Thanks for the link! Good read and I would agree with all except for the part when she introduces Thatcher as the one to turn the tide so to speak. Margaret Thatcher was groomed by a conservative think tank to take over the reins of power in the UK. It is not at all clear that once she achieved that goal that she became her own person: "Lady Thatcher is great theatre as long as someone else is writing her lines; she hasn’t got a clue," said her so-called 'guru' Alfred Sherman.
