Corbyn's Victory Has Changed Labour Beyond Recognition, and His Supporters Will Ensure its Oblivion

The election of Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour Party was as unsurprising as it is likely to be destructive to the party for at least the next five years. Yet the dire prospects for the future of the Party stem from a far deeper rot than simply the policies of Mr. Corbyn himself; the conduct of his supporters betrays a disturbing intolerance that will only further split and discredit the Party.

What Price, Greatness?

Mrs Thatcher had immense achievements: bringing harmony to industrial relations (reducing tenfold the number of days lost to strikes), liberating the Falklands, rejuvenating and modernising our manufacturing sector (and increasing its output), controlling inflation, almost halving unemployment in her time in office and, most significantly of all, preparing the way for the final decline and defeat of Soviet tyranny.

The final chapter of Margaret Thatcher's remarkable life story could never have been a simple RIP. It would have been a disappointing ending that would have concealed the love and loathing that she aroused in equal measure as the first woman and the longest serving Prime Minister of post-war Britain.

Reflections on Lady Thatcher - Leadership, Feminism and Legacy

Dame Tessa Jowell | Posted 11.06.2013 | UK Politics
Dame Tessa Jowell

Lady Thatcher famously observed that women had to "show [men] that we're better than they are". This was not the feminism which promotes diversity in a world of women's frequently unrealised talent, where women at work juggle the competing, sometimes almost irresolvable, demands of work, parenthood and caring. She was, for sure, a great woman in a man's world, but she did it by beating them at their own game. She was no feminist icon, nor any role model for the many young women who, we must hope, will believe strongly enough in the decent power of politics to bring about change...

The Falklands Referendum of March 2013 owes much to Margaret Thatcher. She created and maintained a political orthodoxy which remains unchallenged today. Every subsequent British government has publicly reaffirmed the right of the Falklands community to self-determine their future.
