It's not yet the twenty five years that most historians say is the minimum amount of time to assess the impact of something, but I was reading her speech from the 1980 Tory conference (in The Guardian's excellent series of the 14 greatest speeches of the Twentieth Century) and it made think about her legacy. I still think she was a spiteful, callous bitch, but I now think many things she did were right: reducing the power of the unions, encouraging home ownership, tackling inflation, privatising some of the national industries. However, I also think she may have fucked us in the process. Her extreme policies made us expect low taxation and she nearly destroyed health and education with her chronic spending cuts. She also pushed us towards our debt obsessed economy and is arguable responsible for the political apathy that pervades our country now as Blair felt he couldn't go so radically in the other direction after her, and so just fannied around blandly making people think he was neither one thing nor another and failing to really address the issues people wanted addressing. So, where do you stand on her?
