David Cameron: Tories are the party of ‘grafters, roofers, retailers and plumbers’ – Telegraph.

Let’s face it, it’s well-known on both sides of the Atlantic that small firms create jobs more quickly than large ones.

It’s the understanding of the UK’s shop-keeper, small-firm mentality that was Margaret Thatcher’s great strength.

With increasing technology, global competition and degrading of education standards, mainstream jobs will be increasingly harder to find. It’s no good for Ed Milband to represent the workers when there will be fewer and fewer jobs, especially because of Labour’s increasingly left-wing policies.

Small-firms and self employment are the way forward. This is a powerful message. Conservative Party commitments to small business growth will result in jobs and prosperity. It’s a shame that more Conservatives were not reading this blog over the last four years. John Gelmini and myself have certainly given them numerous policy wins.


Could Labour plus SNP in power in the UK, signal the start of a massive financial crisis, like in Greece? – John Gelmini

The answer to Dr Alf’s question is ‘yes’.

I remember Margaret Thatcher coming into office in 1979 only to discover that Callaghan had left the UK with a financial black hole.

We had to borrow money from the IMF and then thanks to Mrs Thatcher we were bailed out by the Sultan of Brunei to whom she said Britain owed a lifetime debt of gratitude.

People have short memories but should look at the history of Labour Governments–Every one of them has bankrupted the nation and inculcated “the world owes me a living attitude”.

This manifests itself in a desire to harken back to a bygone age where products of indifferent quality could be foisted on a world and Trades Union bosses roamed about like beer drinking mastodons and encouraging workers to do as little as possible whilst evading quality requirements of the kind we now take for granted.

We lost shipbuilding and most of our export manufacturing capability due to the actions of left-wing Labour Ministers and Trades Union barons who supported the sort of nonsense that Miliband propounds today.

We should be very worried indeed because history will repeat itself and those with short memories will pay.
