I am actually quite neutral on her. Did quite a few FF things and quite a few HP things.

Horrible.

Too bad the British didn't lose the Falklands War as doing so would've kept Tory popularity at record lows. With Foot's Labour just as bad off, there was the potential there for Roy Jenkins to become Prime Minister.

Major FF, though the poll tax was a bad idea and the European policy switch should've been done slower and with more intraparty consultation. Also a major political idol of mine.

NHS, Inc: The Accelerating Marketization of the UK’s National Health Service

Quote
Multinational Monitor: What has been the historic mission of the UK’s National Health Service (NHS)?

Allyson Pollock: The NHS provides service to all citizens free at point of delivery, and made available on the basis of need and not on the ability to pay.

Prior to the creation of the NHS in 1948, half of the population in the UK, including children and older people, had no real access to healthcare — unless of course they could afford to pay for it — and as a result coverage and access was badly distributed.

Quote
MM: When did the process of privatization and marketization begin?

Pollock: Prior to 1979, the consensus around state-provided healthcare largely held the main problem was lack of funding. The real privatization thrust began in 1979, when Thatcher’s government came in to power.

And the NHS isn't being 'marketized' anywhere near enough, unfortunately (in reply to greenforest).

It's worth noting that Thatcher was only really the public face of her ideology; the real thinkers behind it were people such as Keith Joseph and John Gouriet. Not to say that Thatcher wasn't intelligent of course, but she was more of a career politician than anything else.

Top twenty would be stretching it, but perhaps we can get her into the top fifty. If only to annoy her more devoted fanboys.
