Where There Is Discord
Margaret Thatcher seems to have taken it as read that powerful men would have sex with children.
Her father did not give her away at her wedding, he did not attend her swearing in as an MP, and when he died her mother did not even have an up-to-date telephone number for her. She almost never went back to Grantham.
He was also a notorious toucher up of his shop girls. The mistresses at his daughters' school used to find it terribly difficult, in that more delicate age, to explain to the senior girls why they were not to take Saturday jobs at his establishment.
Further speculation would be the height or depth of bad taste.
