Lady T was indeed the Eurocrats worst nightmare on trade issues, Derb–and that’s the point. She understood that there was absolutely no need to submit to idiotic regulations emanating from Brussels on (to name an example that got a lot of press while I was studying in Britain) the size and content of bangers. Let the British make their bangers, the Germans their sausages, and the Italians their salami, and then let everybody buy whatever he finds to his own taste.
Free markets yes, “harmonization” no, and glad memories of Maggie forever.
And with the primary returns finally starting to come in, I guess that will do.
