Today, April 8, died "Iron Lady", former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. She was 87 years old.
As the TV channel Sky News, a representative of the former prime minister Lord Bell said that
"Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died after hitting this morning».
Recall it was the 71st Prime Minister of Great Britain (Conservative Party) in the 1979-1990 years. Also, she was the first and so far only woman who visited this post, as well as the first woman to become prime minister of a European state.
It is noteworthy that Thatcher's premiership was the longest in the XX century. Earned the nickname "Iron Lady" for criticism of the Soviet leadership, she brought to life a number of conservative measures, which have become part of the policy of so-called "Thatcherism".
