On May 4th 1979 Margaret Thatcher became the first woman prime minister of the UK (30 years ago) To mark the 30th anniversary of this event; I have put together these two clips from the BBC election night all those years ago. We have the election result at Margaret Thatchers seat of Finchley, plus a spoof speech from Margaret by the comedian/impersonator Janet Brown.
Just for the record, I do not support what Margaret Thatcher did to the moral fabric of this country or agreed with many of her domestic policies at the time. I have put this up purely as a matter of interest in an historical moment of UK politics.
