Its the 30th anniversary of the first publication of The Independent on 7th October. I’ll have more to say on that.

That first front page from 1986 is striking though. Looking at the outcome of that year’s Tory conference it reports that Mrs Thatcher had driven the pound to an all time low. Theresa May this week, has managed merely a 31 year low.

This is not the be all and end all of an analysis of British capitalism but imagine what the media would say if I was drawing a comparison here between two Labour Premiers 30 years apart..
