Since May 1979 under Thatcher/Major for 18 years, we had millions of job losses, open-door immigration, wages council axed, going as low as £2 ph.

Blair, a closet Tory, carried on with Tory mass migration, privatisation and made sure the National Minimum Wage was low but looked reasonable compared with Tory wages.

Mass migration keeps wages low and inflation with more on benefits and we have millions missing from our unemployment count.

Where’s our industry?

It’s destroyed.

The UK is getting more in debt daily and is run by public school-educated workshy capitalists, all failures in business or second-rate solicitors or journalists.

For years we have had a false economy and will continue.

We are Americanised and look at the debt they are in.

If a country is successful they should not be in debt and constantly borrow.
