In reply to G Ellison and ‘anonymous’, I remember the militant trade unions in the ’70s and ’80s, with wildcat strikes and Arthur Scargill.
Along came a certain Mrs Thatcher and her handbag and sorted them out.
And on Blunkett and Blair (the Iraq war and mass migration), all this happened under the Labour Party. Now another woman with a handbag has arrived, so look out for another Mrs T.
