Life before and after Thatcher

Chris Bertram has a wonderful set of impressions wrt Britain since the 1970's.  Though most posters do not see Thatcherian neoliberalism as having been positive, a few Posters attempt a defense of Thatcher's legacy by appeal to the alleged rot of what had come before.

Tim Wilkenson has the winning post, I think so far, giving a sense of the history leading up to the (narrow) Thatcher victory.  There seems to have been a bit more or less than Democracy at work.
