Spare us another Thatcherite clone…

I came a little late to the whole 30 year Thatcher victory anniversary thing… but there were too many parallels to the state of chaos that was engulfing the UK back then and what threatens to engulf the western world now, resist putting my oar in… With one major British political party holding the baby when disaster struck; and the other doing everything it can not to answer any of the difficult questions now being asked in the wake of a near world market collapse, I argue on Brassneck that the UK may need another Thatcher-like figure, but not another Thatcherite clone
