Here's all i have to say on Margaret Thatcher-i grew up in a time and country where women were very subservient and deferring to men-very easily
ruled and overruled-something that i found pathetic and infuriating-so i respected her feisty,spirited nature,and the way she held her own in a
Because i'm South African,we did not suffer financially from her politics-after the stories i have read on here from members who did,as children,or
young adults-i extend my sympathy.
However,i grew up in a country where there never WAS any free milk-or free anything,except state hospitals for the unemployed/very poor.If your
parents could not supply you with food for school,or milk-too bad,you drank water and went hungry.No dole,no help for the unemployed-you were on your
own.I am white,we were poor and disadvantaged under the Apartheid regime,under the current regime we are not much better off-no one in this country is
used to ever being dependent on the politicians of the day,except those benefiting from nepotism+cronyism,who,like Julius Malema,finds out that the
tide can turn very swiftly.Those that felt they could be,are soon disillusioned.The current government benefits very few black+colored people,and
actively goes out of their way to disadvantage whites.
We learned from childhood to be independent,and to make a way for yourself-no one in any regime is gonna do you a favour,or be your safety net.
