Re: THATCHER DEAD

I'm just grateful to "Thatcher the Milk-Snatcher" for stopping free milk for schoolkids. It was vile stuff. Always warm, delivered to the classroom in plastic tubs minging of sour spilled milk. So she wasn't all bad.

Re: THATCHER DEAD

Leaving aside the politics for a minute, I can't remember any other time in my life when British people have publicly celebrated the death of a public figure (and there's been some strong contenders for the honour.)

Re: THATCHER DEAD

People develop political views that are capitalist or socialist and the differences are too fundamental to ever be reconciled. But there should always be at least respect for the opposing view. Maggie was a proud Briton who did what she thought was right and defended her (our) country both politica...

Re: The Clash (The most overated band ever)

'Saw The Clash live in their early days (late 70's) and was a bit underwhelmed to be honest. I could never stomach NME's worship of this band contrasted with their hostility and/or indifference to us. It seems that The Clash always attracted the kind of left-leaning intelligentsia who can't just let...

Re: 1st STRANGLERS GIG

Hello guys, 1st post here (appropriately about my 1st gig.) It was the City Halls in Glasgow, 1977.
