Thatch Coll still being quoted after over a quarter of a century

I'm surprised to find that Thatcherism Goes to College is still being quoted after all these years. (I call it Thatch Call for short, for convenience.) I was clearing out some surplus copies the other day - you can have one for £1 plus postage if you email me - and I noticed how god-awful the two-colour cover was, and how tame the scariest predictions for what would happen to education were compared to what actually happened.

The book, which I wrote in 1989, is now "historical background" to articles about the politics of education by Marxist academics (meta-academics?)
