Margaret Thatcher Lecture 2012
On Tuesday 23rd October 2012, former Daily Telegraph and Spectator Editor Charles Moore delivered the second Centre for Policy Studies Margaret Thatcher Lecture, titled ‘The EU v The Nation State: Who’s Winning?’ to a packed audience at Bloomberg LP in the City of London.
Always insightful and with a sharp analysis, Moore (Lady Thatcher’s official biographer), examined the extent to which the European Union had subverted the national interest of the UK in favour of the goal of a federated Europe, and whether the current government had a plan to fight for Britain’s interest in the wake of plans for further integration.
CPS Chairman Lord Saatchi, chairing the event, delivered a warm message to attendees from Lady Thatcher.

“Charles Moore’s biography of Margaret Thatcher promises to be the most important British political book in decades. Tonight, we got a preview of it when Charles delivered the Centre for Policy Studies’ second Margaret Thatcher lecture.”
