Margaret Thatcher taught Britain to love business, poll finds
James Ball and Tom ClarkMargaret Thatcher taught Britain to love business, but not to hate government, according to a YouGov poll on the day of the former prime minister's funeral.
A clear majority of Britons endorse the free-market virtues that Thatcher championed, the poll – presented at a conference at the Guardian's headquarters – shows.
For example, 52% agree that "companies and industries that are not competitive … should be allowed to close", even if this means job losses. That compares with 27% who believe subsidies should be deployed to protect jobs, a practice that Thatcherites dismiss as propping up lame ducks.
