So how many remember this year?

Just after Thatcher came in and already for myself I was made redundant for the first time and the recession was in full swing.

Just to Remind you, This 1981 view of Britain is almost a Reality today in 2017, Do you Want the Tories back in power for 5 More Years ?;
Because the Future of the NHS under them is NIL; And total scrapping of ALL Benefits and Retirement Pension, cannot be ruled out.
NOTHING IS SAFE WITH A TORY Government, so Think who you will support on June 8th 2017

Clue;

LABOUR B)

Yes, remember that year very well.
The year I left school after finishing my last exam with an apprenticeship under my belt ready to start in July.
Went away at the begging of June for one last family holiday.
Only to return to find a letter tell me that the apprenticeship was wiped out and been replaced by the good old YOP schemes, thanks to Thatcher.
Spent the full day at the career's centre with about 2000 other people who lost apprenticeship just to be told we would put into teams of 5 to go to old age pensioners gardens to tidy them up for the council.
Fast Forward 35 years and the still the same crap but now called the CWP.
