Socialist actress you long ago forgot rants against Margaret Thatcher

Socialist actress you long ago forgot rants against Margaret Thatcher

Margaret Thatcher rescued Britain from its economic death.

Yet that dying patient now is glorified by the socialists and sympathizers who fought the tough medicine needed to break the death grip.

Andrew Sullivan summed it up well in a post I linked on the day of Lady Thatcher’s death:

To put it bluntly: The Britain I grew up in was insane.

One of the inmates now is helping run the asylum, and gave an epic and delusional rant in a House of Commons “Tribute” session.

Some call it a “quite righteous” speech.

Actually, it was just insane.  Like Britain once was.

Here’s a description of Glenda Jackson’s “good old days” before Margaret Thatcher uprooted the old order:

Britain’s economy was in such a dire state during the Seventies that the US warned Labour Prime Minister Jim Callaghan the UK had to live within its means, newly-released documents reveal.

The crisis was so acute that US President Gerald Ford’s administration was forced to mount a rescue mission to bail out Britain.

The country was locked in a downward spiral of double-digit inflation and inflationary union pay demands at a time of spiralling debts and a sinking pound.

The US’s concerns came in 1976 when – in what may result from the current General Election battle – Labour depended on Liberal support to maintain power at Westminster.

A senior US official is quoted in the State Department documents telling President Ford that many believed ‘the UK still does not appreciate the gravity of its situation and/or lacks the will to deal with it’….

On March 29, 1976, the Under-Secretary of State for Economic Affairs Charles  Robinson wrote: ‘The UK’s persistent double-digit inflation and low productivity  have forced abandonment of serious Bank of England efforts to defend the  pound.’

Workers, he said, have ‘demanded and been granted inflationary wage  increases’. He suggested the ‘critical’ situation may require ‘extraordinary  measures beyond the capacity of the International Monetary Fund and the European  Community [now the European Union]’.

What difference does this self-serving hags self-important rant really mean – nothing, in my opinion. Soon their Asian (Muslim) guests will be in total control of the kingdom and people like her will be walking around in black sacks. As both an actress and a politician she should fit in very nicely.

I’m sick of sick people. Done with them.

When Redgrave and her ilk are finally murdered by Muslim fanatics, I’ll have some popcorn ready to eat while watching the video. In the meantime, the likes of Redgrave here or anywhere are going down without me — and hopefully, all of us.

Failure Refusal to get the concept of creative destruction.

    I noted how she emphasized the awful idea of the acquisition of “things”.

    Or, in other words, “higher standard of living”. To include those books and the housing she said was so lacking.

    Also to include cars of vastly better quality and safety than the old state-run/union-controlled plants were putting out.

    Ah, well…people still yearn for Stalin. Some people seem to have a talent for slavery. Which is a revelation.

I really believe liberals suffer from some form of dementia. Who wants to go back to the good old days of government unions extorting huge raises and other benefits from taxpayers, and crippling the country with strikes? What Glenda fails to realize that with the taxes and regulations in the UK (in the good old days and now,) the pie does not grow. There is only so much money to go around and when spending on government workers skyrockets, there is no money left over to pay for materials (pencils and paper) in schools, plaster on walls, books in libraries and medical care for the mentally ill. Because, everyone now, “eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

    Both Margaret and Ronald were inflicted with that deforming mind disease. Just as “Religion is the opium of the people” so is the ‘lie-able’ draw to the collective enslavement. It’s the sinful nature of mankind – Just like the Good Book states. Easier to fall then to rise up.

People who live in Ivory towers should not act like they’re from Fawlty Towers.

Reminds me of the NY intellectuals who missed New York’s tarnished appearance under the Beame admin.

There’s nothing more irritating that a smug, self righteous, ignorant twit whose opportunities were actually increased by the very person they are attacking.

Progressives are like bratty children and should be treated as such.

Glenda Jackson was used by film directors to portray women as mad.

Real life follows fiction .

There is a poor fellow over at the Tele trying to eke out a living as a blog journolist. Unfortunately his mother is Glenda Jackson . I have just decided to hate. The entire family . It is much easier.

I hate all the Redgraves too & I don’t even know who they are.

    Vanessa Redgrave… actress, supporter of Travelers, as long as they don’t squat* in her garden.

    *squat: to settle on or occupy property, especially otherwise unoccupied property, without any title, right, or payment of rent

Yet another “feminist” attacking another woman. Lady Thatcher will be remembered and admired for generations to come, Glenda must resign herself to the dustbin of history.

A cloud of madness is drifting across the free world.

Another classless Collectivist.
