Margaret Thatcher used to ask of her colleagues, "Is he one of us?" She separated people into two categories: those with her or those against her. Over time she reshaped her cabinet, and even the civil servants working for her, to ensure that she was only surrounded by people she considered 'sound'.

Thatcher was certain of her mission and certain of her ideology. And whether you like it or not, it is undeniable that she delivered remarkable change to British society as a result.
