. You blame her. OK. But a whole lot of stuff went on before.
