    1. It's a stupid question. 

    2. Had I been a year older, I would have voted Labour.  Obviously. 

    3. The straight choice in 2016 was between remaining in the EU or handing untrammelled power to the right wing of the Tory Party. 

    4.  There's a long list of things I hate about Thatcher. The fact she was a woman isn't one of them. No need for the misogynistic language. 

    4. Thatcher was no lady. She deserves all the scorn that comes her way.  She was a cunting slag who's policies drove people to suicide and ruined the lives and aspirations of millions. Her shit stained legacy is unfortunately still felt today.

     

    Your other points? Fair enough.

    So, you're happy to concede that, had you voted in 2016, you would have chosen the package of Brexit plus the Johnson/Gove/Rees-Mogg wing of the Tory Party?

    No I wouldn't have angry because its obviously not good for jobs, workers rights and the country in general. However I believe a withdrawal negotiated by Corbyn/Starmer could have been possible and kept our relationship with the eu cordial and workable.

    No I wouldn't have.

     

    You didnt answer my question. I will ask again.

     

    So would you rather a Thatcher government in the eu or a socialist labour government led by Foot out of the eu? That was the choice that faced the country in 83/4. 

     

    Which one angry?

     

    It's not even a hard question and your fluffing it over a slag who threw millions on the dole and sold off Britains industries because of your pathetic love affair with the eu.

    Britain would have been better served under a Labour Government and in the EU. 

    Always.

    But that wasnt the choice Angry was it? Come on now you know your history

     

     A labour government who promised to pull out of the eu in its first term or a Thatcher government who chose to stay in. That was the choice and until the Falklands we looked certain to be leaving.

     

    Go on put me out of my misery which one was/is it?

    No. That's why I never said they were.

     

    Modern slavery is illegal and everyone who knows anything about the subject knows that giving migrant workers rights is key to fighting modern slavery and people trafficking. Leaving the EU takes rights away from migrant workers.  You have drawn your own conclusion from these facts, but it's anybody's guess how you got there.

    You saw them poor fuckers bundled on that plane to Britain when we were rife with Covid, all legal so that's ok then.

     

    You carry condoning this shit Angry. I'm out

    Did they achieve much in their political careers for the populace or the country?

     

    Two letter answer beginning with N and ending with O.

     

    It's really strange to keep quoting politicians who have at best done very little when you try and talk about the EU. Of which we're no longer a part of 

    Who? Thatcher was prime minister for a fucking long time unfortunately. In that period Britain never once looked like leaving the eu. 

     

    In that period Britain experienced record three million plus unemployment. Do you not think Britain would have been better served out of the eu under a labour government than in the eu under a Thatcher premiership that brought misery and squalor?

    When did any UK Government do this?

     

    Oh come on angry for fuvks sake, they've done it for years. Got to have a bogey man. I shouldn't have to remind you of this slag.. but you've made me 

     

     

    Thatcher. No no no speech.

     

    Was going to put up clip but not fair to let others rather yourself see her face

    EU standards have always been legal minimum standards: every Member State has the right to legislate for higher standards. UK governments have consistently chosen not to do so.

    Oh yes.

    I expect the S*n, Mail, Express, LBC, BBC, etc to start shining the harsh cold light of truth on the Government...

    ... any...

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    ... minute...

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    ... now!

    Why should we believe the papers you mentioned would do that? Who said they would do that? Nobody. When have they ever done that? I'm not sure of your point.

    Handily for the government, there will be alot of people out of work, signing up to do their old job with a new contract. 

    True that looks inevitable unfortunately. However the government can no longer hide behind the eu so high unemployment should rest firmly on this governments shoulders.  

     

    They promised better times outside the eu so it should be a case of the people saying go on over to you.

    This is the point where Gnash reminds us that workers' rights weren't handed to us by the EU, but were won by the working class through centuries of struggle: therefore, we shouldn't worry about losing loads of rights, because we can just start a long struggle to regain them. Or something. 

    But nearly all our rights were indeed won before we entered the eu Angry, not an opinion that's a fact. 

     

    Working conditions in today's Britain are fucking awful now even in the eu, look at the conditions in the sweatshops in the Midlands, youngsters on zero hour contracts or overseas slaves picking vegetables. 

     

    If a tory government wants to take away workers rights they should be made to understand by unions, workers, the labour party and the general public that their proposals will be opposed and they can use the excuse of blaming the European union. They are out in the open.
