Why don’t you go back to writing about new economic models Mr Kaletsky, and leave the austerity vs stimulus debate to the kids?

It was that which financed her economic incompetence.

It must also bribe a large proportion of the electorate (remembering the toruies under Mrs Thatcher never got as much as 50% of the vote) by selling off public utilities to them at knock down prices.

This is a trick that cannot be repeated in Britain. We have nothing worth any money left.

In other words, If Europe wants Thatcherism, it must abandon the truth and adopt the fraud, back to the old chancy lane.
