The leaflet shown opposite, produced as part of the Barrow Trade Union Council's 1985 anti-cuts campaign against the Tory government's reductions in social security benefits, was widely distributed in the area.

During the premiership of 'Thatcher the Milk Snatcher', the Tory government performed a
hatchet job on British manufacturing industry.                                                                                       
It would be a mistake to claim we have no industry left - we just haven't got enough to help the economy grow out of recession.

Meanwhile, the bankers and financiers who created the economic crisis have been bailed out with tax payers' money and are back to the casino economy - gambling with billions and awarding themselves millions in annual bonuses on top of their six-figure salaries.  And the great British public let them get away with it.The Mafia must be green with envy!

And here we are once more, twentysix years later - a Tory government of millionaires cutting the benefits of the most vulnerable in our society but, this time, the 'Nasty Party' is even more nasty than it was under Thatcher and aided and abetted by the notoriously wet LibDems

FURNESS CAMPAIGN AGAINST the CUTS will be holding another street stall and petition in Dalton Road, (near the Workers' Statue), Barrow from 10am until 12 noon on Saturday 21st and inviting people to join 'the movement for change'.
