Margaret Thatcher RIP

Margaret Thatcher died today. What can one say? Love her or hate her, she certainly played a major role in shaping Britain as we know it today. As a naieve 18 year-old still at school I voted for her in 1979. The country was a mess, Heath was gone, why not a woman PM? Of course she turned out to be stubborn, domineering and - by the end - didn't listen to anyone except her husband. But was she a good thing for Britain? I think the jury's still out on that one.
