It was George Younger. His difficulties started in 1985 when a variety of factors resulted in deeply unpopular initial increases of 24% in domestic rates bills after the revaluation. 

 

He tried to fight off protests with Rates Relief but the damage was done and the campaign for change had a head of steam. 

 

It was that pressure the made him lobby the Cabinet to let the change happen ahead of schedule in Scotland. Thatcher, it seems, wasn’t keen but likely gave into to his request as she was already sensing divisions in her Cabinet and wasn’t as domineering as she had been earlier in her tenure as PM. 

👍🏼

Yeah had an inkling I’d remembered I’d read something like that somewhere.

Yeah it was under her government but like Thunderstruck says, initiated by the Scots in the Tory party/Scottish office at the time. Not really all Thatchers doing.

Didn't need much persuasion. And it's not like Scots Tory to defend mein Fuhrer policy imposed on 'We' Scots, as she said in an interview. :facepalm:

Maybe Scots Tories like Rifkind, Forsyth, Lang, Gove , Fox and Thunderstruck can explain why taking back our Laws, Money, Immigration and Sovereignty is great for Britain and isn't for Scotland. A bunch of traitors.

Jeremy Hunt congratulates Slovenia's transformation from a Soviet vassal state to a modern democracy.

 

Except that Slovenia wasn't in the USSR.

It was part of Yugoslavia and a member of the Non Aligned Movement during the cold war.

 

How do we keep appointing total idiots to ministerial roles?

Government's fracking policies ruled "unlawful" by the High Court.

 

Govt has basically totally ignored all scientific evidence and advice when pushing fracking.

It has also constantly refused to open any kind of public consultation.

Shareholders in government or brown envelopes?

Or both?

Yeah probably both!

Some few days for Keystone Cops Party.

 

Grayling continuing to burn vast amounts of public money.

 

Karen Brady (Northern Ireland secretary) showing industrial Grade ignorance of Irish history and sensibilities.   As well as ante-judicial discretion.

 

Amber Rudd taking a jump back into the 1970s by thinking the term 'coloured' is acceptable language.

 

Andrea Leadsom thinking that UK citizen muslims' concerns about Islamophobia should be referred to the FOREIGN office.

 

:rofl:  

:vrface:

 

None of them sackable because the PM has no other choice but to avoid upsetting all would be opponents and leadership contenders.     

 

A basket case government.

This man is a pure weasel.

 

BREXIT, a Tory scam to fill the bank balances of the wealthy.

 

“The amount I receive is not for public disclosure.” Tory Rees-Mogg cries.:lol:

 

Dispatches reveals that Brexiteer and Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg may have earned at least £7 million since the 2016 EU referendum, from an investment firm he partly owns - which has seen its profits increase since the vote.

A tad desperate if true.

Vile man, vile, there is a insidious reason why May stopped the release/ investigation into  the findings of the parliamentary historic  child abuse and its not how much it was costing.

Asylum seeker who converted from Islam to Christianity because Christianity is "a more peaceful religion" is denied asylum after the Home Office quotes several passages from the Bible proving that it's a violent faith, thereby claiming that he hadn't really converted because he doesn't understand Christianity.

And that is after the Tories rewrote the definition of child poverty.

Tip of the iceberg of those dying or in real hardship from the Tory Draconian welfare reforms.

 

Sad as feck. And people will still go out and vote Tory. And  some will even try and spin this and paint it as a small unfortunate statistic of the much needed war on dole scroungers.

Absolutely, but I wouldn't say it's 'welfare reforms' but more what the Tories normally do whenever they get into power, dressed up as 'welfare reforms'.

 

Contrary to what you may think about me, especially when I pick you up on some incorrect memes you post from time to time, I am no friend of the Tories, never have been and I can't see me ever being one either.

 

I have a story to tell, but now is neither the time nor the place, surffice to say that it's long term health related, thus I have a little bit of experience in dealing with the DWP.

You can look up how any MP has voted or abstained in these kind of votes. They leave a trail, like one leaves on the inter net.

Brutal dismissal letter.

 

Unequivocal denial.

 

It can't be left there.     There is a public interest requirement to establish the facts and prosecute any criminal offences carried out.

 

But it's the Tories.     They don't tend to give a **** about natural justice.      

 

Who could vote for these snakes?

If she doesn't take this any further then its an absolute shambles. This is from the same woman that called Corbyn a 'risk to national security'. 

 

This must be taken further. If not then it makes a complete joke of the codes civil servants are obliged to follow.

It's just another chapter in the book of disrepute this government is writing.    Ministers so accustomed to being free to leak and brief against collective responsibility that they've completely lost the plot.      This is not a government.      It's a dog-eat-dog, dystopian,   post apocalyptic horror movie.
