It is astonishing that Mrs May and her perceptive foreign Secretary Boris have not been following Portugal’s progress in getting rid of austerity by doing the opposite to everyone else. Portugal is still in need of funding for its Health and Education plans, is still the poorest nation in western Europe but it has overthrown the pro austerity programme of Pedro Passos Coelho. When I asked Boris if there was a lesson to be learned from Portugal he said, “I shouldn’t think so. It seems to me that the new administration wants to help people. That is not on this government’s agenda at all..”
