Former Prime Minister Thatcher was in the United States to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom. This is the highest honor the United States president can bestow on a civilian in peace time. Prime Minister Thatcher talked about the British government and the way it operates. She said that when the prime minister’s question time began airing on C-SPAN, she received a great deal of correspondence from Americans who had been unfamiliar with the British governing system. The impact of media on the process was also discussed. Prime Minister Thatcher said the British system of government works very well for them, but that the differences from the United States legislative and administrative processes make the two systems difficult to compare. For example, in the United States, the president is a combination of the prime minister and the monarchy.
