Apartheid was one of the most contentious issues facing the British government in the 1980s, and Mrs Thatcher became notorious for her hostility to sanctions and the ANC . Recently published documents reveal a more complex story, but do they vindicate the claim that, far from being a friend of apartheid, she did more than anyone to bring it to an end?
