    I'm glad someone else said that, I've been thinking it for weeks

    I am very wary of the conservatives being in power as I was a working class child of the 80s who was brought up in a small mining town. It's hard to forgive and forget how the conservatives treated the poor back then. I still remember the devastation that was caused to families and witnessed how communities were torn apart. We were lucky as my Dad was a plumber and my Mum was a nurse, but many of my Dad's brothers and friends were not so lucky.
    I also went to a poor area school where we had no supplies and shared old text books ect.. Also where we were taught by teachers who had no knowledge of the subjects they were teaching due to cut backs and underfunding.


    I just hope lessons have been learned and that we don't have a repeat of the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer like the last time they were in power. Maybe having the Libdems in there will keep some sort of balance. I really don't know though.

    Same here. I can't forgive what they did to my family. My brother is still paying back his debt to Thatcherism.

    That's what I find so fascinating about politics. Two people's experience can differ so widely. For me the Thatcher/Major years were nothing but good. I left school and started a summer job before college. I had money in my pocket for the first time. Mum and Dad had it good due to Dad having unlimited overtime. They were forever abroad. I bought my first home. I know there will be similar stories whoever is in power but I'm just interested how things differ around the country.

    it was a much better time for us too claire, you can only go by your own experiences, everyone exp is different. its a real shame people suffered for one reason or another and they see others prosper, but thats how life is i guess
