  1. In the piece on health inequalities, Sean refers to a report on class and health and says that “the Thatcher government delayed its publication [because they opposed its contents] until after the 1979 general election”.

    The problem is that Thatcher wasn’t elected until the 1979 election, and so she couldn’t possibly have delayed its publication.
