    The Anatomy of Thatcherism explains how, for the first time In British history, a prime minister's name has become an 'Ism'â a symbol of a profound social change. Letwln argues that Thatcherism promoted a moral agenda rather than an economic doctrine or a political theory in order to achieve a fundamental realignment in British politics. the repercussions of Thatcherism on cities and urban communities remain deeply controversial; a recent ‘non-partisan’ academic conference titled ‘Thatcherism Now’ held in Liverpool received protests and physical threats.7 This article reintroduces the issue of the inner city into the project of under-standing the Thatcher government.

    Looking at the future of local government, this book examines the different changes, such as community charge and other financial changes, housing reforms, education reforms services, local democracy and other problems within the local government. A good article, although clearly some bias in this article: “The second focus was Thatcherism’s progressively more hard-line stance on implementing neo-liberal policies, with the enormous bonus of North Sea oil funding only a tripling of unemployment, ” I would add major tax cuts were also achieved unless you think going from 60 to 40% and 33% to 25% are not significant.
