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.

Thatcher was a horror for the Catholics in Northern Ireland. She is,directly responsible for the death and torture of many innocent people kept in the secret prison known as the Maze. The British high court finally apologized for the murders and abuses that occurred there. She should have been tried and imprisoned for her role in these murders. May she rot in hell along with Mountbatten!
