GUEST,Musket sans cookie BS: Where now Thatcher haters? (453* d) RE: BS: Where now Thatcher haters? 20 Sep 12


Teribus, on this one you are slightly wrong

Toyota would not have heard of The Beast of Bolsover, as Bolsover is up North and the Toyota plant is down in The Midlands. I come from and at the time was living in The People's Republic of Bolsover (Shirebrook Cooperative) and if was a bloody long way to the other side of Derby. In fact when I was involved in planning the local NHS we had no clinical links to the midlands, due to no transport links either, so fail to see the link to Burnaston. The Council, under its leader David Bookbinder swung the deal and that pissed off Th*tcher and her mates because Toyota weren't so politically obsessive with socialism.

The mining areas have attracted some inward investment to be fair, but having been involved in such matters in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and South Yorkshire I can say that what there has been has been little given the available workforce and almost all of it despite of rather than because of her, Minor or the Islington Socialist Tories that followed.

The pit I worked at is long gone. She is still with us. A bit like this morning's glory is long gone but my corn on my foot is still here.
