Margaret Thatcher - Capitalism and a Free Society

(15:31) From an interview with conservative American author and commentator William F. Buckley Jr. in 1977, when Margaret Thatcher was leader of the Conservative Party but not yet of the country. The theme of the discussion was "what has been learned from the failure of British socialism?"

The creation of money out of nothing but interest on debt - otherwise known as Usury - is a sin abhorred by God. Capitalists beware.

Latest comment: Put her funeral out to tender and let the cheapest private business bury her. The tax payer should not be forced to pay for it but let the fawning politicians put their hands in their pockets. When I die. my family will have no choice but to pay my funeral fees. The are human parasites. I have no empathy for this hard politician just as she had none for millions of destroyed lives.

difficult to disagree with any of that, but what she ACTUALLY DID was cut all of the systems designed to help people improve themselves and become wealth creators, fail to invest and allow the country's infrastructure to fall apart...

People improve themselves by themselves , what' systems' are you referring to, surely not govt? Te best thing govt. can do is to let people do what they do best and not impede them with thousands of rules and regulations apart from the basic rule of law which govt should enforce evenly to everybody.

Because? Because what she and her government at the time systematically took money from the less well off to funnel into the pockets of the better off who were, and remain, largely Tory. It's easy to be a 'wealth creator' when you have the money to start with.

All I've heard for the last few days is this contemptible woman's name. She made a name for herself being ruthless, bloody-minded and self-serving while ignoring the interests of the people who actually did the work that makes the money (which is a lot of folk, but excluding politicians, in my opinion). She set the seal on a long, slow decline for this country which is only now making itself fully felt. And the bitch is getting a state funeral. Personally, I'd chuck the cadaver out for the gulls on some landfill site somewhere.

The reason people like Thatcher get voted in is because numpties like 'Casey' get to vote.
