Margaret Thatcher is Dead

http://www.cnn.com/2013/04/08/world/...html?hpt=hp_t1

London (CNN) -- Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, a towering figure in post-war British and world politics, and the first woman to become British prime minister, has died at the age of 87, her spokeswoman said Monday.

Thatcher served from 1979 to 1990 as leader of the Conservative Party. She was called the "Iron Lady" for her personal and political toughness.
Thatcher retired from public life after a stroke in 2002 and suffered several strokes after that.

Re: Margaret Thatcher is Dead

Vile woman, vile policies.

I don't take pleasure in the death of an old, broken-down woman, but if there is a Hell, then I hope there's a particularly nasty spot down there reserved for her.

Re: Margaret Thatcher is Dead

The well-born FDR was derisively called "a traitor to his class" by the wealthy of his time in the US. Mrs. Thatcher, "the grocer's daughter", was also a traitor to her class; just that it was in the opposite direction.

Re: Margaret Thatcher is Dead

I thought she was a bad Prime Minister who did plenty of harm to Britain. But her decline in health was grim and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

RIP Maggie Thatcher . I might not agree with many of her policies, but there is much I admire about her.

Re: Margaret Thatcher is Dead

Whatever imperfections she may have had, she had the courage to stand up to Soviet Communism in an age when the "smart" people thought appeasement was the right idea, and was far less vile than somebody like Hugo Chavez.

Re: Margaret Thatcher is Dead

I can't help but admire someone that had that much force of will and determination. Having said that I didn't live through those years and things tend to look different in hindsight.

I've never really followed her personal struggles with health hence I didn't know she was already failing in health. I guess it was just shocking to me that a major political figure has left this world. The same way as how I never expected Ebert's passing as well
