In Memoriam. Margaret Thatcher, 1925–2013

Margaret Thatcher (1925 – 8 April 2013) Thatcher was the first — and still only — female prime minister in Britain's history.  She rescued Britain from ruin & laid the groundwork for an extraordinary economic renaissance, during her 11 year term.  Known as the "Iron Lady", a nickname that became associated with her uncompromising politics & leadership style, she simply would not allow Britain to be pushed around, particularly by military dictators.
