Lecture 106 - Margaret Thatcher: Britain's most successful revolutionary?
Nine years after her death, Margaret Thatcher, admired and detested in equal measure in her lifetime, continues to divide opinion. ‘That bloody woman’, ‘conqueror of fascism’, ‘feminine icon’, ‘a woman but not a sister’, ‘saviour of the economy’, ‘destroyer of British industry’, ‘Churchillian war leader’, ‘Cold War victor’, ‘outstanding international stateswoman’: such are some of the contradictory epithets applied to her.

Leader of the Conservative Party for fifteen years, Prime Minister for eleven, she won three general elections in a row, and can be said to have changed the character of UK politics. In this talk, we will survey the key features of her extraordinary career and offer an assessment of her legacy.
