story of the Special Relationship for Conservatives
(pictured above) can be spun in a number of ways:
'The triumph of noble ideals'
'Friendships forged and not forgotten'
Together America's and Britain's Conservatives have
helped re-make much of the world in the image of
poverty and terror.
Our Conservative types brought you:
The rule of law (apart from international law that
is, we mean erm.. we replace it with the rule of
'our law', let's just call it GOD'S LAW)
Rights to your property (we can, and do, take yours)
Respect for human rights (no really, please don't
laugh, I am being serious)
These formative ideas have transformed the prospects
of nations that lived in relative peace and provided
the darkness of fear and despair. We despair for
them; the "riches" that they could have had.
And, well, we despair for our profits.
This relationship needs to be constantly renewed
and nurtured for Conservatives (but don't worry, we'll make sure
you're bombed until you understand our side of the
This is what The Atlantic Bridge was conceived to
We have created a network of like-minded (narrow-minded)
people in politics, business, academia and journalism
giving only the US accepted line who come together
to share only our views and our types' experiences.
We will draw on the experience and expertise of
our narrow-minded member-base in order to promote an agenda that
will strengthen the Special Relationship for Conservatives
(we include everybody who rightly sees non-Westerners
as terrorists (you can't say we're not fair can
you?)) and champion our brand of 'freedom' in a
rapidly changing world.
The machine moves fast, don't fall behind, it will
tread on you.
Don't get ill.
Don't be disabled.
Don't bother living, if you don't meet the

often-cited early implementation of neoliberal
policies followed in the Chilean president
Augusto Pinochet's coup d'état. Pinochet's
coup took place in the context of an economic
crisis under the democratically elected government
of Socialist Salvador Allende. After Allende
won, Richard Nixon told CIA director Richard
Helms it would be necessary to "make
the [Chilean] economy scream". After
Pinochet seized power, the so-called Chicago Boys,
members of the Pontifical Catholic University
of Chile who had strong ties to Chicago School
economists, began closely advising him in the
implementation of a number of neoliberal reforms.
Margaret Thatcher was Britain's Conservative Prime
Minister between 1979 and 1990. Thatcher was elected
to the Prime Minister's office while the British
economy stagnated. She, along with fellow Conservative
Keith Joseph, sought to resolve these problems
through the dismantling of Britain's elaborate
government economic controls, taking a tough stance
against Britain's unions following the so-called
Winter of Discontent of 19781979, and by
the prioritization of inflation control.
The Administration of Ronald Reagan governed from
1981 to 1989, and made a range of decisions that
served to liberalize the American economy. In
1981, he fired over 11,345 striking air traffic
control workers and banned them from future civil
service, resulting in the de-certification of
the Air Traffic Controllers union later that year.
These firings heralded a period of long decline
for American unions, which served as a strong
political counterweight to business and other
interests that traditionally support liberalization.
He is also credited with policies that cut taxes
for the wealthy (which was said to help the economy
via trickle-down effects). He is also often credited
with having deregulated much of the American economy,
though the 'deregulation' movement preceded his
Administration, and continued after it.
These policies are often described as Reaganomics,
and are often associated with supply-side economics
(the notion that policies should appeal to producers,
in order to lower prices, and therefore make products
more affordable, rather than consumers, in order
to cultivate economic prosperity).
The Reagan administration presided over the greatest
rise in economic inequality in twentieth century
American history. He oversaw an enormous increase
in US Debt, but his supporters credit him with
overseeing a recovery from the Stagflation crisis
of the 1970s and America's victory in the Cold
