An insult for all parents from Unite

Never knowingly under-melodramatic, Derek Simpson of MSF/AEEU, Amicus, cough, Unite, has this to say:

"The current generation of parents are Thatcher’s children. They had badly funded schools and a social services network bled dry by Tory cost cutting. Among this generation is an army of the poorly educated and economically deprived. All that stands between them and disaster is the support of social and health services".

He also says"If David Cameron were Prime Minister, the recession would last till doomsday".

I suspect he has even less understanding of the economic cycle than Brown, frankly.

11 years of Labour spending haven't undone the ills of Thatcherism?
Shes been gone for 16 years. If you are a 30 year old now, probably with your own kids then you are 100% Blair's children.

Ahem, Mr Quango ... it's 18 years next Friday.

As for the man Simpson, he is always good for a laugh.

very worthy, I'm sure, but all this is mere distraction from the story of the day -

The Polish government donated a combined rice-clean machine to the DPRK-Poland Friendship Jangsuwon Co-op Farm

I agree with BQ - these people might have been born when Margaret Thatcher was around, but the welfare state and subsequent destruction of family life is Labour's legacy thank you very much.

Gents - Our friends on the Left will be blaming 'Fatcher' for anything and everything for years to come - you'll see.

ND - Yes, I'd noted that, but didn't want to kill the goose etc by overdoing DPRK watch. Plus I took the afternoon off...

So just how old is this Simpering berk and where and when was he "educated"?  

Blogger Croydonian said... 10:19 am

He looks to be 64. I can find no trace of his childhood education, but he took an OU degree in maths and computing in '87.
