    “Unconfortable” is an understatement. His support for the Contras in Nicuagua and the fascists in El Salvador were simply unforgivable and shocking.
    His courting of the religious right has left US politics in a desperate state.
    His neo-liberal ideology led to light touch regulation and a toxic financial sector that still has some very nasty suprises lurking in the background.

    He was a disaster.

    Hat making was established in the Luton area many years before “The London Hatter” Richard Vyse came to town. He did, however, set up Luton’s first hat factory, leading the change away from a “cottage industry” where people worked from home.

    Well yes Geoff, fair point. But I wasn’t attempting to make a serious analysis of Reagan’s record – I was just reminded of that clip.

    Martin of course you are right. That is what I should have said. Post now corrected.
