Brown must be true heir of Thatcher

"Lack of interest in presentation allowed the autocue to obscure Brown's visage in his first setpiece as prime minister-in-formal- waiting. This is seen by much of the media, unsurprisingly, as a weakness. I find it something of a relief. I admired Margaret Thatcher — while abhorring much of what she offered — because she was so clearly a leader of huge substance. Blair was the dismal opposite." —Martin Jacques
