June 1983

Thatcher unfettered after a landslide post-Falklands election, business problems bubbling, national BMMG responsibilities burgeoning and ducklings growing as I manage to spend some quality time with the family on The Lady

This first month’s journal started on June 11th after Margaret Thatcher post-Falklands landslide victory who then continued her custom running roughshod over past political friends and opponents alike with even talk of a majority for the death penalty. She is dishing out hereditary peerages which had all been considered a thing of the past but this Prime Minister will not agree to the customary request of the Leader of the Opposition to approve 20+ Labour peers in the dissolution Honours List even though the election result has left many active and senior politicians without a role to play.
