University 18 Yrs + | Thatcherism

Mrs Thatcher showed no interest in Constitutional Reform. 

The Westminster Model by which the winning party in the general election controls the Executive and is able to carry out its policies unhindered was one that she held. 

Power became more centralised with local authorities increasingly regulated by central government and no concessions were made to demands for devolution in Scotland and Wales despite a serious impact on the Conservative vote in Scotland. 

Government also sought to reduce the influence of intermediate institutions, such as the professions, interest groups and trade unions, and there were high profile rows with the BBC and the Church of England.
