Margaret Hilda Thatcher


   Baroness Thatcher, more commonly know as “Iron Lady” due to her unrelenting and uncompromising manner of political leadership and administration died today. Margaret Thatcher served as a Member of Parliament for the Finchley constituency, the Secretary of State for Education and Science, was the first female leader of the Conservative party, and only female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom to date, later to be titled "Baroness" by Queen Elizabeth. Queen Elizabeth and Margaret Thatcher did not always see eye to eye, but the Queen has commented on her today saying, "It was with great sadness that l learned of Lady Thatcher's death. We've lost a great leader, a great prime minister and a great Briton." So right. The world is a little quieter, less colorful and there is hole that will never be filled with this dynamic woman of passion and purpose gone.
