THATCHER-STYLE:

Tom Watson: Labour determined to stop 'Thatcher-style' Tory landslide (Anushka Asthana, 12 May 2017, The Guardian)

Tom Watson has urged voters to back their local Labour MP in order to avoid a "Margaret Thatcher-style" landslide that would make it difficult to hold the Conservatives to account.

Labour's deputy leader said the party had a "mountain to climb" over the four weeks until the general election and was lagging behind in the polls with all income groups, including working-class voters.

New Labour was only able to defeat the Tories by getting to their right, just like Bill Clinton with GHWB.  Corbyn ain't no Blair.
