Acclaimed author of Margaret Thatcher's autobiography visits Lancing College

Bright World Partners, Lancing College welcome former Daily Telegraph editor and author of acclaimed autobiography of Margaret Thatcher, Charles Moore. 

Bright World Partner School, Lancing College recently welcomed Charles Moore, former editor of the Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph and The Spectator, and latterly Margaret Thatcher’s official biographer, the first volume of which has been met with universal acclaim, to speak at the prestigious Evelyn Waugh Lecture.

In a fascinating talk attended by a packed audience of pupils, parents, OLs and staff, Mr Moore talked about the challenges of writing a biography of the most iconic political leader since Churchill. Commenting on the dearth of personal information (something he saw as essential in his biography) Mr Moore asked Mrs Thatcher why so little was available, to which she replied “I just didn’t think I was going to be important”.
