Ken Livingstone criticises Thatcher's legacies

Ken Livingstone,'a former London mayor and an icon of Britain's Hard Left, has written a rational critique of what is known as Thatcherism. To be sure, Thatcher was not a deity but she was not a demon either. Her socio'-'economic and political legacies can be discussed rationally in many years to come because the world is very unlikely to end soon. Meanwhile,'it is really unfortunate that Professor Eric Hobsbawm had passed away late last year and is unable to contribute to the debates.
