One Network News - Paul Holmes Meets Margaret Thatcher

Television (Full Length) – 1993

We still have in our party some amazingly snobby people who come from backgrounds that have governed the Tory party for a thousand years. So when the daughter of a greengrocer became the leader of the party, that is exactly how they treated her. And she was aware of it, and she killed every one of them.

She began to believe her own propaganda. She began to believe that she could walk on water.
– Austin Mitchell
I'm suggesting that (New Zealand) denying access to their ports for ships that were helping to keep the peace, was not right.
– Margaret Thatcher on New Zealand's anti-nuclear policy
Margaret Thatcher was a towering colossus of her time. She transformed her country. She turned it from a country beset by an adverse image of itself, and she made it into a crusading world stage trotter.
– David Lange
