Oh and it wasn't a few weeks in the 70s ...it  started in 1970 and went through the whole decade in one form or another....that's why we ended up with over a decade of bliddy Thatcher....  

 

I did explain that Baz... Ted Heath was in power in the first half of the seventies ..it was 1973 and again in 78/79. 

But the point that I was making was that it started in 1970.... with power cuts due to work to rule .....and I think ....although I might be wrong the It was Harold Wilson then.....the thing is it didn't matter which party was in power ....and again from memory there were two Labour PMs and two Conservative ....it was the unions and hardcore Left that caused the problems  

No: that was Heath. It was the miners' strikes during his premiership that led to him imposing the Three-Day Week, and eventually losing the 1974 election. The strikes ended almost immediately after Labour came to power.

 

The 1978-79 "Winter of Discontent" was under James Callaghan, though, and that of course led to Thatcher wining the 1979 election...

I know all that Eugene .....I was there ....but I know it started in 1970 cos I was working for the electric board when the work to rule started the power cuts

succinctly put Pirate ..yet the BBC is still spinning the Tory line 

 

I have just watched Diane Abbott being interviewed in Manchester about security, police numbers and troops in the streets. I have to say that I don't think she is the best mouthpiece for the Labour party.

 

I watched and listened quite carefully and she started out answering as though she was thinking about the next word, very stilted and comes across as someone not confident in what they are saying. I then noticed that when asked another question she started to answer and unlike most politicians who get interrupted she stopped dead and listened to the interjection, it felt very much like she was pleased she was interrupted, kind of 'phew, got through that'.

 

It may just be me, but I really don't rate her.

 

"JC, get another more confident and much more eloquent public speaker" ...QUICK.

 

 

 

To be fair EC and I don't rate her much either..I also find Theresa May completely useless without a script and I'm not believing this Operation Temperer either...we haven't enough police and that's why the army has been called in. 

 

By the way, I though all campaigning was cancelled...Tory leaflet through my letterbox whilst I was out this afternoon and I have left a polite note on the door saying no Tory Crap, I think I'll have to be a bit more forceful

Well obviously they don't think that THEIR stuff is c***. It's the stuff that ANTI-Tories must be shoving through your door, to which you refer!
