"We have lost a great leader, a great Prime Minister and a great Briton."
Today, the world lost a mighty woman, a mighty inspiration. Mrs. Thatcher’s ideas have had a profound effect on my own thinking and on the way I choose to live. Her commitment to getting things done and to achieving what she wanted to achieve is astonishing. Her courage is most admirable and her strength through the tough challenges she face throughout her political career is without a doubt, remarkable.
She transformed Britain from the idle, union-controlled, exhausted wasteland of consensus politics into the prosperous, vigorous, dominant, strong nation it had been throughout its history. She motivated a generation of ordinary people - of which she was one - to pursue their own aspirations and to be able to achieve them. She liberated this country from the left-wing ruin it was in the 1970s, and she will be remembered forever for her radical ideas and her commitment to her job.
God bless you, Margaret Thatcher.
