How Thatcherite are you?

margaret-thatcher“We are all Thatcherites now,” declared David Cameron on the morning of Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. Not so, said Nick Clegg:

“He’s the leader of the Conservative Party he’s perfectly entitled to say that. I certainly wouldn’t call myself a Thatcherite. I’m a Liberal, she wasn’t a Liberal. I’ve always called myself a Liberal, I always will.”

Do you think you’re a Thatcherite? Well, the Daily Telegraph has devised a test to help you find out: you’re 10 questions away from finding out on how much you and The Lady (dis)agreed. You can take it here.

And yes, before anyone takes to the comments section below to complain: some of the questions will likely trip up Liberal Democrats who’ll respond, “I don’t agree with any of those bloody options.” (Especially question 5.) It’s just a bit of fun. And, for the record, I got 40%.
