In all the British history I know, the UK has never had such a horrid, liberal, radical left government. Totally without respect.
Maggie Thatcher was the last respectable leader that the UK had. Gone are the days of greatness as Churchill, as for us with Reagan.

This govt is having to clear up 13 yrs of the mess New Labour left. THAT Govt is the worst in living memory or ever.
