... or indeed both. This is also the story of the first post-Cold War Prime Minister, John Major (now Sir John).

In 'The future's not ours to see, ', his review of Atkinson and Elliot's Going South, in Lobster 65,1 Simon Matthews offered a kind of alternative history of British history in the 1970s and 80s, in which Mrs Thatcher did not win the general election of 1979. Michael Morton contacted me to let me know such speculation had already been done by Andrew Marr in 1993 on BBC television; and that the scenarios discussed by Marr and various interviewees had originally been published in his magazine Alternate Worlds in January 1995.2 Very kindly, Michael Morton supplied a copy of the transcript of that Andrew Marr piece.

... 1982 publication, The City: A Socialist Approach.1 4 And so, on with the political economy. What do Osborne and Cameron think they are doing? W hen Cameron and Osborne took office I used to speculate with a couple of correspondents about what they thought they were doing. It was obvious that they had one eye on the first Thatcher government which raised interest rates (and so reduced demand in the economy) in 1981 while in a recession of their own making. This was the incident which provoked the letter signed by 364 economists, who wrote, inter alia: 'There is no basis in economic theory or supporting evidence for the Government's belief that by deflating demand they ...

... a largely accurate overview of the UK economy today; and, unsurprisingly, it doesn't make happy reading. As to how this all came about, they write at length about the failure to set up a sovereign wealth fund to invest the income from North Sea Oil and remind us (p. 189) of the casual spite of the Thatcher years by quoting Nigel Lawson's 1984 Mansion House speech in which he admitted that most jobs created in the future in the UK would be 'no tech'. (Up until then the line had been that 'low tech' employment was a temporary tactical manoeuvre to recover competitiveness in the global economy.) This is all fine; but amidst ...
