Thatcher’s Last Stand Against Socialism May 9, 2009

Posted by Michael in Heroes, History.

Dang, I miss her.

Look who is leading us, and compare to Margaret Thatcher in her final appearance in Parliament.  Keep in mind, when she took office in 1979, she also inherited a rapidly declining economy.  Her response was to privatize state-owned industries, curtail the meddling of civil servants in the economy, reduce the power of trade unions, and cut taxes.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Thanks to Six Meat Buffet.

Don’t you love how the left likes to paint conservatives as humorless? She was anything but.
Has there been anyone like her over there, since?

2. Michael - May 9, 2009

Nope. No surprise that she and Reagan were close friends and stalwart allies.

That was just such a breath of political fresh air. Awesome find.

Gotta love the Brits. Even when they are bashing one another they are smiling, laughing, and addressing each other “honorable gentleman.”

Yep. I miss her too.

What a shame she was succeeded by that milquetoast on her left shoulder.

Imagine Obama showing up for a session like this.

Member of Parliament: “Will the Honorable Gentlemen concede that to this date his Porkulus spending bill has been an abject failure at curtailing unemployment, and his entire economic program has been discredited and exposed as political largess to his socialist fellow travelers, as demonstrated by the statistics referenced by “Geoff” at the Innocent Bystanders website?”

Prime Minister Obama: “Uh, uh, uh, will somebody please turn the fucking teleprompter on to my last speech?”

Hahahahahaha. Michael! Good on you!

Cathy told me to make my last comment, because we were talking about it outside.

I obeyed.

Now I’m going to take her out for Thai food. Because she wants it, and I will obey.

9. Cathy - May 9, 2009

*considers how else he’ll obey me tonight.*

can’t hear you

11. BrewFan - May 9, 2009

I will obey.

I see you also know the secret of a long marriage.

I popped back into this thread in order to share my humorous mental image of Michael hunched before the computer in the Batcave while Cathy sits at the bar in the kitchen using a laptop, far enough apart that they can’t hear each other GLAR at each other’s comments.

But now I have my mental fingers in my ears, and I’m going to go study some image processing.
