** Roughly halfway, Geoffrey Howe warns Maggie that she shouldn't test her collauges loyalty too far.

* RantInducingSlight: After some ministers tell Maggie that she should not go forward with her "Community Charge" because many people believe it's unfair, Thatcher gives a rather malicious ReasonYouSuckSpeech to her ''entire'' cabinet, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking calling them cowards for not wanting to put up a fight and traitors for willing to make comprises with the European Union, and agreeing with French economic theories.]]

* ImaginaryFriend: In the present-day segments, Thatcher is accompanied by the illusory figure of her late husband. JimBroadbent is clearly having the time of his life playing Denis.

* RantInducingSlight/ ReasonYouSuckSpeech: Thatcher gives a rather malicious one to her ''entire'' cabinet, just because they correctly believe that her proposed "Community Charge" is considered unfair by most people and it would be a good idea to drop it, and tell her so to her face.

* CommanderContrarian: Thatcher shoots down ''any'' criticism to her policies from her opponnets and fellow Tories. It eventually backfires after her cabinet just can't take it any more.
