Both statements are equally false. Margaret Thatcher was leader of the CONSERVATIVE Party in UK, and not a liberal unless in the sense of "classical liberalism" which is today basically the ideology of conservatism.. And I am way left of liberal.<quoted text>
You don't have to explain any of that to me. And your explanation is flawed. In Europe the terms conservative and liberal are not interchangeable.
This confusion is a result of a semantic theft by leftists who hijacked the term liberal, turning it to mean something that barely resembles the original meaning. And so it is more true to say that Margaret Thatcher was a liberal than it is to say that you are a liberal.
Yes, you do need instruction even in the basics of Western politics, ideas and culture which you so uncritically esteem.
