Charles Moore: Thatcher and the EU

ieaTV caught up with Margaret Thatcher’s authorised biographer Charles Moore to discuss the former Prime Minister’s changing attitude towards the European Union. In this video, Moore describes how Margaret Thatcher was initially in favour of the European Community as a block against the Soviet Union and for the furtherance of free trade, but yet was sceptical of the overall project. She became more disillusioned following the Single European Act and the steps taken towards monetary union.
