Margaret Thatcher voted worst PM in the last 100 years
Margaret Thatcher has been voted the worst Prime Minister of the last hundred years by a panel of history writers.
Baroness Thatcher, who is reviled by many on Merseyside, was given the thumbs-down from 11 of the 45 authors who took part in a survey by the Historical Writers Association.
The organisation’s former chair Manda Scott condemned Thatcher for “neo-liberalism, deindustrialisation, free market ideology, Scottish poll tax, selling council houses and failing to act on the early stages of global warming.”
