Yes, its quite something that the vile heartless right wing hospital-wrecking scumbag appears considered, coherent, warm and mainstream when compared to the current cabal of kleptocractic incompetents headed up by a drunken layabout and herded by a meglamaniac running plays from the fascist power handbook

I'd be suspended if I was up on that charge. As would a doctor, dentist etc.

What if a woman in his constituency needs to meet her mp? She's potentially not safe. But as long as the party is protected, that's all that matters. This isn't a Tory thing. It's a safeguarding matter.

She would have been all over it from January onwards and been decisive and steadfast. As a research scientist herself she would also have understood the options available and their possible consequences.
Wasn't her research mainly in the realm of ice cream?

I think she was one of the first world leaders to read the science and accept that climate change was man made.

Yes. She invented a way to put more air into mr whippy.
So she was snatching milk away from children even then.

One of my recent favourite moments of karma is Charlie Elphicke having been refused legal aid for his sexual assault train. With him having always voted against changing the legal aid thresholds. Fully deserved.

Waste of time. My dad was an ice cream man. They'd already discovered the formula for selling kids air.

The only plausible explanation of this is that Grayling will provide advice, and Hutchison Ports will do the exact opposite.

I might not have liked Thatcher, but she wasn't un pragmatic in the face of a real problem, or someone's paid for puppet. Her response to AIDS and HIV was reasoned, unlike America. Same with the Ozone and CFCs.

A worthy 'enemy', I don't think she was deliberately selling out the people, I think she really believed in things like the trickle down effect, and that, at least for some, her policies would make their lives better and create upward mobility, at least among a portion of the upper working classes.

Instead he was drinking himself into a stupor everyday in the tax payer funded country estate while tupping his latest squeeze and arranging his latest divorce.

Cobra meeting? Not for this trouser snake, Tally Ho, that will be 72 escorts and counting
She was a lab assistant who got herself sacked for being hopeless.

But not because she had read the evidence and thought it justified action. Her great spasm of concern about ozone happened in autumn 1989 and 1990. This was just after the 1989 Euro elections in which two key things happened - (1) the Labour Party beat the conservatives for the first time in a national vote since 1974 and (2) the Green Party came from nowhere to poll 15%. Research showed that about a third of those green votes were defecting tories. Thatchers sudden conversion to the environment was 100% self interest. In her later gin-sodden senescence, she was an enthusiastic climate change denier, as of course was her chum Nigel Lawson. Scientist she may have been once but if science and capitalist ideology ever conflicted, ideology would win, you may be sure if that.

We used to have the triangle ones where 90% of the time the milk had a brain of it's own and tried to escape.
