As this weekend marks 30 years since the Iron Lady became Prime Minister I thought I would make my latest poll about whether The Conservatives were right to have forced her resignation in 1990?
It is of course impossible to know how things would be today if Mrs Thatcher had of remained in power, and whether or not she could have won an election in 1992. Would we have signed Maastricht with Mrs Thatcher as Prime Minister? Or, if she had of failed in an election bid in 1992, how long would Neil Kinnock have held power? Would Gordon Brown have become Labour Leader sooner?
Would we be in a better position economically, and socially if Mrs Thatcher had of stayed on with or without a 1992 victory? Would we subsequently have had a referendum on EU membership, Maastricht or the EURO? Would we have invaded Iraq in 2003? It is hard to imagine how events may have played out differently.
Please vote using the poll on the right of the blog, but feel free to elaborate further in the comments field of this post.
