Some More Thatcherite Than Others

John Rentoul

Great detail in a YouGov poll spotted by Hopi Sen, who sent me this “Skitch”. Among those who thought Thatcher was a great prime minister, Blair is her heir; among those who thought she was terrible, Cameron is.

This is partly a false negative created by Labour supporters who disliked Thatcher and therefore say that Cameron is as bad as her. But I do rather like Blair’s lead over Cameron among the people who thought she was great.

    Did you pass GCSE Maths? Out of 101% (pollsters shish!) 54% of 397 people thought none of them were her heir and 3% (12 people) thought Blair was more right wing than Cameron and therefore worthy of being her heir. I wish I could be so easily pleased.
