Michael Temple argues that the new local governance system 'created' by Margaret Thatcher's reforms, when combined with New Labour's emphasis on delivering measurable improvements to outputs, has enabled Tony Blair to have unprecedented control over the public policy process. The author concludes that, far from a more pluralist political culture, the emphasis on achieving centrally determined outputs means that New Labour's governing style is more centralized and directive than the Conservatives under Margaret Thatcher; to what end is still uncertain.
