Margaret Thatcher (1925-2013) est best 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 ».

Une personnalité guidée en tout par le primat de l. a. liberté et de l. a. responsabilité individuelle, able de restaurer un État régalien citadel pour assurer l. a. sécurité, et assumant avec fermeté l. a. rupture profonde avec les errements du passé. Aucune grève, aucun sondage, aucun calcul politicien ni aucun attentat ne l. a. feront plier.
