Description


Journalist Robert Philpot explores the relationship between Margaret Thatcher and Britain's Jewish community, demonstrating that her regard did not come simply from representing a constituency with more Jewish voters than any other, but one that stretched back to her childhood. She saw her own philosophical beliefs expressed in the values of Judaism, seeing elements reflected in the Methodist teachings of her beloved father.
