The Iron Lady is gone....

I lived in London in the early 90s and I saw first hand the changes and modifications that Margaret Thatcher had made to the British economy, in an attempt to wean the people off of the government teat of Socialism.

For her efforts, she was despised and vilified.

But her efforts worked. One of the reasons the U.K. has such a problem with illegal immigration is that Thatcher made England the European hotspot for jobs and growth. The British Pound had real value and many other currencies did not.

She is a hero to all of Europe.

I am deeply saddened by her passing.
