Toynbee Turns

Left-wing firebrand Polly Toynbee does an about turn and brands government in Britain today worse than under her arch-enemy Thatcher in the 1980s

 

Polly Toynbee was always amongst the loudest voices of the left in Britain. She has been known to rant and rave in support of atheism, the SDP and unilateral nuclear disarmament but on Saturday, this great-great niece of philanthropist and economic historian Arnold Toynbee surprisingly branded the government of Theresa May to be worse than that of Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s.

 

In a wide-ranging interview about working at The Guardian, when asked: “How does this political moment compare with others you have lived and worked through?” Umbrian villa owning Toynbee answered:

 

“There has never been an austerity like this in my life-time. If Thatcher’s 1980’s cuts seemed savage, I would never have guessed a future Tory party would go so much further than she dared, in shrinking the state, crushing local government, squeezing the NHS as never before, leaving schools bereft. As for the shock Brexit vote, it has split the country in half in ways it may take decades to repair, if ever, as it sends Britain into a downward spiral. These are the darkest days I have known – plenty to write about, but very hard to think of optimistic themes.”
