    Thatcher: The G.O.P.’s Favorite Foreigner

    Margaret Thatcher, who died Monday morning at 87, was American conservatives’ favorite foreigner.

    When Sarah Palin traveled to London she requested a meeting with the former prime minister. (That Mrs. Thatcher declined, reportedly because her aides found the prospect of such an encounter “belittling,” is another matter.) In advance of the Republican primaries, Newt Gingrich showed his deep respect for Mrs. Thatcher by comparing himself to her. “Because I am much like Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, I’m such an unconventional political figure.”

    Her status as a right-wing icon, a hero of modern conservatism almost on par with Reagan, shows no sign of declining with her death. Republican House Speaker John Boehner said earlier today that she was the “greatest peacetime prime minister in British history.” And Representative Steve Stockman, Republican of Texas, released a statement praising Mrs. Thatcher for taking “a sledgehammer to the machinery of liberalism.”

    Her conservative reputation was, and is, mostly deserved. She took on the unions. She made cutting remarks about socialism. “To cure the British disease with socialism was like trying to cure leukemia with leeches,” she once said. The trouble with socialist governments, she said on another occasion, is that “they always run out of other people’s money.”

    But today’s Republican Party would likely find her policies a bit too left wing. In 2011, Bruce Bartlett wrote in The Times that Mrs. Thatcher “paid for her 1979 tax cut by nearly doubling the value-added tax to 15 percent, from 8 percent.” She also “did little to reduce the size of the nation’s welfare state” and “strongly supported the National Health Service.” That bears repeating: She supported socialized medicine.

    She also supported science, including climate science.  The Daily Beast’s David Frum pointed out that more than 20 years ago, in 1990, she publicly acknowledged that global temperatures were rising. “The threat to our world comes not only from tyrants and their tanks. It can be more insidious though less visible. The danger of global warming is as yet unseen, but real enough for us to make changes and sacrifices, so that we do not live at the expense of future generations,” she said at the second world climate conference. “Many of the precautionary actions that we need to take would be sensible in any event. It is sensible to improve energy efficiency and use energy prudently…it’s sensible to re-examine industrial processes.”

    However much Mrs. Palin and Mr. Boehner revere Mrs. Thatcher, the icon, their party wouldn’t welcome Mrs. Thatcher, the actual politician. Of course it wouldn’t welcome Reagan, either, who was known for approving budget deals that included raising taxes.

    Just a mild twist on the endless left wing talking point that today's GOP is too conservative for Reagan....

    The usual bull crap...

    "The Daily Beast’s David Frum pointed out that more than 20 years ago, in 1990, she publicly acknowledged that global temperatures were rising."

    Heck, they were rising 20 years ago. But not any more !

    Today's Eurosocialist Democratic Party would find Britain's radical Labor Party of the 1970s their cup of tea, no doubt.

    Same class warfare, same destructive ruination of the private sector economy.

    Both Reagan and Thatcher were extraordinary human beings that returned their respective countries to econcomic and political prominence, much to the benefit of the entire world.

     

    RIP both of them.

    All of that was and remains true. She wouldn't, however, have supported the needless wholesale destruction of western economies in order to satisfy leftist sensibilities.

    That said, Thatcher is far more despised in her homeland than she is revered.  Section 28 was barbaric, and her disdain for the poorer classes was evident.

    OTOH, she did absolutely nothing to hinder socialized medicine or the NHS.

    The Republicans don't represent the right in the same way the Democrats represent the left.  Even within the Republican party there is wide disagreement on goals, ie. ideology.  Heck, even you were pushing the "civil war" in the Republican party.  so, any way you look at it, there is no capability to push and maintain the ideological purity test that the left has.

     

    If you beleive Thatcher had distain for poor people, you are just drinking union propaganda.  Unemployment dropped during her reign from @11% to @5%.  That benefitted everyone, including the poor, many who now had work.

    Additionally, the U.K. went from being a short ride to oblivion to back on their feet overall.  That benefitted everyone, including the poor.  You see, when government sticks to what it does best, and gets out of the way of free enterprise, even the poor are better off.  That's the main economic takaway from the Thatcher years.

    As far as socialized medicine, well, she was wrong.

    You do tremendous harm when you push such lies about Thatcher.  Have you not heard that it is improper to speak ill of the dead?

    I have a number of pals in the UK and have it on good authority that Ding D0ng the Witch Is Dead is currently the most requested song on their radio shows.

     

    Thatcher kissed up to Reagan and both were hated by the patriotic majority in England and Scotland.  Some people wonder, how did she fool so many people for so long?  Luckily, she had BBC  under her control and it portrayed her in a manner similar to Reagan ~ as one whose policies did good for their country when, in fact, it was disastrous.

     

    Here's a list compiled by folks in the UK:

     


    1. She supported the retention of capital punishment
    2. She destroyed the country's manufacturing industry
    3. She voted against the relaxation of divorce laws
    4. She abolished free milk for schoolchildren ("Margaret Thatcher, Milk Snatcher")
    5. She supported more freedom for business (and look how that turned out)
    6. She gained support from the National Front in the 1979 election by pandering to the fears of immigration
    7. She gerrymandered local authorities by forcing through council house sales, at the same time preventing councils from spending the money they got for selling houses on building new houses (spending on social housing dropped by 67% in her premiership)
    8. She was responsible for 3.6 million unemployed - the highest figure and the highest proportion of the workforce in history and three times the previous government. Massaging of the figures means that the figure was closer to 5 million
    9. She ignored intelligence about Argentinian preparations for the invasion of the Falkland Islands and scrapped the only Royal Navy presence in the islands
    10. The poll tax
    11. She presided over the closure of 150 coal mines; we are now crippled by the cost of energy, having to import expensive coal from abroad
    12. She compared her "fight" against the miners to the Falklands War
    13. She privatised state monopolies and created the corporate greed culture that we've been railing against for the last 5 years
    14. She introduced the gradual privatisation of the NHS
    15. She introduced financial deregulation in a way that turned city institutions into avaricious money pits
    16. She pioneered the unfailing adoration and unquestioning support of the USA
    17. She allowed the US to place nuclear missiles on UK soil, under US control
    18. Section 28
    19. She opposed anti-apartheid sanctions against South Africa and described Nelson Mandela as "that grubby little terrorist"
    20. She support the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia and sent the SAS to train their soldiers
    21. She allowed the US to bomb Libya in 1986, against the wishes of more than 2/3 of the population
    22. She opposed the reunification of Germany
    23. She invented Quangos
    24. She increased VAT from 8% to 17.5%
    25. She had the lowest approval rating of any post-war Prime Minister
    26. Her post-PM job? Consultant to Philip Morris tobacco at $250,000 a year, plus $50,000 per speech
    27. The Al Yamamah contract
    28. She opposed the indictment of Chile's General Pinochet
    29. Social unrest under her leadership was higher than at any time since the General Strike
    30. She presided over interest rates increasing to 15%
    31. BSE
    32. She presided over 2 million manufacturing job losses in the 79-81 recession
    33. She opposed the inclusion of Eire in the Northern Ireland peace process
    34. She supported sanctions-busting arms deals with South Africa
    35. Cecil Parkinson, Alan Clark, David Mellor, Jeffrey Archer, Jonathan Aitkin
    36. Crime rates doubled under Thatcher
    37. Black Wednesday – Britain withdraws from the ERM and the pound is devalued. Cost to Britain - £3.5 billion; profit for George Soros - £1 billion
    38. Poverty doubled while she opposed a minimum wage
    39. She privatised public services, claiming at the time it would increase public ownership. Most are now owned either by foreign governments (EDF) or major investment houses. The profits don’t now accrue to the taxpayer, but to foreign or institutional shareholders.
    40. She cut 75% of funding to museums, galleries and other sources of education
    41. In the Thatcher years the top 10% of earners received almost 50% of the tax remissions
    42. 21.9% inflation

    I'm not lying.  Ask the Brits.  Maggie may have earned some respect, but her legacy is very much tarnished among rank-and-filers, if not as much perhaps among the british ruling class.

    That you don't know this makes me wonder what else escapes your personal notions of conservatism.

    And Section 28 WAS barbaric.  Period.

    Re: Thatcher: The G.O.P.’s Favorite Foreigner

    The magnitude of Thatcher’s accomplishments as prime minister cannot be understood without reference to the depths into which Britain had fallen by 1979. Successive Labour (and spineless Tory) governments had delivered an economy close to collapse. During the “winter of discontent” in 197879, strikes by public employees had crippled public services. Pickets blocked the entrances to hospitals, and only those suffering emergencies were permitted entry. Railway workers and truck drivers disrupted transportation. Trash accumulated on the streets as sanitation workers walked off the job. Bodies accumulated in morgues as gravediggers joined the strikes, prompting officials to discuss burial at sea for the mounting piles of corpses.

    Thatcher’s victory ushered in a period of difficult but necessary free-market reforms. As in the U.S. under Reagan, Britain endured a tough recession as Thatcher wrestled inflation down. But the economy then rebounded and grew dramatically. She privatized state-owned industries, cut taxes on investments, radically reduced the power of trade unions, and reduced government spending. “The trouble with socialism,” she said, “is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

    Britain’s economy grew, confidence was restored, and the Labour party was forced to abandon its soft Marxism and become “New Labour” under Tony Blair.

    Besides, your list is BS, as it doesn't include her cutting unemployment in half, and turning the power back on.  It also mistates the inflation.  It was single digits during most of her term, excepting one quarter in 1980, atthe VERY BEGINNING OF HER TERM, where it reached @21.9%.

    So, I guess I'm calling BS on the whole list. It is easily dis-provable junk.  I've debunked two of the points already.  You don't think the rest are accurate, do you?

    Oh, and your wonderful pictures?  Yah, a handful of union kooks really translates into the streets being full of celebrants.  Half of them were not even born when Thatcher was in office. I saw the videos on the news that go with your pictures.  A bunch of Arafat supporting, union, socialist self-centered thugs.   Sigh.
