Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, Blair is not Thatcher, because Thatcher actually knew where to stop. Blair is more Major-ite, the constant need of the insecure apprentice to do more insane things to prove he has "courage".

Major's "courage" led him to privatise the railways, something Maggie actually told him not to do. A disaster that unfolds on a daily basis.

Blair's "courage" led him to privatise everything else following Brown-ite neocon priciples of abdicating responsibility for large swathes of policy that, in traditional european terms, were entirely the province of governmental control.
