Thatcherism not dead

Thatcher embodied the rise of a zombie form of capitalism, something that had arisen from its discredited death in the nineteenth century when the crashes and slumps of liberalism had to be replaced by various forms of social democracy and state intervention. Neoliberalism got its first outing in Chile with Thatcher’s pal Pinochet. Thatcher set about applying the return from the dead by breaking up the material industrial base of the independent nation of Britain and then having denuded our manufacturing capacity handed it over to the European Union to privatise our railways and utilities. It is unfinished business as far as the Tories are concerned now and what remains of the post war social democratic consensus, our public services, welfare systems and the NHS, is to be broken up and put to the market. Thatcher will be remembered as the Prime Minister who gave away our national sovereignty without a mandate. She did not break the unions – the unions are still six million strong and the clearest voice of opposition to the vandalism of the coalition.

Liberals & many on the 'left' exaggerate differences between Trump & Biden; click to see what would make a real difference.
There is no effective “freedom” in a society in which working people live in poverty & billionaires live like parasites.

Biden opposed moves to rebuild Afghanistan, advising a policy of fighting terrorism in the country. He also opposed withdrawal of US troops, which Trump carried out.

@theworkerorguk Which international conflicts has biden spoken more violently than trump on? Evidence please.

Biden's regime will hold on to enclaves in the North East and work alongside Turkish invaders, continuing sanctions against the Syrian government. In general, Biden wants US global leadership, which he sees as being diminished by Trump's inconsistencies.

Biden intends to have tighter sanctions on DPRK, and to have stricter preconditions with respect to engaging on talks. The Democrat's president also intends to strengthen an alliance against North Korea. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-biden-northkorea-analysi/biden-on-north-korea-fewer-summits-tighter-sanctions-same-standoff-idUSKBN25G2QO
