Left

Thatcher dominated my childhood, and changed politics forever when she declared the end of society. The left and the right is still recovering from her legacy.

I grew up hating Thatcher. 

I was thirteen when the Tories came to government in 1979. I was in my thirties by the time they were voted out. By then I was back in New Zealand.

Thatcher was the only leader I’d ever known.

Here's a radical idea for politicians hoping to make an impact: tell the truth instead of offering false hope, like France's Manuel Valls.

The most popular politician in France is Manuel Valls, the interior minister in Francois Hollande’s Socialist government.
