I'm not sure I understand you correctly. The current bunch are just as bad as the mob that were in power between 1979 and 1997. I see no difference at all.

Funny in the North East considering things still blamed on Thatcher one would think she were still alive.
It can't be that many families still impacted by it though. After 40 years. Maybe it's just residual resentment. It would be an interesting topic for a BBC documentary. Thanks for your perspective.

Some of those who held positions back then, rather than just simply being members of the party, even including a former PM, have been in disagreement with the current bunch and not just about the one issue.

Norman Tebbit has not joined them.

Heaven help us if BoJo resigns/retires, and she puts herself up for leader of the Tories or dare is say it PM (just because she has a top Cabinet post and she's Asian so it's good PR to have a non-white major party leader/PM).
She is British. Mrs May fired her because of her activity in Israel without permission.

(She is far too right-wing for my liking!)

She can't be all bad - she's proposing Vindaloo Visas!

Well I guess depends on which town, but the towns I know well even decades after the fact most families I come across directly were affected and this led to the next generations degradation socially and economically such that living off benefits a standard way of life. Add in cost of bus fares and petrol, for many getting a job in Newcastle would mean less that what they receive in benefits- so better to take the benefits and work a bit for cash or selling drugs or whatever. Petty crime is rampant compared to decades before, only growth industry on the High Street seems to be charity shops. I would hazard a guess cost to the government the last 40 years has far exceeded the savings from closing the pits.

Yes, could be. It's a shame. Apart from attracting Nissan, insufficient local investment I suppose. I don't know the area well enough to know what could have been done. It's probably successive governments prioritising the SE over every other region. At least the NW (Manchester etc) is getting some notice now.

Yes the North east is out of sight out of mind for the London-based parties and elite. There is a North Eats party that has a town council seats here and there.

And those actions were dishonest and corrupt. She should never have been called up to high-Cabinet office again for that alone.
I know she's British. But she's clearly non-white. I don't see how that's offensive to cite. I just reckon she may challenge for Tory leader, due to the positive PR of her being the first non-white major party leader. And she shouldn't do it - given her record.

the question and topic at hand is Priti Patel. I know that Savid Javid holds a big Cabinet role too.
