Diary spills beans on Margaret Thatcher

This is a fascinating look by a high official writing about his prime minister.  Your editor has attributed part of the fall of the first American republic to Thatcher's role as Ronald Reagan' brain. 

Daily Mail, UK - Margaret Thatcher wanted to ‘push’ Vietnamese boat people into the sea, ‘loathed’ Germans, and believed South Africa should become a whites-only state.

She disliked men with moustaches because they ‘looked like hairdressers’ – and may have quit as Prime Minister because of husband Denis’s heavy drinking.

That is the controversial portrait painted of her in a new book by Sir Patrick Wright, who was head of the Diplomatic Service at the end of Thatcher’s Downing Street years and at the start of John Major’s term in office.
