and perhaps you'd like to comment on the previous lot who were primarily noted for the 'years of sleaze', imprisonments, cash for questions, 15% mortgage rates, etc etc?? Different colours, but they're all the same animals.
In simple terms Maggie Thatcher set out to run the Country like a business and was quite successful -whilst she made mistakes she certainly set us on a course of prosperity which has been squandered since she left office.
Her Cabinet consisted of men who had run their own businesses and even self-made entrepeneurs like Michael Heseltine.
The sort of people we need, especially in a time like this, are practical people who understand business and not idiots who blithely hand out public cash in ill thought out and panic stricken deals like the bailing out of HBOS.
Twas she who set all the conditions that led us to where we are now - unashamed consumerism, replacing industry with finance centres and suchlike. Never look back with rose-tinted glasses - as I said they are all alike.
