  • Blog: Was Politics more interesting in Thatcher’s time, or was it just me? » Inside Ireland
    s speech that helped trigger the resignation was remarkable even for a 13 year old I didn t get all the cricket metaphors he used and didn t understand all the context I knew it was something to do with Europe But even I knew the import of the speech I have to say for sheer drama that for me as a young teenager beat an episode of Glenroe any day Tarzan jumps on the vine Then Michael Heseltine known as Tarzan announced he would run against Margaret Thatcher I didn t know this at the time but to win the contest in the first round a candidate needed to do better than just winning the support of an absolute majority of Conservative members of the House of Commons In this case she needed also to have a margin of victory over the runner up of 15 per cent of the total electorate First Ballot I remember listening to BBC Radio 4 that whole week I actually taped the 6 O Clock radio news on Tuesday 20 November 1990 I can still hear presenter James Naughtie fluff his opening line BBC News at 6 O Clock A small black bollot box ballot box has just been opened in the Palace of Westminster I can t remember hearing the result there was no twitter or 24 hour news then For the record here it is First ballot 20 November 1990 Candidate Votes Margaret Thatcher 204 54 8 Michael Heseltine 152 40 9 Abstentions 16 4 3 Majority 52 14 0 Electorate 372 Second Ballot required Again what I didn t really grasp then was that Thatcher fell just short of what was needed Thatcher needed to achieve a lead over Heseltine that comprised at least 15 of the number of all Conservative MPs abstentions and spoilt ballots included In this case Thatcher needed a margin of 56 votes to win outright and thus she came up four votes short I do recall quite clearly watching the BBC Nine O Clock news and seeing Mrs Thatcher being swept out of Fontainebleau steps in Paris where she was at an EC summit I remember her Chief Press Secretary Bernard Ingham pushing poor old John Sergent roughly out of the way as his boss tried to conceal her disappointment and having the ignominy of facing a second ballot I now know that she didn t campaign at all because canvassing was beneath the Iron lady I went to school that Thursday 22nd November 1990 I was in second year Year 9 I think it s called now Physics My teacher went into the technician s area that divides the classrooms He let out a little yelp He came back in announced to the class that Margaret Thatcher had just resigned and went back into the area There was a bemusement around the class I remember thinking how significant the news was but that it wasn t a total surprise for me We went to
