Tuesday, 09 April 2013

The legacy of Margaret Thatcher’s tenure in political office will now be discussed at length. Those who will frame this debate though, are often far too concerned with the health of London. To contest this narrow view, we want to hear from you about what life was really like under Thatcher. This will provide a more balanced vision of her legacy. We already have over 50 submissions but we would love more!

We have created a mini blog to tell your stories, which you can view at

Please email us ( with your pictures, short stories, comments and quotes about what life was like under Thatcher’s rule and what you think her legacy is. We will then upload them and share your story. If you are too young to have lived at this time then why not ask your parents, friends or neighbours for their stories.
