About this product
- DescriptionMargaret Thatcher is one of the most iconic politicians of the twentieth century. With the possible exception of Winston Churchill, other Prime Minister has had such an impact on modern British history. Like it or t, her radical social and ecomic policies have made Britain the country it is today. Without Margaret Thatcher there could have been New Labour, Tony Blair and David Cameron. Now Robin Harris, for many years Thatcher's speechwriter, trusted adviser and the draftsman of two volumes of her autobiography, has written the defining book about this indomitable woman. He tells her extraordinary life story, from humble beginnings above her father's grocer's shop in Grantham, her early days as one of the first women in Westminster who became kwn as 'Thatcher milk-snatcher' during her days in the Ministry for Education and then as Prime Minister. We follow her through the 'Winter of Discontent', the tribulations of the miners' strike and the Falklands War. And Harris writes a stunning account of her exit from power and tells of her life after number 10.
- Author BiographyRobin Harris worked for the Conservative Party from 1978, and increasingly closely with Margaret Thatcher herself from 1985, writing her speeches and advising on policy. By the close of her premiership, he was probably the most trusted member of her political team at Downing Street, and he left Number Ten with her. As a member of her personal staff, he then drafted the two volumes of her autobiography and a further book on her behalf. After Margaret Thatcher's retirement from public life, Robin continued to see her regularly as a friend until her death.
