I wonder if Thatcher attempted this?

I missed this wonderful piece of intellectual claptrap.  The other day one time SDP supporter, failed Tory candidate, failed advisor to Major and Hague, one Daniel Finkelstein had a go at working out the percentage chance of Brown going after the June elections.  It is wonderful stuff.

What a pity our Danny wasn't at his prime in another era.  Can you imagine back in 1975 Maggie sitting down with Denis and working out mathematically her chances of overthrowing Heath?  No, nor could I.

Is this the same Daniel Finkelstein who, as chief leader writer of The Times, wrote this on the same day?  We should be told.
