Two articles in Murdoch papers over the last couple of days would have amused me if they weren’t enough to simultaneously reveal the stupidity of News International.
First there was The Sun lauding Patrick Minford. He’s the economist who came out on Thatcher’s side in 1981 to praise the destruction of UK manufacturing.
Jeebus, if the Senior Lecturer at Islington Tech cannot even realise that UK manufacturing today is larger than it was under Thatcher, that manufacturing output rose over her term(s) then really,what hope is there for his poor students?
whilst assuming the UK can afford to give up all existing tariffs without consequence arising.
Err, no, he says there will be consequences, and they’ll be good.
