Sir Bernard Ingham

(A book in the Margaret Thatcher Interviews series)
A non fiction book by

In 2008, I published the first edition of There Is No Alternative: Why Margaret Thatcher Matters.

have never met Margaret Thatcher. By the time I wrote my book about her, she was already too ill to grant interviews. But I spent countless hours interviewing her colleagues, her friends, her enemies, and ordinary Britons who lived through her time in power. I recorded all of these interviews.

I had to choose which comments were worthy of inclusion in my book about her. It was a difficult decision: So many people had said so many things that seemed to me worthy of note. In the end, much of great interest wound up on the cutting room floor, but only because something had to go.

For those interested in Margaret Thatcher - or indeed, in the way biographers work - the transcripts of these interviews, unedited, may prove illuminating. Other historians may one day find them useful: Perhaps they will notice points that I failed to grasp.

I thus reproduce the interviews in this series, every word of them, from the moment I switched the recorder on to the moment I switched it off.

Sir Bernard Ingham was Margaret Thatcher's press secretary. I discuss him at length in There is No Alternative. Here is what we said to each other.
