Hanif Kureshi On Thatcherism
'I never understood the elevation of greed as a political credo. Why would anyone want to base a political programme on bottomless dissatisfaction and the impossibility of happiness? Perhaps that was its appeal - the promise of luxury that in fact promoted endless work'
From P.70 of Kureshi's flawless, amoral novella 'Intimacy' (Faber & Faber)
