Shield committee

Thatcher's victory reflected hard work by the Shield committee, a committee which was revealed in 1993 by Brian Crozier. At the time, few UK voters had heard of the Bilderberg at which she had made such an impression in 1975 before being selected as part leader (although at least one national newspaper had mentioned her attendance at the group).[1]
