GT, (September 2), may I remind you it was the Tories who caused industrial unrest when Edward Heath brought in the Industrial Relations Act in 1970.

It was scrapped when Labour returned to power four years later.

Yes, the unions were led by left-wing barons who held the country to ransom by calling their workers to go out on strike demanding more money.

The unions became too powerful and their behaviour had to be curbed.

Denis Healy borrowed almost a £1 billion from the IMF to help boost the economy during the sterling crisis in 1976.

That loan was paid back before Labour left office in 1979.

Margaret Thatcher won three general elections with the massive support from the right-wing press and the media.

She poisoned Britain into a nasty little selfish nation.

She instigated the Miners’ Strike for revenge on the NUM for bringing down the Heath government in 1974 and being forced to reverse her pit closure plans seven years later.

If only Arthur Scargill held a ballot on industrial action, the outcome of the strike could have been different.

Five months after John Major’s election victory, chancellor Norman Lamont was advised by an economic’s guru to spend £16 billion to prop up the pound when Britain left the European Exchange Mechanism on Black Wednesday, September 16, 1992.

That economics guru was David Cameron: a special advisor to the financial secretary to the treasury. It was followed by five years of boom and bust.

Labour spends, Tory mends?

Don’t make me laugh.

Mr Cameron was re-elected back in May because the British people were brainwashed by Tory propaganda that Labour were to form a pact with the SNP because another hung parliament was likely.

I suggest you should have a reality check.
