Re: The UK hasn't had Margaret Thatcher Mk 2 at all.

"Margaret Thatcher fixed the problems the country had by applying intelligence to solve the problems."

Only for a brief period and only for a small subset of them. In particular her monetary policy was a pointed disaster - no matter how much money the UK govt took out of circulation to try and curb stagflation it kept increasing.

Hitler was credited with similarly fixing the german economy and he was also elected towards the end of a global recession. The reality is that economies rise and fall mostly despite what politicians might do.
