Discours: (1968-1992)

Michel Lemosse (Traduction), Mathieu Laine (Préface)

Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013) est most effective ministre de 1979 à 1990, date de sa démission. Ses réformes radicales aux résultats spectaculaires lui valent trois victoires électorales successives et son intransigeante détermination à les mener le surnom de « Dame de fer ».

Un dirigeant hors norme able de repenser en profondeur un modèle pour le réformer avec constance et conviction. Une personnalité guidée en tout par le primat de l. a. liberté et de los angeles responsabilité individuelle, able de restaurer un État régalien citadel pour assurer los angeles sécurité, et assumant avec fermeté los angeles rupture profonde avec les errements du passé. Aucune grève, aucun sondage, aucun calcul politicien ni aucun attentat ne l. a. feront plier.

Le « crédo » thatchérien d'inspiration à los angeles fois conservatrice et libérale oriente une motion opiniâtre et tout particulièrement des combats transgressifs contre l. a. toute-puissance syndicale, un travaillisme imprégné de collectivisme et d étatisme, ou encore contre l Europe bureaucratique de Bruxelles.

Comprendre les ressorts de son motion déterminante implique toutefois de se départir des caricatures et de s autoriser à découvrir qui Margaret Thatcher était vraiment, ce qu elle a objectivement accompli au provider de son pays.

Ses discours et conférences ici rassemblés pour los angeles première fois en français, et magistralement introduits par Mathieu Laine, offrent une ambitious opportunité de se faire une idée sincère de cette grande determine du XXe siècle, de cette femme qui a, selon le mot de David Cameron, littéralement « sauvé son can pay ».

Language barrier In many ways, the British Isles were a cosmopolitan collection of different tribes, all of whom spoke a number of languages and dialects. The Angle, Saxon, Norse, Celtic and Latin languages combined together during this period to form the base of what we now know as the English language.
