‘Even Thatcher Wouldn’t do This’. Would she?

For some time I have considered the sometime comment that goes along the lines of ‘even Thatcher wouldn’t have done this’. This opinion never sat right with me. I am always reminded of what Nye Bevan said of the Tory: “No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.”

I subscribe to that view, and consider that Tories differ only in their deviousness. And as I expanded on this thought, almost supernaturally, the idea, in its full glory came to me!

Thatcher would have done just what we are seeing today; only her methods would differ, considering the aim of all Tories is the destruction of a publicly funded welfare state.

Margaret Thatcher’s agenda was to make changes by the ‘drip, drip’ effect, slowly introducing changes, getting us used to them and increasing their severity relatively slowly. Her one failing was the introduction of the hated poll tax, which was a push too hard, too quickly and was her downfall.

This administration, I believe through study and careful consideration has decided to take a different approach- that of desensitising us. Rather than introduce changes slowly and discretely, they have decided to make severe changes quickly, in the hope we desensitise and become accepting of each new encroachment into our rights and wellbeing; in effect that we become accustomed and adapt to them, expecting nothing more, nothing less.

Of course, this methodology has the added bonus of making their changes much harder to reverse (if there was a viable political opposition with the will to do so).

That is what we are up against; that is why I believe we must have an opposite and equal agenda to rid ourselves of the cultural, economic and political enemies of the proletariat.
