Int 2 Folio -Writing about Margaret Thatcher Watch

Badges: 0
Report Thread starter 5 years ago
I had originally planned to write a discursive essay on the economic policies of Margaret Thatcher but my English teacher said it was a rather boring stance. She advised me to go down the argumentative route and argue for Thatcher (which personally I haven't got a problem with, I quite admire Margaret Thatcher myself). However, I am fairly certain this favourable opinion is held by the minority in Scotland.

Do you think the political stance of my marker will impact my final mark for the essay? Everyone has strong opinions on Margaret Thatcher, and I can totally see someone trying to fault my every move if I argue that she changed the UK for the better (by the same token, I can see a Thatcherite fuming because I do not practically eulogise her).
