R.I.P Iron Lady

Margaret Thatcher died today at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke.

Can't say that I was a Thatcherite or that I agreed with all of her politics but she was a woman in a man's world and in that, I really admired her.

I really can't be arsed with all the hatred or 'glee' that's come out on the news of her death, but then, nobody in my family was a miner, nor in any occupation that could go on strike. In fact, my folks did well during the Thatcher years and for that, I thank her.
