Margaret Thatcher RIP
It is not my style to speak ill of dead. However, I think Margaret Thatcher was a twin of Ronald Reagan. They both put their countries on the path of neo-conservatism from which these countries have not recovered yet.
It is worth noting, Thatcher gave her full-hearted supported to Chile's brutal dictator, Augusto Pincohet, and wanted to appease apartheid South Africa (it was Canada's own Brian Mulroney who countered Thatcher on this, wanting to maintain full sanctions).
The death of a leading world figure is always a sad event, but we cannot overlook the damage those like Thatcher and Reagan did, in their own countries, and on the world stage.
