Conservatives’ new ‘share-owning democracy’ plans – Telegraph.

Perhaps, we shall see the “Son of Sid”? Sid was a popular fictional character at the time of Margaret Thatcher’s privatizations who was pretty smart and people listened to Sid; at the time, the media were full of views on Sid. With the average household, in sharp economic pain surely, there is a place for the Son of Sid?

Any views?

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!

What do you think?
