Abstract

The question of how Margaret Thatcher would have voted in the forthcoming EU referendum has exercised a number of Conservative politicians. Her former adviser, Lord Powell, has argued that she was a pragmatist who would have at least considered supporting the Remain side. David Shiels says the ex-PM was always a Eurosceptic whose views hardened during her premiership. Had she stayed in office longer, we might well already have left the EU.
