Rest in peace Margaret Thatcher


She Was Only A Grocer’s Daughter. That is the name of one of the albums released by The Blow Monkeys in 1987 and was a reference to Margaret Thatcher. She passed away today at the age of 87. Baroness Thatcher was Conservative prime minister from 1979 to 1990. She was the first woman to hold the post  and was called the Iron Lady. She won general elections in 1979, 1983 and 1987. Baroness Thatcher’s government privatised several state-owned industries and she was also in power when the UK went to war with Argentina over the Falkland Islands in 1982. I for one admired her. Rest in peace Margaret Thatcher.
