RIP Brit PM Maggie: conservative hero, courageous leader

Conservative ideas, principles and policies WORK. 
Ronnie and Maggie, allies and friends

From DailyMail UK:

"Prime Minister David Cameron said she had a 'lion-hearted love of this country' and 'fought for Britain's interests all the way'.

'We've lost a great leader, a great Prime Minister and a great Briton', he said. 'There were people who said she couldn’t make it, who stood in her way, who said that a woman couldn’t lead, and she defied them all.

‘Margaret Thatcher took a country that was on its knees and made Britain stand tall again. She was the patriot prime minister. When people said Britain could not be great again, she proved them wrong.

'She didn't just lead our country, she saved our country, and I believe she'll go down as the greatest British peacetime prime minister.

'Her legacy will be the fact she served her country so well, she saved our country and that she showed immense courage in doing so.

'And people will be learning about what she did and her achievements in decades, probably centuries to come. That's her legacy but today we must also think of her family.'
