Charles Moore: legacy of Thatcherism

ieaTV caught up with Margaret Thatcher’s authorised biographer Charles Moore to discuss the legacy of Thatcherism. In this video, Moore explains how her key legacy from a policy perspective was the export of privatisations around the world. But the style of leadership and the pushing of ‘freedom’ as a political concept were also significant. He explains why he believes Thatcher’s style made her an ideal leader for tough times when significant change was necessary.
