thatchers legacy

Last night I popped over to Wolverhampton to see a performance of Thatcher - the musical.
It was a great performance from a small company. The musical essentially romps through her early years, standing for parliament, milk snatching, and then slows down from '79 and her premiership years. (Falklands, miners, "defeat" of socialism). And then the final acts of betrayal by Howe and her cabinet.
The chap sat behind me continually muttered whenever there was mention of socialism, while there were others in the audience who were quite open about their support for Labour (and the Liberals). There were also many in the audience who probably weren't born when she left office, and definitely many who would never have had a chance to vote against her (my first vote was in 1992).
