No Prime Minister!: Margaret Thatcher tries to abolish economists

The "Yes Real Prime Minister" (AKA The Thatcher) Sketch from 1984 staring Paul Eddington, Nigel Hawthorne and Margaret Thatcher. In this sketch, written by Thatcher, the Prime Minister, played by Thatcher, wants the Minister, Eddington, and Sir Humphrey Appleby, Hawthorne, to abolish economists.

One problem with the sketch is that if you watched Yes Minister you would know that Sir Humphrey had a 1st from Oxford in classics, not a double first in politics and economics.
