    Blair was a lying arsehole but he absolutely wasn't a product of Thatcher. Blair invested heavily in public services, increased local authority spending, increased police and NHS funding and lowered VAT. These are opposite to the Thatcherite policies of the 80's and those being employed by Cameron and Cleggs coalition.

    Blair on the whole delivered progressive policies and Thatcherite policies are anything but.

    By invested you me wholeheartedly embraced the evil that is PFI?
    Yes Blair introduced market forces into the NHS but fell well short of privatisation. I'm not defending Blair, I'm just saying any comparison with Thatcher is without foundation.
