To make up for missing the instant-reaction-to-Thatcher boat, I have written three short blogs on the subject:
1. Why was Thatcherism relatively unpopular in Scotland?
This one is fairly self explanatory
2. Thatcherism and the Idea of Policy Imposition.
It suggests that the myth of Thatcherite top-down policymaking is exaggerated.
3. The Unintended Consequences of Thatcherite Policies
Nevertheless, Thatcherite policies often had profound effects and unintended consequences.
