Edward Heath said that Tony Blair was further to the right than he was, so I wouldn't be surprised. I'm not entirely sure of the exact differences between Thatcherism and simple, traditional Conservatism, but she did seem more to the right in some ways, and less so in others, which does fit the model of where Blair tried to take the Labour Party. Interesting (if disturbing) to think that we can now be in a position where the Labour Party is more right wing than the Tories were just a generation ago; but that's probably a discussion for a different forum.
