Iron Lady Margaret Thatcher is dead

08 Apr

Baroness Thatcher 1925 – 2013

Britain’s former Prime Minster Margret Thatcher has peacefully passed away this morning following a stroke according to her spokesperson.

She had been in bad shape of recently and was once admitted in hospital before suffering a stroke today and could not recover.

Thatcher, 87 was the first woman ever to become Prime Minister in 1979 under the Conservative party.

In power for 11 years, Thatcher divided public opinion in the UK as well as the world over, especially when Britain occupied the Falkland peninsula which Argentina claim ownership till date.

When Britain won the war, her popularity and governance become renowned. Often described as the Iron Lady, Thatcher brought in lots of changes to the British political system.

Although she won three conservative elections to stay in power, she was finally forced to resign in 1990 – an ending which she revealed later was regrettable since it wasn’t by an election or of her will, but that of political pressure from the party.

    by the way I dont know if I mentioned this to you, it was on your blog when I visited the very first time that I learned of Margaret Thatcher’s death. My tv is usually off or on mute, I had seen passing images but did not understand they were announcing her death. Thanks for being my newsbreaker
