(Thatcher 1987) Three months after Margaret Thatcher was elected as prime minister for her third term ( June 1987) she gave an interview to Woman’s Own magazine in which she condemned those “children and people” who expected the government, as the representative of “society,” to sort their problems out.

Our focus is on those aspects of “society” most decried by Margaret Thatcher, the public services. In particular we consider those two institutions, often described as quintessentially British, the National Health Service (NHS) and public service broadcasting, both of which came under intense pressure from the Thatcher governments (Leys 2001). ” In dealing with those problems, public life is lived out in a particularly powerful way, and the vulnerability and interdependence of individuals becomes an unavoidable issue.
