It is always sad when someone we think we know dies.
Is it right to mourn such a controversail figure?
Do you think she furthered the place for women in government?
Love her or hate her what was her impact upon Britain in your opinion?

I dread to think what the country would now be like if she had not been the Prime Minister at such a difficult time. I cannot think of any other woman who could lead like her or stick to her principles love them or hate them she did what it said on the tin......

Of course she had her problems and I think that she got into something with Scargill who would not give up. He refused to take a ballot to his men and so it was the miners themselves who suffered.
