For our new members, some reading of this historical period is necessary. What Thatcher did was to break the post-war political concensus concerning the importance of the Welfare State and making people’s lives better to bring in a form of ruthless social-darwinist neo-capitalist order and begin the dismantling of the Welfare State that Blair and Brown have nearly destroyed. She introduced a “dog-eat-dog” mentality into British culture with infamous statements such as “There is no such thing as society.” Also, concerning the Falklands War, she knew of Argentine intentions to recover what was really their own territory and is a war criminal insofar as she gave orders for the sinking of the Belgrano when it was moving away from the Falklands area back to its own territory. Many young conscripts died as a result. Also look at her continuing support for Chile’s General Pinochet who massacred thousands of innocent civilians during the CIA sponsored coup against the legitimately elected government of Salvador Allende.
I could go on for several paragraphs but I’d also recommend that our younger members talk to their parents and relatives for a much fuller picture. Britain’s present problems, the high cost of living, expensive houses all go back to her era and resulted in the birth of New Labour whose most odious example Peter Mandelson said in the late 90s – “We are all Thatcherites now.” Well, not everyone, only the richer elements of society.

“Most Australians believe in God This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.”

I believe that racism is an unexceptable part of our society.it can not be exceptable that because a man or a womens skin is any different than mine they are any lesser person.

If i go abroad i take on the customs of that country if it is not exceptable to drink i do not, i follow there customs and even though it may seem alien to me i except it.I deplore violence and the extremist view taken by a section of many communities,i can say you will never win. i am proud of this country and i wish people coming here good luck and i hope they prosper but i ask again join with us to see this country grow and of course the choice is open ,i feel the last paragraph says it all.
