OK. No need for a war and peace reply ( DA that means you ) Thatcher understood that for Tories to govern she needed blue collar workers. Like me. Like my Dad. To vote for her - so she flogged us our council houses cheap and we have loved here ever since. This dopey lot think that only old Etonians and millionaires have votes that are are worth courting. They may well find that come the next election that is uncomfortably true.
