Margaret Thatcher, British Iron Lady, Dead at 87

David R. Sands at the Washington Times offers a piece on the death of Margaret Thatcher.

Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who transformed Britain in the 1980s with a core of conservative convictions and history’s most formidable handbag, died Monday of a stroke. She was 87 years old.

The daughter of a English grocer, Mrs. Thatcher shattered class and gender barriers to win election in 1979 as Britain’s first female prime minister, engineer Britain’s victory over Argentina in the 1982 war over the Falkland Islands, and become a critical ally and ideological soul mate of President Ronald Reagan in the West’s Cold War triumph over Soviet communism in Europe.
