Lord Kinnock on challenging Margaret Thatcher

Former Labour leader Lord Kinnock offers an insight into the challenge he had as leader of the opposition when Margaret Thatcher was prime minister, in an interview with BBC Parliament.

"If I misjudged it with Margaret Thatcher and even managed to land a blow, the consequences would not be full credit", he said.
