What Mrs Thatcher was not — 6 Comments

  1. Grannymar,

    The policies of the Israeli government have alienated people allowing anti-Semitism to slip in under the radar. I have heard so called “liberal” people say astonishing things that they wouldn’t dare say about any other group of people.

    The turning away from Israel has meant that even the Daily Telegraph, which I read on Saturdays and during holidays, has forgotten about Golda Meir.

  2. I’d forgotten about her too. Indira Ghandi came to mind (although not in the ‘western world’ I admit). Is it anti-semitism or anti Israel? I must say I don’t think of it as a Jewish state but rather just an increasingly defensive nation. Enjoy your DVD’s! (Shame it’s not the life of Merv Hughes!)

  3. Baino,

    I agree with you, it is the Israeli state, and not all of it is in favour the security policies, and only a tiny part of it is Zionist. However, I have met anti-Semitism presenting itself in the guise of being against the Israeli government.

    I always think of Merv as the archetypal Australian 😉

  4. I still associate Maggie with maternity care???

    My first child was born after a long night in labour, as the sun rose on 08/06/83 and I was then subjected to a full day of non-stop news coverage of Maggie’s re-election to power, loudly blaring from a TV in the middle of a large post-natal ward.

    Give me labour/Labour any day 😉

  5. Well spotted. Hmm, an eight-DVD collection, not for the faint-hearted then. I waited many a year for that reign of terror to end, and have no wish to revisit those years. Not that the current lot are any improvement.
