Thatcher: The Downing Street Years

This BBC documentary was made to coincide with the publication in 1993 of Lady Thatcher's memoirs, The Downing Street Years.  Even through the critical and biased filter of the BBC, the greatness of Margaret Thatcher and the accomplishments of her extraordinary eleven year premiership shine through.  In this presidential election year it is important that we remind ourselves of what principled, consistent, conservative leadership looks like. 

Freedom loving people throughout the world are indebted to this very great lady.

Just watched part 1...Maggie was such a pistol.

Margaret wasn't right about everything but certainly in most things domestic and foreign. She appealed to the spirit of Churchill, her predecessor, in bringing Britain back from near death...only to see it all squandered by a variety of other very wet governments since.
