Lady Thatcher dies


Vital Football Legend
Former Prime Minister Baroness Thatcher has died at 87 following a stroke, her spokesman has said.

Lord Bell said: "It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning."

Baroness Thatcher was Conservative prime minister from 1979 to 1990.

She was the first woman to hold the post. Her family is expected to make a further statement later.

I can't think of a more divisive public figure. They have just announced there is going to be a state funeral which I strongly disagree with.

If someone like her was in charge now, there wouldn't be people on the dole receiving more money than I earn for working my knackers off.

she was a great PM but made some mistakes which is what everyone remembers unfortunately

That's probably the best description.

10 years of good, strong, sensible leadership, and half a dozen mistakes.

Some people tend to remember the mistakes.

A lady driven by deeply held principles and a sense of duty to her country. Whether or not you agreed with her policies she wasn't self-serving like the current bunch of do-anything/say-anything no hopers.

I didn't agree with all that she did but you knew were never in doubt about what the Government stood for!

Brought the country out of the grip of the Unions, which was a great thing. As with all long serving politicians she got a lot wrong, and I like many suffered with her policies, but overall she made some correct and important decisions.
