The BBC reports that former prime minister Baroness Thatcher has died. She was 87 years old.
Her spokesman Lord Bell issued the following statement:
“It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their
mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning.”
Thatcher was Conservative prime minister from 1979 to 1990. She was the first woman to hold the post.
I have always found her strangely fascinating. She was as hard as nails. I look forward to watching the up and coming documentaries about her life and rise to power.
Rest In Peace Margaret Thatcher.
