Thatcherism is no museum piece – it’s alive and kicking – Telegraph.
Personally, I agree with Boris Johnson that more Thatcherism is an attractive policy option.
Unfortunately, I struggle to see David Cameron’s Government having the leadership and stamina to take up the mantle. Cameron’s record on helping small businesses has been very weak; especially on sorting out bank finance for small businesses. By and large, the current Government have turned to cronies once again – to the big consultancies and outsource providers. Surely, there’s a case for the “Return of Sid”? (Sid was an imaginary investor in Margaret Thatcher’s privatisations). Sid would surely tell “our Dave” that it’s investment stupid!
