RIP Lady Thatcher, I didn't agree with all you did but with the Falklands and the Iranian Embassy you showed the world Gt Britain was still a force to be reckoned with. A true leader and like Winston a hard act to follow.

Please keep Politics off the forum as set out in the Forum Rules. I've had to delete & edit a few threads today all ready.

Without touching on politics it would all depend on where you were living if you thought RIP or something else. I'm pretty much ambivalent to her passing but I do feel for the family.

I can remember her as a Prime Minister, I remember the miners strike, I remember the Falklands and I remember watching the Iranian Embassy. I don't however really remember much else but as I've grown up I realised what a very strong woman she must have been, even today its hard for women to climb to the top in almost any business let alone to the heights she achieved in them days!! May she Rest In Peace now.
