  1. From 'Maggie Thatcher, the milk snatcher'
  2. the 'Iron Lady'
  3. Unpopularity and fall from power

In politics, if you want something said, ask a man ; if you want something done, ask a woman, Margaret Thatcher declared in a public interview, after being voted as the head of the Conservative Party in 1975. Well-known as the 'Iron Lady', she was to dominate her time in an imposing way, becoming the Britain's longest-ever-serving Prime Minister with an eleven-and-a-half-year term, apart from Lord Liverpool who served a fifteen-year term (between 1812 and 1827). Back in 1975, Margaret Thatcher became the leader of the Conservative party and four years later, she won the general elections ; she took office in 10 Downing Street after Her Majesty, the Queen appointed her Prime Minister. How did she manage to build up such a political and economic success ? Was it a social one ? We shall first come back on her early life and education ; we shall then know her works as Prime Minister. If her political and economic success is undeniable, we'll have to weigh the pros and the cons of its consequences on the British society and economy.
