Margaret Thatcher supported Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet, yes. What she did not do was use his tactics. Throughout Thatcher’s reign Britain remained a democracy. Labor party leaders Michael Foot and Neil Kinnock were not dropped from helicopters into the Atlantic ocean. Guardian journalists were not rounded-up and shot. In fact, at least one of them, Polly Toynbee, left the Labor party to join the collaborationist Social Democratic Party, significantly damaging Labor’s chances of unseating Thatcher in the 1983 election.
