I think it is fair to sat we in the celtic fringes of Britain, northern England and the west country, Scotland, wales and Northern Ireland we never quite as besotted with Margaret Thatcher as our neighbours in the Anglo Saxon south east. While those Germanic folks loved having a bossy madam giving them orders, we celts are more independent.
This enabled us to be more objective about what was going on. So here's the inimitable and very celtic Boggart Blog's unique tribute to Mrs Thatcher and the effect her policies had on our regions.
A song originating from the hardships on the late 19th and early 20th centuries that we used to sing in the playground at school, not understanding the significance at the time (well we got our free milk in the 1950s)seemed an appropriate way to remember the havoc caused in industrial areas by the economic and business policies of Margaret Thatcher's government.
