Seems the 21 year old, precocious, William Vague didn’t impress Thatcher quite as much as we were led to believe. Seems even she considered such a move might just jar with those people who actually had some financial experience. LINK
Seems she wasn’t too keen on the young Michael Portillo or, and we are totally with her on this one, Oliver Letwin. The desire to embrace the youth culture was not high on her list of things to do.
That was mainly down to selling off as much of the country she could get her hands on at the time regardless of the social consequences.
Hard to see what she meant by “embarrassment” though……unless?
