Thatcherballs No 4 – Norman Fowler


Norman Fowler, Baron Fowler is a British Conservative politician who was from 1981 to 1990 a member of Margaret Thatcher’s Cabinet.

He recently said that the UK was faced by “one of the biggest scandals affecting the press in living memory”

As Secretary of State for Health and Social Security in 1986, Fowler implemented the first official drive to educate the British public to the dangers of AIDS.

In 1990, Norman Fowler quit the Tory cabinet to ‘spend more time with his family’.

Next week: Edwina Currie “I just looked at my orange juice, and looked at this man from which this stream of abuse was emanating, and thought ‘I know how to shut you up.”
