Death of a legend. Margaret Thatcher
We have witnessed today the passing of one of the greatest peacetime leaders of our nation. The first woman Prime Minister of Britain, the Iron Lady that had the deepest respect from every major leader in the world. A politician of principle, with the courage to stand up to bullies, be they Union bosses or nations like Argentina.
She was loved and loathed, but never be ignored. The formidable, the powerful, the reformer the energetic and charismatic Margaret Thatcher. I am very proud to be part of the party that gave her the opportunity to serve as Prime Minister.
