Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s first female prime minister, and a special pal of Ronald Reagan, has passed away today, after a stroke, at the age of 87.
Where did she get that nickname, the Iron Lady? The Russians gave it to her….. and she is said to have liked it.
Baroness Thatcher leaned a bit to the right, particularly on fiscal matters, and on the role of government. From the European point of view, she was a right wing extremist.
Brought up as a Methodist, and later leaning Anglican, Thatcher was not in the same camp as your friendly Pharmer, on the social issues, but this interview, gives a good inside look at her views, both personal and political, on a wide range of topics.
Prayers and respect for a strong lady who, even after her passing, is still driving the lefties crazy.
