Guardian headline for Hugo Young's piece on Thatcher:
Margaret Thatcher left a dark legacy that has still not disappeared
Actual conclusion of that piece:

Britain was battered out of the somnolent conservatism, across a wide front of economic policies and priorities, that had held back progress and, arguably, prosperity. This is what we mean by the Thatcher revolution, imposing on Britain, for better or for worse, some of the liberalisation that the major continental economies know, 20 years later, they still need. I think on balance, it was for the better, and so, plainly did Thatcher's chief successor, Tony Blair.
