David Williamson, Wales On Sunday, Thatcher Multi-Election Winning from '79 to '90? What A Load Of Cobblers!

David Williamson writes in Wales on Sunday: "From May 1979 to November 1990, Mrs Thatcher led a multi-election-winning Conservative administration which divided Britain between those who considered the first female Prime Minister a crusading hero and others who believed she was the enemy of the vulnerable."

Rubbish! Mrs T was not multi-election-winning from 1979 onwards. In fact she didn't win her second election until 1983 and her third until 1987. Sorry to be pedantic, but the Wales On Sunday article is a piece of very bad - and potentially highly misleading - writing! Once again, defining events of the 1980s seem to have slipped down the back of the sofa! And surely Thatcher was only the UK's first female Prime Minister, not simply "the first"?
