More support for Thatcherism

Today, the UK is more Thatcherite than in the 1980s, the Guardian concludes on the basis of a survey. There is concern over income inequality, but very little support for traditional means to deal with this, such as benefits and other redistributive measures.
Thirty-five percent of respondents have confidence in the way in which trade unions are managed, which in any case is higher than confidence in banks (19%).
