From Scotland on Sunday, 4th April, 2009

"Margaret Curran, the Glasgow Baillieston MSP, called on Thatcher to say sorry for neglecting Glasgow's heavy industries and for introducing the hated poll tax that contributed so much to her downfall after 11 years.

Curran said: "Margaret Thatcher should apologise to Glasgow for her policies that wreaked havoc on our city. The constituency I represent is still trying to recover from the destruction that ensued from her plans and political approach."

Somebody should remind her that Glasgow is a wealthier and healthier city today than it ever was before Thatcher came to power. I'm not saying that Thatcher was the saviour of Glasgow, but she saw something beyond shipbuilding, coalmining and sweatshop factories.
