I remember the Thatcher years

David Brumpton (Jan 10) comments critisises Labour members, using abusive names to them. I could do the same to members of the the party he supports but I will say this he has a short memory.

I remember Thatcher destroying the country's manufacturing and industry and putting money into the pockets of the aristocrats, stockbrokers and any fly by night scroungers who will make a quick buck off the poor, vulnerable and disabled.
