Baroness Thatcher has died

This is a sad day. Mrs Thatcher took the hard decisions that had to be taken after the economic chaos of the 1970s. She changed Britain immeasurably for the better. An Eighties that otherwise would have resembled the Seventies is a nightmare that doesn’t bear thinking about. Her commitment to freedom and her personal example of hard work and achievement were inspirational. Even the Left can’t deny that she was a woman of conviction who changed the political weather. Sometimes, you need leaders who don’t compromise. And in 1979, Britain needed her.
