It's Her Again

She of the Single European Act, the Anglo-Irish Agreement, the Exchange Rate Mechanism, the Police and Criminal Evidence Act, the Children Act, the replacement of O-levels with GCSEs, the previously unthinkable phenomenon of millions of dole claimants at any given time, the destruction of the economic basis of paternal authority in (initially) working-class communities, and so much else besides.

It was she who refused to recognise the Muzorewa-Smith Government, instead clearing the way for the Chinese-backed Robert Mugabe by holding out for the Soviet-backed Joshua Nkomo. Who would have been so much better. Of course.

And then she betrayed even Nkomo by looking the other way when 20,000 Matabele got murdered months after the betrayal of Smith and Muzorewa.
