The Real Legacy of Margaret Thatcher, Britain's Iron Lady




Heritage Foundation
Like President Ronald Reagan, her political soulmate, Margaret Thatcher came to power at a desperate time in her country's history, when real leadership and bold ideas were most needed. And by applying conservative principles to the challenges she faced, she was able to achieve real and lasting success. Then, as today, she faced an extraordinary set of challenges and a chorus of voices saying her country's best days were behind it.

Thatcher's successes are a comforting reminder of the power of a bold, conservative vision at work.
