Where there is Discord

Scenes from the Thatcher years

By John Minnion

"Where there is discord, may we bring harmony": Mrs Thatcher's very first pledge on becoming Prime Minister in 1979, before she set about dividing the society she didn't even believe in.

John Minnion spent the Thatcher decade as a political illustrator for New Statesman and similar publications. This collection of his caricatures and cartoons is a reminder of the dramatic, black-and-white nature of the Thatcher regime, the intensely personal stamp she put on 1980s Britain, and the long shadow cast by her ideas and actions.
