I left school in 84, started work at 15. Thatcher had then decimated the steel industry up north & mining industry. Thousands of workers went on the doll or incapacity benefit. Very few proper apprenticeships back then, jobs few & far between too. I then voted Labour. I've only just now come back to them. As you know politics usually go in cycles.When your young you want to change the world , when i left school in 79 the country was in a mess with crippling strikes.
We came from working class families but we didn’t want to follow the oldies & vote blindly for the party we were expected to vote for.
We were all union members but we knew things had to change so we all voted for Thatcher at the next election .
With your vote you have a voice we used ours & we hoped the world we lived in would change , it did.
Today’s young generation have the chance to do the same , however sadly the oldies out number the young.
