Reagan had once been a strong union man and was proud that as president of the Screen Actors Guild he had led the union during its first strike in 1952.

The next day, Michael Heseltine challenged Thatcher for the leadership of the Conservative Party. Although Thatcher won the first ballot, Heseltine attracted sufficient support to force a second. Thatcher – who in a final act of hubris did not return from a conference in Paris to campaign - initially stated that she intended to “fight on and fight to win,” but her Cabinet persuaded her to withdraw.
