"Margaret Thatcher would never have put up with the treatment meted out to the UK by the EU over the last year – and would have pulled the plug on the Brexit withdrawal agreement long ago, former Tory minister Ann Widdecombe has said. Miss Widdecombe, who served as a Brexit Party MEP alongside Nigel Farage after being elected to the European Parliament last year, fears current PM Boris Johnson's refusal to walk away from negotiations once and for all will see the UK saddled with what she calls a "lousy deal". However, she said it would not have been the case had Mrs Thatcher, who led the UK from 1979 to 1990, still been in charge. Miss Widdecombe, who served as minister of state for Employment and also minister of state for Prisons under Mrs Thatcher's successor, John Major, said: "I think that when the first deadline expired for a proper deal she would have said that's it."
