This history-lite is fine if you don’t take it too seriously...it misses out a lot, like her husband paying for her political career, the influence of Keith Joseph, and how narrow - if decisive - her victory in 1979 was. Fine if you want to support the fictionalised The Crown, but not the whole story..

Wow, the first female Prime Minister....not exactly a good debut....same outlook as your typical wife-beater. Might makes right. Also, she wasn't the first female leader of a Western country....don't have to travel very far to reference Elizabeth 1, who was actually a stellar leader....but that doesn't fit your moronic post-modern feminist narrative. I have had sneezes with more cognitive content than this crap.

This series is about the queens life, not Margaret Thatcher - it wouldn't really make sense to include parts of her life that wasn't in the lime light of the public. But there is a scene that shows a younger Thatcher at University but I would agree that they could've made parts of her rise to leader of the opposition as her appearance in this series was set from 1979 when it could've been from 1975.

If Thatcher loathed privilege and idleness why did she give tax cuts to unearned income. If she admired thrift and resourcefulness why did she attack and starve the working poor whose resourcefulness created the nations wealth and enabled them to survive the previous depression and WWII. Her willingness to adhere to strong religious ideals groomed her to cling to ideology. The ideology was provided by the Austrian/ Chicago School of Economics which are centers of neoliberalism which grew from the Mont Pelerin Society established in 1947 to push back the advances of social democracy. Thatcherism, Reganism, was a corporate sponsored global movement funded by old money to reinstate the old order where government took a back seat while handing the reigns over to untaxed unaccountable free enterprise. We now live with the results. Urban,sprawl and decay, environmental collapse, unending illegal wars, polluting and exploiting industries controlling the levers of power. The lack of compassion, empathy and foresight was not a result of a Christian upbringing. Beating the drums of war during Falkland conflict and attacking the countries most vulnerable to hang onto power has no any ethical basis. Thatcher was a pawn star. A pawn of the establishment starring in the lead role where she was crafted as a carefully scripted character.

Thatcher sounds terrible. I’m young and American and all we learned about her in school was that she was the first female prime minister, and that she was like the British, female Ronald Reagan. This video and the crown didn’t paint a prettier picture. By the end of the season, what was most disturbing to me was the length of her reign and her refusal to adapt. Not sure if that’s totally accurate, but she was called the Iron Lady. That length of reign and that attitude reeks more like a despot. Also, using wars to hold onto power, glory, and imperialism makes my blood boil. I think it would’ve made sense if she served one regular term, and then was voted out for making the lives of many of her citizens worse, and for not understanding the mechanisms that keep the poor poor. Lastly, I’m guessing they overdid this in the show, but it sorta seems like she completely failed to recognize her obvious privilege (white, secure nuclear family, inspiring hard working father, her immediate family didn’t get disrupted by WW2, some natural smarts, no major physical maladies, and the fact that I doubt she could’ve done all she did today without some more cash. And our today is very much shaped by reagan and thatcher, unfortunately).

"The Crown" is a work of fiction based loosely on real events and people. Nearly all the events and people depicted are done so crudely and exaggerated for dramatic effect. This little puff piece is here to entice you to watch the series, so won't contradict it greatly.

To me, Thatcher was the best Prime Minister the Uk ever had. What you were taught about Thatcher was right. She and Regan were very much alike. They were even friends. The fact that she was PM for about 11 years just goes to show that she was a popular PM, despite having waves of unpopularity. If the British people wanted her out, then the Tories (short for the Conservatives party) would have done so a lot quicker than wait 11 whole years to do it. You don't know this about the Tories but, if they want to remove their leader, they'll do it no matter what. You only say she was a despot, despite not actually knowing a lot of her policies, I'm willing to bet. Thatcher had to bring the UK out of crippling debt due to a few reasons: one of them was partly to do with the financial aftermath of WW2, the other would be because of the Labour governments nationalising everything and giving more power to the Trade Unions. The power the Union had was so much that it caused the WInter of Discontent, that led Thatcher in the first place to win the 1979 General election, beating out James Callaghan (Labour PM at the time, your version of the Democrats). Thatcher curbing the Union's power was because of the public hating them so much. If anything, the Winter of discontent harmed the Uk more than Thatcher did. She wasn't a despot or despot adjacent. If she was, then the show would have been ousted immediately. In the UK, we have measures in place to remove PMs. It's called a "no-confidence motion", Basically, if the House of Commons loses confidence in the government, then the PM must call a general election so that a new government can be formed. I'm gonna assume you don't know the reason why the UK went to war with the Falklands. Long story short, Argentia invaded British land (The Falkland Islands), the UK responded. If someone just decided to one day try and take over a state, I doubt anyone in America would be too thrilled about that. Thatcher also wants an imperialist. She actually did a lot to help the poor, like her housing policy: she basically allowed for families to buy the council houses they were renting. This policy helped a lot of people get on the property ladder, and help them be more successful. Thatcher was also fine with having poor people and a divided society economically, so long as the standards, and what you get even when you're poor are better than what it could've been if you were poor in the 1950s. this is something I personally agree with. Finally, I think you overestimate Thatcher's situation. For all intents and purpose, she wasn't supposed to be PM. she wasn't even supposed to be the leader of the Tories/ leader of the opposition (basically a government in waiting for if the real government loses an election/ the current PM resigns to force an election. In the instance of the latter, the leader of the opposition would have 14 days to make a new government). when she was voted party leader, most of the party didn't like the fact that a woman was in charge of them. She also quite clearly worked hard to get where she got to. her father was also a greengrocer, which was not a high paying job. I've left a lot of information out and condemned what I did write about, but hopefully, this was informative. We probably have different ideas to how the Uk and the USA should be run, since you don't like Thacher or Regan, and I love them both,

Everyone forgets to mention that unemployment later fell, overweening union power was smashed, uncompetitive nationalised industries were privatised and made profitable again by private investment rather than public funds, and Thatcher was so popular she won 3 elections with huge majorities.

I always find it interesting when a self made politician that came from a low class treats the lower class when they get into power. Thatcher and her policies reminds me of Alexander Hamilton and his policies, which largely gave power to the rich and made them richer at the expense of the lower class, where he came from. Are they trying to prove themselves by hurting the poor and helping the rich? I am not ripping on Thatcher and Hamilton, I’m just pointing out an observation.

Britain in the 70s was on the slide into economic oblivion after years of socialism had created a lazy entitled population used to government hand outs and labour union dictatorship. She was hated because she was both a woman and a conservative, but she put down the foundation that made the UK the economic power it is today and made London the economic and financial centre of Europe.

Thatcher: My goal is to change this country from being dependent to self reliant. Results: made it less dependent and more reliant on funny money and the games of finance, gutted much of the UK's industrial capacity, as like in the US under trickle down Reagan-nomics, rendered half the population poor or low income, the next 30% just squeaking by as we re-introduced robber baron 2.0 on steroids. We see the same thing that occurred all through the 1800's and into the 1920's with fascism on the rise. With wack-a-doodle leaders of nations being elected. The world figuratively and literally burns. Because of people like Thatcher and Reagan under the Ayn Rand philosophy greed as defined as willing to do harm to get more of something is somehow a positive virtue. When you make harm a virtue, murder and rape and pillage become thus too. As we can see... it leaves the world in shatters. Keep in mind we now have nuclear weapons. We simply cannot afford another world war. But these people brought us to that possible eventuality. And the demise of our advancing technological civilizations, at the very least a dark age that may last more than a thousand years. This is their legacy. And we should never forget it.
