margaret thatcher legacy
Thatcher's personal impact on British politics is immense. She didn't just fight her ideological corner, she transformed her enemies. Granted, the children of Thatcher may not like what she did or how she did it, but it is not a requirement to like one's parents.
Geoffrey Howe, the former Tory minister whose resignation speech is credited for hastening the downfall of Margaret Thatcher
Thatcher's legacy is potent and ironically it has the potential to win the Conservatives the next election. At this point Labour has very nearly left it too late to convince the public of a clear direction. The Conservatives can retro-fit her legacy to give their current policies some meaning and identity.
