Letter: Necessary pulling up of socks.
Dear Editor, -So many of your correspondents continually misread the effectiveness of Mrs Thatcher's strict economic policies while she was in office.
Without that relatively short period of economic stringency and a general 'pulling up of socks' all round, we would not be enjoying the prosperity, full employment and high wages that we have today.
In addition, the Thatcher-inspired economics resurgence would not have lasted so long without the country having to take some unpleasant medicine before her policies would work.
