Margaret Thatcher, Iron Lady, dead at 87

LONDON (AP) - Love her or loathe her, one thing’s beyond dispute: Margaret Thatcher transformed Britain. The Iron Lady who ruled for 11 remarkable years imposed her will on a fractious, rundown nation - breaking the unions, triumphing in a far-off war, and selling off state industries at a record pace. She left behind a leaner government and more prosperous nation by the time a mutiny ousted her from No. 10 Downing Street.

Thatcher’s former spokesman, Tim Bell, said that the former prime minister had died this morning of a stroke. She was 87.

She transformed Britain for the better. Mrs Thatcher was a true "statesman" and should be classed with Churchill.

"She left behind a leaner government and more prosperous nation..." A fitting epitath.

Too bad we don't have any Margaret Thatcher types, male or female in this country.
