Letter: Thatcher's legacy.
I WOULD Like to reply to the letter from Jack Johnson (Daily Post, Tuesday, August 19).
Either Mr Johnson was rather too young in 1997, or he chooses to forget the terrible state that his party left the country in, which took 12 years of Margaret Thatcher to bring round. And when she left office she left the country with a sound financial structure.
Perhaps Mr Johnson does not remember the streets full of ratinfested litter, people being unable to bury their deceased, the bread queues and their then leader Jim "Sunny Jim" Callaghan attempting to deny that there was any crisis.
Rather than criticise Mrs Thatcher, Jack Johnson should thank God for sending her.
I would also like to refer to the comments made by Lord Parnell, with whom she was paired while in Parliament. He said: "She is a very honourable and straightforward person, and I had no complaint during the 15 years we paired."
