Labour actually co-opted many of her policies and that is a reason the conservatives fell out of favour in the UK. The UK is actually pretty conservative as a country compared to their Euro cousins.
I am not sure where you get that from, but it clearly isn't a reputable source. She had the 2nd lowest approval rating of any prime minister after WW2 in the UK during her reign and her own party kicked her out of office at a time when the party was dead in the polls and she was polling even worse than the party average.

Her approval is high today because she is dead, nobody in England likes to speak ill of the dead.
