The day Margaret Thatcher fell

The day Margaret Thatcher fell

By The Telegraph

The Telegraph’s Assistant Editor Philip Johnston was in Paris when Margaret Thatcher's power started to slip. 

It was the beginning of the end of the Iron Lady’s reign - and it played out in a cobbled courtyard in the French capital. Philip takes us to the Paris summit where world leaders debated a new world order after the Cold War, as votes to oust the Prime Minister were counted back in Westminster. 

Watch Philip talk about that day in a video version of this podcast: |
