Margaret Thatcher didn't listen, because to have listened might have diminished her absolute conviction she was right, as well as her determination to change radically the way Britain did business, regardless of the social fall-out. But her inability to listen would be her undoing.

I will never know why she approached me out of all the people in the room. She was powerful, yet willing to ask for help, and she did not ask the most important people present that night, but arguably (and visibly) asked the very least important person.
