In the case of Margaret Thatcher’s missing son, covered in season 4, it really did. In his mid-twenties, Mark Thatcher launched a career as a race car driver and competed in the 1980 Le Mans. According to The Guardian, a “strained and anxious” Margaret Thatcher began crying when someone inquired about her son before a luncheon; and President Ronald Reagan even phoned her on January 14 to offer moral support. “The Algerians had a well-organized, well-structured plan,” Thatcher wrote. After conferring with her political advisors, Margaret Thatcher decided to settle the bill with personal funds.
