"Mrs. Thatcher was the first woman to become prime minister of
Britain and the first to lead a major Western power in modern times.
Hard-driving and hardheaded, she led her Conservative Party
to three straight election victories and held office for 11 years
— May 1979 to November 1990 — longer than any
other British politician in the 20th century."

I had the privilege of meeting Lady Thatcher in London in the summer of 2010 and wrote about it briefly. Thank you, Maggie, for making the world a better place. What the world needs now is more Thatcherism, not less. Please watch this: Thatcher's Last Stand Against Socialism.
