We mourned the loss of a great conservative this year with the passing of Margaret Thatcher. Her legacy is brilliantly explained in this documentary, Margaret Thatcher, Death of a Revolutionary from Britain's Channel 4 TV. Thatcher was that rarity in a politician - a leader of conviction who had a coherent ideology and stuck to it. All conservatives should watch this, especially those lining up behind Michael Chong's Democratic Reform Bill. Thatcher was of course unceremonially removed from office, "thrown out by her own toffs", under the exact party leadership system that the bill is proposing. One of the greatest Prime Ministers in British history was unseated by a handful of bitter backbench MPs who didn't like her style and replaced by nonentity John Major. Canadian conservatives should pay attention.
