She put the ‘great’ back into Britain

You will, no doubt, receive much correspondence following the death of Margaret Thatcher, and I suspect some of it will be less than complimentary.

Might I respectfully suggest, however, that only those such as myself, who experienced life in this country before she came to power, can offer an objective opinion.

One of the television commentators said it would not be unreasonable to state that she saved the nation. Only one other politician in our lifetime can claim that accolade and, like Winnie, Maggie will be the only other one who will be remembered 100 years from now.

Of course she wasn’t right about everything, but she put the “Great” back into Britain, and her towering achievement is that she did it without much support from her own party. A sad day.
