Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

No Turning Back is a group within the British Conservative Party advocating Thatcherite policies. It was founded in 1985 to defend Margaret Thatcher's free-market reforms.[1] The group was named in honour of Thatcher's 1980 Conservative conference quote "You turn if you want to. The lady's not for turning."[2] No Turning Back published less material in the nineties and became involved in Conservative party in-fighting, resulting in both Michael Portillo and Francis Maude leaving the group,[1][2] but became more prominent during Iain Duncan Smith's time as Conservative leader because he had been a member until he was elected.[2]

Since 2005 the No Turning Back group has been chaired by John Redwood. It has published pamphlets on the subjects of taxation and social mobility in recent years.
