Margaret Thatcher dead: 10 key quotes from Glenda Jackson’s speech on the former PM #Video


10 Apr 2013 19:18

 The Labour MP ripped in to Margaret Thatcher’s record as Prime Minister during today’s Commons debate

 1. “Thatcherism wreaked the most heinous, social, economic and spiritual damage upon this country”

2. “It’s a pity she did not start building more and more social houses after she entered into the right to buy, so perhaps there would have been fewer homeless people than there were”

3. “During her era London became a city Hogarth would have recognised”

4. “We were told it was going to be called Care in the Community. What in effect it was was no care at all in the community”

5. “Everything I had been taught to regard as a vice – and I still regard them as vices – under Thatcherism was in fact a virtue”

6. “If we go back to the heyday of that era I think we will see replicated again the extraordinary human damage that we as a nation have suffered from”

7. “People knowing under those (Thatcher) years the price of everything and the value of nothing”

8. “I’m beginning to see possibly the re-emergence of that total traducing of what I regard as being the basis of the spiritual nature of this country, where we do care about society, where we do believe in communities, where we do not leave people to walk by on the other side”

9. “If we go back to the heyday of that era I think we will see replicated again the extraordinary human damage that we as a nation have suffered from”

10. “A woman (Thatcher) not on my terms”
