The Falklands proved that the unexpected happens, and this included the reappearance of a fantastic pride of country. I believe that Britain has now found a role. It is in

upholding international law and teaching the nations of the world how to live.

The Soviet State inspired by that barbarous assault on the human spirit called Marxism-Leninism was collapsing under the weight of its own contradictions. He called for a crusade for freedom, an attempt to

establish the infrastructure of democracy and to subvert Soviet tyranny just as the Soviets tried to subvert Western freedom. He invited people to consign Marxism-Leninism to the ash-heap of history.

THE WEEK.CO.UK/POLITICS. 09 APRIL 2013 THE BIG BANG: Financial deregulation was successful. The City Of London became Europes biggest financial center and challenged New York. PRIVATISATION: She sold or privatized more than 50 state-run companies, including power and water industries, raising 50 billion pounds for the Exchequer. EDUCATION REFORM: Introduced a national curriculum, set up school standards and inspections, and devolved management of school budgets to the schools. THE WEEK.CO.UK/POLITICS (CONT) ENDING THE COLD WAR: Working with Ronald Reagan,

and Mikhail Gorbachev, she helped bring change and tear down the Iron Curtain, according to Gorbachev. RIGHT TO BUY SCHEME: More than 1.25 million Britons signed up to buy their council flats, adding 18 billion pounds to the government coffers, but also depleting the stock of social housing. PUSHING LABOUR PARTY TO THE RIGHT: Margaret self-described her greatest achievement thusly: New Labour; which forced the party to drag itself into the modern era. Labour PM Blair (1997-2007) governs from the center. THE WEEK.CO.UK/POLITICS (CONT) THE FALKLANDS WAR: By ignoring her own military

advisors, she prevailed at great risk and victory led directly to her landslide second victory as PM in 1983. SCEPTICISM OF EUROPE: Resisting European vigorously and publically helped lead to her eventual downfall over economic sovereignty issues. THE POLL TAX: The single flat-rate tax on every adult replaced taxation on home value with taxation based on the number of occupants, causing the Trafalgar Riot in 1990. (It was later repealed under John Major, her Tory PM successor prior to Labour PM Blair). QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS?
