Margaret Thatcher’s Battle

This piece in the Daily Mail is quite a sad read, but definitely worth a look. Written by Carol Thatcher, Margaret Thatcher’s daughter, it offers a glimpse into the Iron Lady’s ongoing battle with dementia while also providing a personal look into her life by someone who obviously loves her dearly.

Hat tip:  Conservative Home.

Dementia is a terrible illness, particularly for those that have to look after the sufferers and my sympathy goes out to Carol Thatcher. Whilst not everyone agreed with her policies, Margaret Thatcher was a conviction politician, unlike the current government she introduced change, much of it for the better and set out the foundations for our recovery as a proud nation. And, unlike the current conservative party, we knew precisely what she and her party stood for, before, during and after her election victories. It is a great pity that, in her twolight years, this lady must suffer with dementia.

I am saddened by this article, especially since Thatcher is one of my true heroes. I believe she will go down in history as being one of the greatest, if not THE greatest Prime Minister of Great Britain.

I’m with Chris.Lady Thatcher was the creator of so much opportunity and she changed the landscape of Britain and it’s politics in a positive and (I think will be shown to be) wholly beneficial way.

The greatest Prime Minister we have had IMHO.
